Trotternish RidgeIsle of Skye Category Outdoor Activities, Nature & Wildlife
The Trotternish peninsula in the north east of Skye is dominated by a spectacular ridge of hills that runs for over 30km along its backbone. There are 13 named summits, from Beinn Dearg in the south to Meal na Suiramach in the north.
The result is a wonderful combination of unique scenery, outstanding views and first-rate walking terrain along the crest of this undulating escarpment.
Despite what you may read elsewhere, there are many points along its length where you can gain or leave the ridge on either the eastern or western sides, allowing ascents of individual summits or shorter walks along sections of the ridge. But for the full experience, a backpack, a tent and fit legs are needed.
