This short but rough walk visits the cave where Bonnie Prince Charlie spent his last night on Skye before escaping by boat once more. Excellent coastal scenery and stunning views throughout.
Boggy path to the bay; awkward boulders on the beach and scramble up to the cave. Access to the cave is for a couple of hours either side of low tide - click here for tide times (remember to adjust by one hour as stated for summer).
Local bus service from Broadford.
Parking at Elgol jetty.
