Loch Coruisk on the Isle of Skye.

Start. Elgol.

Notes. Some may say this is cheating but it must be far the best way into the heart of the mighty Cuillin, take the Bella Jane from Elgol, explore Loch Coruisk, soak up the atmosphere, catch the Bella Jane back. If you visit Skye and find the need to relax, give it a go. it will make your visit well worth while, for walkers and none walkers alike.
