A straightforward walk to a delightful tidal island; great coastal scenery.


NB: Causeway linking Oronsay to Skye is covered by the sea for a couple of hours or so each side of high tide. Click here for tide times. It is important to check the times to ensure you will not be stranded on Oronsay. The path to the island is easy to follow though boggy in parts.

Public Transport
