Loch Coruisk, at the very heart of the Cuillin, is the most magnificent of all Scottish freshwater lochs. Whilst you are very likely to get wet feet from the boggy terrain, this is a small price to pay for the superlative mountain scenery along the way. If walking only one side of the loch, the south side has easier going and the best views.


There is an extremely boggy path throughout, not always easy to follow and also crosses rough, rocky slopes in places. The crossing of the river at the foot of the loch (and indeed the head) could be impossible after heavy rains.

Public Transport

Walk is accessed by boat service from Elgol village (booking necessary). Elgol is served by a local bus from Broadford.


Jetty, Loch na Cuilce (reached by boat from Elgol). Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
