Route Outline

This walk, and a shorter part of it, is also described on the rather excellent website Walk Highlands which, had we found it before we went to Harris, would have made at least one of our walks in the Hebrides a lot less shambolic. There are two areas to park near the south of Lochanan Lascadail near Urgha which is on the road from Tarbert to Scalpay. The furthest east, just past the bridge over the stream between the north and south Laxadale Lochs is at the start of the well defined path signposted to Reinigeadal.
