Road Directions

Situated 14 miles south west of Broadford at the tip of the Strathaird peninsula, the village is reached by a dramatic road through the Red Cuillins and Strath Suardal with superb views passing the ruined Cill Chriosd and its fascinating and superbly located graveyard.

Visitors can take a boat from Elgol across Loch Scavaig to the entrance of Loch Coruisk (meaning ‘cauldron of water’) - a glacial loch nearly 2 miles long but only a couple of hundred yards wide, lying in the shadow of the highest peaks of the Black Cuillin.

There are lots of hikes from Elgol along the coast or into both the Red and Black Cuillins.
