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.
This is a linear walk finishing in Portree. Bus number 57 from Portree, get off at foot of Loch Langaig footpath - 0.5km north from roadside picnic area by the loch at Dunans.
Start of Loch Langaig/Harsco footpath, Flodigarry.
