The footpath along the north shore of Loch Sligachan was once the main route north to Portree; today it gives a pleasant, peaceful walk with good views; you can extend the walk further by visiting the Aird peninsula.


Initially the route is boggy and there are two streams to cross which may be awkward in wet weather in the first couple of kilometres. Beyond there is a good path.

Public Transport
