Rubha Hunish

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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.


Moorland path, sometimes boggy in places, a steep scrambly descent down rocks leads to the headland, though this section can be omitted if it is too daunting.

Public Transport

Small car park; take the minor road from the phone box near Kilmaluag signed for Shulista to reach it. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
