We took on this walk on a fairly fine day, it may me a bit more challenging if the weather isn’t great. The walk takes you through a spectacular forest, where you will see lots of fairy doors and fairies a amongst the trees, placed there I think by local school children. The walk takes you along and up a forest trail before opening up to amazing views and the Duirinish Stone, it stands 5 metres high and weighs in at 5 tonnes, and was placed there in 2000 by local residents using nothing more than ‘ropes, Pully’s and manpower’.
High,y recommended walk for all

Lovely hour or so long walk through woodlands and over moors. It was great to finally find a walk in the area that was accessible for children! There are some steep parts but ok for little legs, the walk through the woodland is full of fairy houses which is lovely, the steep climb up to the top of the moor is worth it for the great views of the Loch and surrounding area. It’s also worth the little climb up to the millennium stone for the views, but beware of the drop down if you have children. We had a sensitive look around St Marys church ruins, fascinating and then finished off with a stop at The Dunvegan for takeaway cake/hot chocolate. All in all a lovely walk. It’s very muddy in places so wellies/walking boots are a must! We forgot midge spray! Which was an error on a warm day.

I found out about the Two Churches Walk on TripAdvisor, and my husband and I did it our first day in Dunvegan. There are not any great maps that I can find, but the basic map will give you what you need to know, other than that, follow the worn down areas. You will travel through the ruins of an old church/cemetery, up a steep hill to look at a 10,000 rock (more impressive than that sounds) with 360 degree views, through a sheep pasture (watch your step), through the moors, the forest, and back to a much more modern church. A beautiful hike.

Easy parking at start, easy walk up through trees - past the 'seats' (you've got to go to see them sorry!) get's a little bit up and down, then up onto the top and the view towards the south west (ish) is excellent. Follow the path by the fence, locate the gate and then go across the field and up to the monolith - 15 feet high (4.5 mtrs) and this is where the view really is. Hope you remembered to pack your sandwiches - sit there in the peace and quiet and just chill - it's worth it. Back down to the ruined church - loads of MacLeod chieftains here - which Dunvegan Castle don't seem to tell you about.
Cannot fault this - and it's free - what more could you want.

Beautiful walk after a nice dinner. There is so much to look at here. So many beautiful stones. Nature at its finest.

What a stunning walk! From the ruins of St Mary’s church on the Portree road out of Dunvegan, climb to the right and uphill through a gate. You can make a detour to the Duirinish standing stone if you like. You continue through a second gate descending into parkland where glimpses of Dunvegan castle should be possible. I missed it! Through the woods you eventually get to a fork where you branch left. Eventually you emerge from the woods to Duirinush Parish church, a striking white building, from where you keep left and eventually turn left to return to the parking.
It took around 50 minutes.

It's so great to take a short hike on the first day you are in a town, to get the feel of it. This one is well marked and not very long. It's a very peaceful hike and if you start at the church in town, you will end up at the Dunvegan marker and ruins of a church at the other side of town, with a short walk on sidewalks to return to first church. Highly recommend.

When you are in Skye, you need to walk. And this is a good one. It does not have the most amazing views or anything like that but it is very convenient, well marked, and extremely peaceful. The hour or so it takes is definitely worth it. I recommend heading in the direction of the woods first. That saves the views and ruin for the ending.

The old church is interesting and attractive. And free. The new standing stone has an interesting story. The full circle walk is not to difficult but might be skipped on a very rainy day.

On a recent stay in Dunvegan I got up early one morning and decided to do The Two Churches Walk. The walk starts at the Duirinish Church in Dunvegan, the white one on the right hand side of the road up to Dunvegan Castle. When I started off it was raining lightly, by the time I had went a couple of hundred yards it was chucking it down. I went back and sheltered for about 10-15 minutes by the tourist information place, when the rain eased off I went up to the end of the walk at the ruins of St.Mary's Church on the A850. After investigating the ruins and the grave yard for a while, I walked up the grassy path to the Duirinish Standing Stone, by the time I got up there the rain had gone off and the sun was shining. This stone was only erected here in the year 2000 and I believe it was found on a beach in the south of Skye. If you do the walk from start to finish, and the weather is in your favour, then this is the reward at the end of your trek, the view from here is magnificent. On my way back down it was raining stair rods again. If you know anything about Skye then you'll know that the weather can change on the flip of a coin, so always have some waterproofs with you.
