Coille Dalavil

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The start looks unpromising, however once over the first stretch of moorland the walk reaches a beautiful pine and beech woodland by a remote loch before continuing the deserted remains of Dalavil and a fantastic outlook over the sea to the Cuillins. If you don't mind very rugged going, the walk can be extended along the coast to Tarskavaig.


Good track, becoming rougher and later a path, often very wet underfoot. Becoming indistinct on later sections.

Public Transport

None to start. Nearest bus Sabhal Mor Ostaig approx. 4km away. Buses 51 & 52 from Portree and Broadford.


From the road between Kilbeg and Tarskavaig, on the uphill section where a grassy track heads to the left. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
