Diabaig Coastal Circuit

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A challenging coastal walk through spectacularly rugged and rocky scenery. The return route involves some road walking but the views are ample reward.


There is a path throughout, but it is rough and rocky and traverses steep ground in places and can be overgrown with bracken in the summer. This is a tougher walk than might be expected from the map - a real adventure.

Public Transport
