    pedestrians Back to Search Route Description From end of public road at Fearns follow a broad grassy track properly made as the main access to the former settlement at Hallaig with retaining walls both above and below the track as needed Apart from two minor landslips the route is in excellent condition until the south side of the abandoned township Views are of unsurpassed quality to Kyle and Applecross From the memorial cairn to Sorley MacLean at NG 597 382 especially fine views encompass Dun Caan and the north of the island Passing a former stable block the path deteriorates and one must find one s way as best as possible through the remains of Hallaig after traversing scrubby birch wood We have been informed that following the route between Hallaig and Screapadal is very difficult However reaching Screapadal from Brochel is more straightforward so if in any doubt visiting the townships on two separate walks is an option We would be very grateful to receive further survey infomation OS Landranger 24 Raasay Applecross Loch Torridon Heritage Information This track passes a number of townships such as Hallaig at 590 385 and South Screapadal and North Screapadal at 582 442

    ref 545 173 by a track across the Strathaird peninsula From Camasunary the direct route to Sligachan goes N by the path up Srath na Creitheach over the pass at only 85m at Lochan Dubha and down Glen Sligachan on the east side of the river to reach the hotel A much more interesting and scenic route goes W from Camasunary for 700 metres across the machair to the Abhainn Camas Fhionnairigh There is no bridge and the crossing will be difficult maybe impossible if the river is full or the tide is high Once across this stream continue along the path below the steep southern perimeter of Sgurr na Stri and round the Rubha Ban to Loch nan Leachd an inner pool of Loch Scavaig On a fine day the views across the loch to the Cuillin are magnificent The Bad Step is reached where the path approaches a slabby rock buttress dropping sheer into Loch Scavaig The only difficult part is where one has to scramble up a narrow ledge across a slab directly above the sea There is an easier alternative at a higher level which is reached by a well marked scramble Beyond the Bad Step there are no difficulties the path drops to sea level and crosses a little promontory to reach the outflow of Loch Coruisk The continuation to Sligachan does not cross the River Scavaig but goes NE up a rough path and slabs past Loch a Choire Riabhaich and over the Druim Hain ridge at about 310m Beyond there descend for about 21 2km by a path to join the main route between Camasunary and Sligachan near Lochan Dubha From Sligachan Hotel follow the A863 road towards Drynoch for 700 metres then go SW along the private road to Alltdearg House Continue

    part However the north section is part of a Ministry of Defence firing range so access is restricted from time to time Red flags will appear at path ends and red lights will flash when in use notices are also placed in local settlements Heritage Information The great road engineer William Bald 1789 1857 surveyed South Uist in 1805 the resultant plan showed this road as the main route through the island On Bald s map the route stops just short of Loch Bee as it approaches from the south and then reappears at Cill Amhlaidh but other than that missing section the old road is shown entirely in fact it is drawn as continuing south to Kilbride just east of Pollachar However later that century the Ordnance Survey surveyed South Uist and noted the current road as being more important than the old road of Bald s map It is likely then that the 19th century saw the transition from this old track being the main road to the spinal road that is currently used There are plans to reinvigorate this old route Although well loved by those in the know there is now the prospect of South Uist
