ABOUT RUBHA HUNISH
Beautiful Rubha Hunish, the northernmost point of the island, is a magical place; this is the best walk on Skye for seabird and marine mammal watching. Moorland path, sometimes boggy in places, a steep scrambly descent down rocks leads to the headland. The walk is 5.5 miles long and will include a visit to Rubha Hunish Bothy.
ATLAS Arts has collaborated with local walking groups and artists to curate a series of walks around the Isle of Skye and Lochalsh. This programme connects community, art and the environment through a series of walks designed to highlight different areas of Skye and Lochalsh and introduce participants to the work of local artists and how the environment inspires their creativity.
