Beautiful walk

We started in drumbuie so did the walk back to front but it was so pretty and pretty easy expect for the crossing of beach at the drumbuie end. Wear long socks and closed toe shoes in case of ticks!

Good short family walk
Aug. 2018 • Family
This is two miles with a few short hills. Good for families. Well signposted. Start at the station.

Chance to see the wildlife and shoreline

Wellies or walking shoes recommended.

Part of Scottish National Trust

Very quiet, we saw only a few other walkers.

We then went to Plockton Inn for a great lunch

Very quiet, didn't pass anyone on the way. Stunning views and fairly easy trek. Even the kids liked it. We even had sunshine which enhanced the experience. A lovely way to spend a couple of hours.

if you enjoy walking on a variety of terrain, this is for you.
It was easy to navigate and had no interference from land owners etc.
Plenty of places of interest to stop and enjoy.
Plenty of places to stop for bites and drinks.
The local people are very helpful if you go astray.

Enjoy.....

Always something interesting to see and some stunning views to the Skye
Apr. 2016
The Coastal Path at the crofting village of Drumbuie takes you through active croft lands with cattle, sheep and arable farming on a small scale in the old style. Stout shoes are advisable and sometimes a bit of mud is unavoidable. The circular path takes you by the shore and in places it is uneven and steep. There are often heron, divers, snipe and lots more bird life. Otters are frequently seen playing in the kelp or fishing, but you have to be patient and quiet! A pair of binoculars is worth taking.
It is always lovely but In the evenings, especially as the sun is setting, there are spectacular views to Skye and the Cuillin mountains. Dun Caan on Raasay is also prominent on the horizon to the west .
The path snakes around a few small inlets, signposted by NTS way markers and in a few places it is a bit indistinct but if you follow your nose you usually will pick up a well made path again. All too soon you will come to another tiny settlement of Port An Eorna and then leave the coast, past old woodlands and up to the station at Duirinish, which is another convenient starting point on the circle. From the railway cottages at Duirinish it is a short walk over another couple of stiles back to Drumbuie. The walk will take an hour so but many will want to linger to savour it for a bit longer...

Amazing views - a must if you are in the area!
Jul. 2014 • Couples
An ideal walk of about 2 miles in length, that is suitable for a range of walkers, and not too difficult. The views are stunning and if you are lucky you will be able to spot seals on the rocky coves.

The walk starts from Duirinish train station and heads over the level crossing towards Port-an-Eorna, a small hamlet with only 4 houses, that I could see.

Along the way, there is a sign, which states, 'Coast walk to Drumbuie', which highlights where to turn off the single track road and up the footpath towards the coastline.

The views out across the lochs along this middle part of the walk for the next mile are simply stunning. I had my binoculars with me and was able to spot sea-eagles soaring overhead and seals resting on parts of the rocky shoreline in the distance.

In parts the path seems to disappear for a short while, but soon becomes more distinct again. The terrain is varied along the route, being slightly boggy and rocky at times. Keep your eye out for the Scottish National Trust marker posts, which are dotted alongside the path.

When you arrive at the pebble / rocky bay, turn left away from the coastline to head back inland towards Drumbuie, you will then cross over the railway line and see the croft in the distance.

In summary well worth making the effort on an afternoon or morning, whilst visiting the Duirinish, Drumbuie or Plockton area.
