Loch an Duin
Scalpay lies off the eastern coast of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, a few square kilometres of sheep, rock, heather and bog extensively chewed into by multiple sea lochs renowned for their shellfishing. The Scalpay Heritage Trail (http://www.visitouterhebrides.co.uk/way-finder/scalpay-wf241) forms an arc around the south-east of the island, and on a blustery, showery day myself and Indy the Tripod Dog gave it a go. We started from our holiday home, hence the additional bit at the start and end of what is fundamentally a circular walk.
Eilean Glas lighthouse
About 4km are covered on roads; the rest is rough moorland guided by marker posts. Some might say there are not enough given that on plenty of occasions the next post isnt visible from the current one, but if you continue in the same direction it will probably appear. Haphazard trods have evolved along most of it, but (particularly on the eastern section prior to the turning point of the Eilean Glas lighthouse) theres far too much gloopy ground for paths to spring up along the whole length. The route visits the highest point of the island, Beinn Sgorabhaig; this is unsurprisingly an excellent vantage point.
