The Ironstone Mines and the Burma Road
This superb and very varied walk explores Raasay's heritage of ironstone mining. Peaceful Raasay may seem an unlikely spot for a walk visiting industrial mining heritage and a track called the 'Burma Road', but it was once the scene of bustling activity. A railway climbed a steep include from East Suisnish pier and then over the hills to the mine, which closed early in the twentieth century.
Clear paths, tracks and minor roads.
