Luib and Torrin Straths circuit
This walk crosses from coast to coast and back again across one of Skye's narrowest sections, using two old routes between the hills. It gives a quiet walk through wild countryside with some good views.
The route follows old rights of way and only short sections are completely pathless. However the going is rough in places and there are many very boggy sections. A fast-flowing stream has to be forded in Strath Mor, which could be dangerous in spate.
Luib is well served by buses between Broadford and Portree; Torrin is on the Elgol bus route which has a much less frequent service.
Luib hamlet; alternatively Torrin.
