Skye Trail 3: The Storr to Portree - coastal route

The third stage of the Skye Trail long distance route, takes a short section of road to an unpromising start across rough moorland at the coast. This soon leads to a fabulous parade along the top of dramatic coastal cliffs with superb views. The stage ends in Portree where there is a hostel, campsite, B&Bs and hotels, restaurants, shops, banks and a post office.


Pathless, boggy and rough for the first three km after leaving the road; excellent but pathless cliff-top walking follows but with some steep ground.
