Tonight at 6.45pm on BBC2 Scotland there’s an Adventure Show special on the Skye Trail. One version of this unofficial route, the idea for which was originally devised by David Paterson, will be walked by Cameron McNeish, starting from Rubha Hunish in northern Skye, heading along the Trotternish Ridge and through the Cuillin before finishing at Broadford. Cameron reckons this might just be the best challenging multi-day walk in Britain.
Walkhighlands has set up a website giving details of the Skye Trail and is working with the local Skye and Lochalsh Marketing Group to try to improve the route and hopefully eventually gain official status.
