This stunningly beautiful walk follows a superb old grassy footpath as far as a monument to the celebrated Gaelic poet Sorley MacLean, overlooking Hallaig - the subject of his most famous poem. The walk continues to explore the ruins of the village of Hallaig; this shorter section is much rougher with no clear path and can be omitted if preferred, reducing the route to a Grade 1 walk.


Waymarked walk on good path to the monument. Beyond this reaching the ruins of Hallaig means much rougher going with no clear path.
