Climbing & Walking

Elgol and the Strathaird Peninsula abound with stunning walks and climbs to suit all tastes and abilities. We are experienced walkers in the area and we are always delighted to describe the walks around Coruisk House. If you would like to have a look at the walks around Coruisk House before you arrive please look at the excellent Walk Highlands website at the following link which will show you the walks closest to us.

Lovely walks can take you to Prince Charlie’s cave where the “Prince in the Heather” hid in 1746; or to the beach at Camasunary, described by many as one of the best walks in the country, taking the walker towards the Cuillin (more experienced walkers can continue on to Loch Coruisk via the well known “The Bad Step”). Another of our favourite walks takes you to the two cleared villages of Boreraig and Suisnish starting at the ruined Cill Chriosd church and taking in fine views of Sleat and Rum on the way.

Climbing in the area is unsurpassed and experienced mountaineers return again and again for the unique Cuillin. Several of the mountains are perfectly accessible to ordinary walkers: Sgurr na Stree and Bla Bheinn are our favourite climbs and Marsco also gives superb views of the whole Cuillin range. Sgurr na Banachdich and Bruach na Frithe are the two easiest true Cuillin from which the whole ridge can be seen stretching out on either side.
