I have had to pospone walking The Skye Trail, but I’m still planning on doing it. I’ll set off as soon as possible after the lock down has ended. I will be following the route description in Cicerone’s Skye Trail guide. I won’t be carrying the Cicerone guide with me, to save weight. I’ll be carrying the Harvey Skye Trail map, which also shows alternative routes that it’s possible to take. Reasons for postponing this walk to 2021.

The Skye Trail walk is an unofficial route for experienced hikers, often over pathless terrain. The route passes beneath the Cuillin ridge and over the Trotternish Ridge. Traveling through some of the most stunning scenery on the Isle of Skye.

The plan

I will be wild camping every night (as always) in my new Lightwave S10 Sigma tent. You can read my initial review of this tent here. The Skye Trail walk will allow me to thoroughly test the tent.
