Plock of Kyle, Kyle of Lochalsh

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The Plock of Kyle is the beautiful promontory west of Kyle of Lochalsh. The road to the Skye Bridge crosses its southern shores, but away from the road the Plock is a wonderful place to explore, with wild flower meadows, native woodland, a series of hidden rocky coves and a fine viewpoint. The Plock is also rich in wildlife, and this is an excellent place to look for otters. Whilst the directions may seem complex due to the many paths, the exact route taken matters little - the Plock is a great place to explore. It is owned by the Kyle and Lochalsh Community Trust who have developed access for the benefit of locals and visitors alike.


Straightforward walking; the short loop near the start is an all-abilities path; parts of the other paths are less formal and can be boggy in places.

Public Transport

None to start described, but the Plock can be reached from the centre of Kyle of Lochalsh by heading up through houses from the Main Street. Kyle is well served by Citylink buses from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness, and by trains.


The Plock car park off the A87 Skye Bridge road. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
