Trotternish Ridge

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

One of the finest ridge traverses in Britain. Spectacular views throughout.


A very long and challenging walk with much ascent and descent; surprisingly for a major ridge there is no path most of the way, though there is much firm grassy going. Most people split it into a 2 day hike with a camp or bivvy on the ridge itself.
