Skye Trail

In September 2022 I went on to tackle the Skye Trail. I was just done with walking the West Highland Way (WHW) so despite a small injury on my foot arch I was ready to go.

To plan this hike I used following guide, together with a book and a waterproof map.

To reach either end of the trail bus options are available. I decided to start from the northern end.

I followed theses stages:

Day 1 Rubha Hunish to Flodigarry, spent the night at the lovely hostel there

Day 2 Flodigarry to below Old man of Storr, camped on a side road near the lake.

Day 3 Old man of Storr to Portree. Night in a small boutique Hotel

Day 4 Portree to Sligachan, camp at Sligachan Camping

Day 5 Sligachan to Camasunary Bach, it was a long day and night spent at the Bach

Day 6 Camasunary to Blà Bheinn Car Park near to Torin, wild camp

DAy 7 Torin to Broadford

The trail is rugged but very nice and is becoming quite populare so quite easy to follow.

The bad step and Blà Bheinn were quite easy to hike but I am more or less experienced and had really nice weather. I recommend this hike to anyone looking for great space and not so many people.

I was there in the begininng of september and it was perfect. The midges and mosquito were not so annoying, in comparison with the west highland way.
