Talisker Bay Trail
The Talisker Bay Trail makes for a relaxing family adventure! Nothing beats the swirl of sea-scented air and an image of soft waves lapping onto the shore while a sea stack and a grassy cliffside create a pretty backdrop. So bring a picnic and aim to go when the tide is low!

Route Description for Talisker Bay Trail
The Talisker Bay Trail leads to a magical sandy bay on the Isle of Skye. We highly recommend packing a picnic and heading here during sunset. A bleeding orange and purple sky elevated by soft waves, a sea stack, a grassy cliff? Yes, please! Thankfully, it is pretty easy to get here as well!
For parking, you'll want to head to the end of the road to Talisker (not the distillery). Don't block the road or turning areas—take care when you park. After, you'll see a sign indicating 'To the bay.' Follow this, passing the Talisker House, harking to the 1720s. Continue following the path until you reach the south end of the ever-so-enchanting Talisker Bay!
Spend quite some time here before turning around and retracing your steps back to your car.
