CÒIG SGIATHAN | FIVE WINGS // With Cailean Maclean – The Amar Loop, Struan
25 WALKS ON THE ISLE OF SKYE & LOCHALSH
Friday 27 October – Old Sleat road with Step It Up Highland, Dunvegan group
At a little over a mile in length and entirely on road metal the Amar loop walk is not physically challenging. But there is plenty in the vicinity to stimulate interest and the imagination.
A small group, many of whom were associated with the Dunvegan Walking Group, undertook the walk.
With frequent stops to discuss place-names…
…aspects of the area’s past, the functioning of the yair or cairidh in Loch Beag (which the high tide had concealed) and to consult a local tradition bearer who happened to be sorting sheep on the route.
The outing took about one and three-quarter hours to complete. A gently easy pace ideal for those that need to be kind to themselves… very interesting, friendly and enjoyable exercise for a pleasant October morning.
