This rugged circuit is a real adventure, visiting the highest part of the Minginish coastal cliffs at Biod Ruadh, and the two strange hills Preshal Mor and Preshal Beg. The Preshals - in particular Preshal Beg - are remarkable for their hexagonal basalt columns, reminiscent of Staffa or the Giant's Causeway.
Pathless walk over tough terrain: bogs, steep grass, heather and crumbling cliff edges. Good navigational skills essential.
None to start.
Near end of minor road to Talisker.
