An easy trail offering some of the best views of the Cuillin hills to be found anywhere on the island.
Park at the Forestry Commission car park off the Glen Brittle road, The Fairy Pools at Glen Brittle. Follow the gently climbing fire road as it runs parallel with the road below.
Once over the Bealach Brittle, descend to a junction offering a trail with yellow and blue waymarkers. We recommend you follow the yellow trail which drops to the coast.
Admire the sea views while riding parallel to the coast, look out for sea eagles. Bear right and begin climbing back up on switchback fire road through the forest. Don’t miss the waterfalls running right under the road in a couple of places.
Look out for the blue signposted road off to your right as you descend at speed. This takes you back to the car park but before that treats you to mind blowing views over the Cuillin hills.
