POINT OF SLEAT ISLE SKYE

This is a fairly hard route not for the faint hearted.

This is a great walk to the most southerly point on Skye, on the Sleat peninsula, at the very end of a single track road south from Armadale, the walk uses the same path there and back, at the end of the car park the is a large metal farm gate, left of this there is a smaller wooded gate allowing access, follow the direction that the sign points, the first section of the walk simple follow the rough road as it regularly drops and raises over the Heather moor.

After crossing a muddy section the path it meets a rocky shoreline and turns left around a rocky headland.
The path now is a little vague crossed by more rocks, but follow the shore line, with the shore in sight you will reach a Marker Post, ahead is the sandy beach, to the right the path continues to the Point of Sleat, if you want to carry on to the Lighthouse head back to the Marker Post, from the beach.

This is a modern lighthouse unmanned and completely automatic from here there are some fantastic views out to the small isles of Rum, Canna and Eigg, on a clear day.

This walk covers a distance of 6 miles long a diverse and changing moorland and sea coast, with the average time to complete the walk about 2 hours, depending on how fast you wish to take the route, head back to car park on the same route as you went up.
