  • Truly an amazing place to visit, very peaceful and undisturbed. Would suggest a morning trip for a quieter walk as more people began to arrive around 12.
  • Beautiful and peaceful lake with stunning views of the Cuillin hills as the backdrop. After a brisk 10mins walk from the pier whilst following up the river, it opens to a breathtaking landscape which you almost have to yourself (and the rest of the tour group). As we have only 1.5hr before the ferry departs, we could only hike to the other end of the lake. If you have more time, I can imagine you can hike further towards the Cuillins. The total boat tour (Misty Isle) departing from Elgol takes 3hr. Highly recommended. Book in advance as we saw some last minute turn-ups being turned away.
