History & heritage Outdoor adventure

A mountain, and mountain hares

You'll see the flat-topped Dun Caan from the ferry to Raasay; the climb is worth it for exceptional views of Skye. Drive along Calum's road, built by one man over ten years with nothing but a shovel, a pick, and a wheelbarrow. Keep an eye out for the wildlife: mountain hares, sea eagles and otters. If the mountain's covered in cloud, then head to Raasay House for other outdoor adventures like coasteering, kayaking, climbing and abseiling. And after all that exertion? Try the locally caught seafood - it's excellent.
