Loch Sneosdal circuit, Kilmuir
An excellent circuit to a hidden loch beneath impressive cliffs. The clifftop section can be omitted and the return made by the waymarked route - reducing the walk to Grade 2.
Lower section of route has good track at first and is waymarked but crosses boggy moorland. Optional upper part of route has steep ascent and descent on grass. 2 new fences have been erected on the route and have to be negotiated.
Bus number 57 from Portree - 4 times a day. Ask to get off at Kilmuir village hall - by the bottle recycling point.
Kilmuir Hall car park(A855) - next to bottle banks.
