The start looks unpromising, however once over the first stretch of moorland the walk reaches a beautiful woodland and loch and then the deserted remains of Dalavil and a fantastic outlook over the sea to the Cuillins. The walk can be extended along the coast to Tarskavaig.

Rough track and later a faint path which can be wet underfoot. There is no path for the short final section to the coast.
