Isle of Eigg In­ner Hebrides

Trail Running (UK) - - Routes -

This is a stun­ning route, which pro­vides out­stand­ing views over the Isle of Eigg, across the cliffs above Cleadale, where very few peo­ple ven­ture and the white-tailed ea­gles soar. This route crosses croft­land through the town­ship of Howlin be­fore climb­ing 1000ft up the zigzag path. From the top of the cliffs, the track winds above the Cleadale crofts and pro­vides amaz­ing views over the Cuillins of Rum and Skye. The run fin­ishes above your start point, where an ex­cit­ing lit­tle scram­ble leads you down the cliffs to the most scenic wash­ing line in the Hebrides, out­side La­georna guest house.

Eigg has lots to ex­plore and one of the best wild camp­ing spots in Scot­land – why not stay and try some of the ex­cel­lent moun­tain bik­ing or sea kayak­ing while you’re there? Laraine Wyn-Jones, Trail Run­ning Run1000Miles group www.eiggad­ven­ @eiggad­ven­tures
