  • The total beauty of nature. Bring good shoes, because the way could be slippery. If you want to go down to the northernmost point of Skye, you have to hike/climb a little part. But it is worth it.
  • Great bothy. There are two (and a half) rooms, connected without doors and three sleeping places. If you are lucky you can get a really nice view, but you can also see a lot of fog. If the weather is nice, you can sit inside, look at the sea and try to spot some whales. There are also some old binoculars. Be aware that there is a lot of traffic going on. If you plan to stay the night, you have to come early in the day. And be aware that there are many people are coming late in the evening and will wake you up, which is kinda annoying.
