Loop trail through Forestry Commission land just north of Broadford on the A87 with spectacular views on it’s outer edge across to mainland and Skye Bridge. An ideal bike and dog walking trail too, since there is no grazing. There is a big parking area but height restriction so high-top campers are better off parking up beside the cemetary on the roadside.
Follow the well made trail down from the parking to the shore and over a bridge. At the first fork, follow the right hand trail, Rathad na Cluinne, the Childrens’ Path.
Stay on the broad trail right the way around, taking in views to the left out to sea and towards the mainland. Not much need for explanation on this trail, so here are a few images of the outer section of the walk:
Up this rise in the path you’ll find a well-placed bench with great views to take in. From this point onwards, the path drops again back towards Broadford. You’ll see the new Campsite:
Saw some early gorse along the old road:
The path then rises up to the cemetary and leads back to the car park.
There is a rubbish bin just inside the gate to the cemetary.
There’s a dog-poo bin at the entrance to the car park.
Nice coffee at Cafe Sia, in Broadford.
