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.
