Loch Sligachan

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The footpath along the north shore of Loch Sligachan was once the main route north to Portree; today it gives a pleasant, peaceful walk with good views; you can have a drink at Sligachan before heading back.


Good path until the final section near Sligachan; the route is boggier here and there are two streams to cross which may be awkward in wet weather.

Public Transport

Bus number 59 has a daily service, two on Fridays. Get off at Peinachorran where the bus turns round. Alternatively, do the walk from the Sligachan end which is served by more regular buses.


Car park at end of the Braes road. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
