Beautiful Rubha Hunish, the northernmost point of the island, is a magical place; this is the best walk on Skye for seabird and marine mammal watching.


Well made path on outward route, some slightly boggy ground elsewhere; a steep scrambly descent down rocks leads to the headland, though this section can be omitted if it is too daunting.

Public Transport

Bus from Portree ask to get off at Kilmaluag phone box/Shulista road end - the bus can be caught at Duntulm for the return.


Car park just off A855; take the minor road from the phone box near Kilmaluag signed for Shulista. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
