Armadale to Elgol (Isle of Skye, A851) – MotoGoLoco Classics

3rd July 2015 by  in MotoGoLoco Classic Motorcycle Routes

Take the ferry from Mallaig over the sea to Skye.

Armadale to Elgol

Visit Grumpy George’s shop on the right as you come off the ferry and say hi to his parrots, then drive north up the A851 till you reach the A87. Turn left, then left again after two miles onto the B8083. Follow this challenging road all the way to the end at Elgol (Ealaghol). Park and take in the views south to the islands of Eigg (Eige), Rhum (Rùm), and Canna (Canaigh).

Grab a picnic and catch the boat across the bay, then walk up to Loch Coruisk (Coire Uisg) into the natural amphitheater of the Black Cuillin and marvel at the scale of the mountains.
