Heritage Trail: Tolsta to Lional

Following the line of an ancient route the Heritage Trail provides a satisfying walk along the east coast of north Lewis, the return can easily be done by bus. Underfoot it is very wet and the landscape can be bleak at times but with some impressive coastal highlights.


Apart from the minor roads at both ends, this route crosses very boggy moorland with infrequent waymarkers. Appropriate footwear (flippers!) and navigation skills essential. Return by bus possible.

Public Transport
