The Skye Trail covers 128 km of tough terrain including spectacular mountain and coastal scenery on the Isle of Skye. It follows much of the celebrated Trotternish Ridge and also passes under the very shadow of the jagged Cuillin, the finest mountains in Britain. There are remarkable but almost unvisited coastal cliffs, steep trails above high drops, and the haunting ruins of deserted villages destroyed in the Highland Clearances.

I just finished hiking the whole Skye Trail and since I'm here for a few more days I thought I'll give the FKT a go! Plan is to start at the North in the morning (9/15). Looking to establish a Male's Unsupported Time. You can follow along on my Instagram hunter_leininger
