Walk with writer and broadcaster Cameron McNeish through the magnificent landscapes of the Isle of Skye as he travels from the tip of the Trotternish Ridge to Broadford on the 76-mile Skye Trail.
Cameron’s route carried him from Rubha Hunish, the northern tip of the Trotternish Peninsula, past the ancient Duntulm Castle and down the long undulating Trotternish ridge, with visits to the geological gems of the Quiraing and Storr. Beyond Portree, in the area known as The Braes, he learned about the last battle to take place on British soil.
After an amble along the shores of Loch Sligachan the route visits the Sligachan Inn, the cradle of Scottish mountaineering, before heading down Glen Sligachan to the most atmospheric loch in Scotland, Loch Coruisk. Beyond the infamous Bad Step Cameron climbs Bla Bheinn before descending to Torrin and a coastal walk to Skye’s deserted villages of Suisnish and Boreraig. The route then takes its finale along an old railway line to Broadford, and the end of a magnificent island journey.
