Skye Trail 1: Rubha Hunish to Floddigarry

Rubha Hunish

The trail starts from Skye's most northerly tip, Rubha Hunish, and follows a spectacular section of the coast. There is a brief detour inland before the coast is rejoined above dramatic cliffs to reach Flodigarry and its hostel. Duntulm Hotel is near the start of the walk but there are no shops or cafes on this section. Flodigarry Hostel at the end of the walk sells basic foodstuffs, and adjacent is the Flodigarry Hotel which serves meals, whilst Staffin 1.5 km along the A855 has 2 shops, 2 summer cafes serving evening meals, and a campsite.

Terrain - Rough coastal walking, often boggy, the optional descent to the headland includes a short rocky scramble, minor roads. Cattle and sheep grazing, dogs to be kept under control. There is one burn crossing which can be impassable after heavy rain.
