Sithean Bhealaich Chumhaing

In Portree with an hour or two to spare for some exercise? There's no path here, but a good stretch of the legs with a rewarding view.

Get to NG496448 at the bend in the public road in Torvaig. From there, go through the gate and follow the farm track north and you will come to a memorial (marked on the OS 1:25,000 map) to the Nicolsons of Scorrybreac.

Beyond that is a gate through which you access the steep climb to the top of the cliffline. If you have time there is wonderful walking to be enjoyed along the edges of the cliffs east and north towards Sithean Bhealaich Chumhaing. You can wander along the top of the cliffs as far as you like, with great views to Raasay and the Scottish mainland to your east, and Beinn Tianabhaig to the south. This walk takes you to some beautiful spots to sit down on the grass and loose yourself in the moment...
