A visit to the tidal island is sheer delight. Stunning coastal scenery on the island - and its superb views - mean that this must rank as one of the best shorter walks on Skye. Be sure to check the tide times though or you could become stranded!
The causeway linking Oronsay to Skye is covered by the sea for two to three hours or so each side of high tide - it's essential to check tide times before setting out. The path to the island is easy to follow though boggy in parts.
Bus 56A calls infrequently at the Ullinish House Hotel; it is possible to do the walk and return to Portree using this service.
End of minor branch road near Ullinish Country Lodge.
