Harris Walkway 1: Scaladal to Tarbert
The Harris Walkway (Frith na Rathaid na Hearraidh) is a route opened in 2001 which links up a series of old paths to make a route of over 20 miles from the northern end of Harris to the machair at Seilebost. The route was devised by Bill Lawson; it's now part of the Hebridean Way long distance path. Though it is boggy underfoot for much of the way, the route provides some great views; on Walkhighlands we describe it in two parts from north to south, with a break at the island capital, Tarbert.
Waymarked moorland paths with some sections on minor roads. Parts of the route can be very wet underfoot.
Bus from Tarbert or Stornoway to start.
500m east of the bridge over the Abhainn Scaladail on the A859.
There are no walk reports for this walk. Why not write the first?
