A 9 mile loop up the west side of the Isle of Raasay
From the ferry pier follow the road to a T-junction. At the junction turn left and follow this road passing round the back of 18th Century Raasay House, through forestry for a short way before emerging from the trees above the coast. The route passes the Pictish stone and a short (10minute) diversion on foot takes you to the Temptation hill viewpoint. Continue the traverse alongside but above the coast until after three miles the road climbs up and inland by way of a big horseshoe bend. Ignore the first turning to the left and instead turn left when the T- junction is reached. You soon pass the footpath to Dun Caan (a 1-1.5 hour walk). Copntinue to Inver, where a 30 minute walk leads to the secluded Inver beach, one frequented by the Queen. Return to the T- junction above the big horseshoe bend. Ignore the turning and this time continue on the same road past the youth hostel and into the forest. Shortly after passing the church turn right along the edge of the forest and round the bay back to the pier.
