Long but fairly easy going walk with wonderful views of the Cuillin and islands, taking in beautiful sandy bay of Camasunary.


A long but straightforward circuit on good paths, tracks and minor roads. Two sections along the coast path are near a steep cliff edge and may not please vertigo sufferers.
