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 and developed with funding from several bodies. Though it is boggy underfoot for much of the way, the route provides some great views; on Walkhighlands we describe it in two parts, with a break at the island capital, Tarbert.

Terrain

Waymarked moorland paths with some sections on minor roads. Parts of the route can be very wet underfoot.

Public Transport

Bus from Tarbert or Stornoway to start.

Start

500m east of the bridge over the Abhainn Scaladail on the A859. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
