This enjoyable circuit explores the surroundings of Scalasaig. The route climbs up to the Lord Colonsay monument before following the 'old road' up to a fine viewpoint. The return takes in the abandoned fishing village of Riasg Buidhe before a pathless final section along the coastline. The walk can be shortened by omitting the monument and Riasg Buidhe sections.
Partly on tracks, also with pathless, rough and boggy sections.
Ferry to Scalasaig from Oban, Kennacraig or Port Askaig on Islay.
