Our guided walks have been carefully selected to highlight some of Harris' best scenery. The walks will be led by the North Harris Trust Ranger, Scaladale Centre guides or one of our guest speakers. The terrain will be very varied from scree slopes to peat bogs. The mountain routes might include exposed ridgelines and steep climbs/ descents.
Please be honest about your fitness and ability before attempting these routes. Most of these walks will not be on surfaced paths therefore walking boots and waterproofs are essential. We reserve the right to turn individuals away who do not have the correct equipment.
Clisham Horseshoe This is one of Harris' classic mountain routes taking in the highest point in the Western Isles, An Cliseam (799m). The walk starts off by following the Scaladale River on an old, vague path before heading up to the ridge of Mullach an Langa. From this point on, the views are simply stunning and you remain on high ground taking several ridges and summits before reaching the summit of An Cliseam.
