This walk combines a visit to two remarkable attractions. The Whaligoe steps, all 330 of them, descend a cliff-face to one of the least-accessible harbours you could imagine, whilst inland is the Cairn of Get, a very well preserved chambered cairn. Extreme care is needed on the steps.
The path to the Cairn of Get is through rough pastures and is waymarked. The Whaligoe Steps are very steep with unprotected vertical drops into the sea; great care is needed.
There is a bus stop at Whaligoe where the route crosses the A99.
Parking area signed for Cairn of Get.
