Maclean's Skull Cave and Glengarrisdale Bay

This very remote walk crosses to the wild northwest coast to visit Glengarrisdale Bay. For many centuries the skull of a Maclean chief slain in battle could be found here, but the skull went missing in 1976; instead the walk visits a sea cave and a lonely bothy.


Extremely rough and wet ATV tracks; the route is not always clear and navigational skills are needed.

Public Transport

None to the start; infrequent Jura bus service runs from Feolin Ferry to as far north as Ardlussa.


Parking area at northern end of public road, north of Lealt. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
