The B8083 leads from Broadford to one of the finest views in Scotland. This road passes through Strath Suardal and little Loch Cill Chriosd (Kilchrist) by a ruined church. You can appreciate breathtaking views of the mountain called Bla Bheinn as the A881 continues to Elgol, a gathering of crofts along this road that descends to a pier. Admire the heart-stopping profile of the Cuillin peaks from the shore, or, at a point about halfway down the hill,
you can find the path that goes toward them across the rough grasslands.
