Calum's Path and Fladda, from Arnish

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This superb and varied circular walk starts from the end of 'Calum's Road' at the northern end of Raasay. It leads through some beautiful native birchwoods, following a path built by Calum MacLeod with his brother, before he started on his more famous road. It leads to a slimy tidal causeway connecting with Eilean Fladday (or Fladda) - which you can cross with care at low tide. The return follows another fine path back to Torran.


Clear paths, steep in places, though Calum's Path is a little overgrown with heather in places. There are a couple of very short boggy sections. The tidal causeway to Fladda is over slippery seaweed covered rocks; crossing it is optional and only possible at low tide.
