Skye Trail 1: Rubha Hunish to Flodigarry

The trail starts from Skye's most northerly tip, Rubha Hunish, and follows a spectacular but rough section of the coastline, continuing above dramatic cliffs to reach Flodigarry and its hostel. Duntulm Hotel is near the start of the walk but there are no shops or cafes on this section. Flodigarry Hostel at the end of the walk sells basic foodstuffs, and adjacent is the Flodigarry Hotel which serves meals, whilst Staffin 1.5 km along the A855 has 2 shops, 2 summer cafes serving evening meals, and a campsite.


Rough coastal walking, often boggy, the optional descent to the headland includes a short rocky scramble. Cattle and sheep grazing, dogs to be kept under control. There is one burn crossing which could be difficult after heavy rain.
