Trip Grading / Activity Level

This is a stunning journey along Scotland's rugged north and northwest coast and remote interior and will appeal to hikers of all abilities and inclinations. There are also alternative hikes available on days when a more strenuous hike is planned. 

The walks will vary in length from 3 to 7 miles per day (5 to 11.5kms) or approximately 2 to 5 hours of walking with longer or shorter options available on most days.

Most walks involve some elevation and gain loss, although there are also many flat sections.

The walks are typically along white sand beaches and across open moorland, where you are never far from the ocean. Most of the trails are good underfoot, although some sections may become muddy after rainfall.

Good quality waterproof hiking boots are essential.
