  • After setting out from the Car Park on this walk, we got slightly lost on the directions but it was a stunningly beautiful walk; the views were sublime and well worth wading through the Bog and Marsh ...  more »
  • A breathtakingly beautiful place, located in the extreme north-west of Scotland. If you ever go to the lands of Sir Sean Connery, don't just stay in Edinburgh or another major city, seen here, is far but I assure you that it is worth hiking like it or not. You'll be surrounded by / of unique landscapes that you will hardly forget. To get to the cabin from the parking area, you must cross a (not very difficult) path in which the only requirement to get is to have an acceptable footwear and being able to walk. The trail, come a time disappears and you keep walking on their own, but worth it. It is not suitable for sybarites, don't expect great amenities, are 4 walls and a roof, you don't need more. You get a blanket or sleeping bag and go. If you get and you wake up just before the Sunrise, you can see whales clearly, passing very close to the cliff where the cabin is situated. * Tip: I went with two friends after spending the day traveling and seeing the island, we arrived at dusk and there was already enough... total people, that night we were 9 people in a cabin enabled 4, so we recommend you to be there early to catch the best sites. PD. In the cabin there is a shovel... you will know that it is there when you arrive. PostPostdata. Does not much coverage what if a serial killer will need it quite painful.
