ABOUT THE POINT OF SLEAT
This is one of Skye’s least known but most idyllic beaches, sheltered from the wind with a view from the lighthouse sweeps round taking in Mallaig, the Ardnamurchan peninsula, the isles of Eigg and Rum, and Rubh an Dunain. The walk is 5 miles with rough track at points, one steep hill and moorland paths.
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.
