Fodor's Review

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.

Bella Jane. Take a boat trip on the Bella Jane toward Loch Coruisk, where you'll be able to see seals. The three-hour round-trip excursions, available April to October (and sometimes beyond), cost £24 per person. Elgol jetty, B8083, Elgol, Highland, IV49 9BJ. 01471/866244.
