Ullinish - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This point is marked on the Official Tourist Map of Skye and Lochalsh as a panoramic viewpoint. It was a little disappointing in reality, and probably only worth visiting if you intend to actually walk the 3km out to Ullinish Point itself, which would offer fantastic views across Loch Bracadale on a good day. Unfortunately there was not time to do this hike.
Ullinish - FURTHER INFORMATION
Ullinish - Skye visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Ullinish' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Highland.
Panorama from the panoramic viewpoint near to Ullinish on the Isle of Skye overlooking Ullinish Point, Loch Beag, Loch Bracadale and Loch Harport on the western coast of Skye. Ullinish is a very small settlement south of Dunvegan on the A863 and a typical example of a croft village where the principle economy is tenant farming (crofting), fishing and catering to passing tourism by offering bed and breakfast accommodation.
From the point where this panoramic photograph was taken it is a 3km walk to Ullinish Point, visible to the left of the pole in this picture. The prominent headland sticking out from the opposite side of Loch Harport is Ardtreck Point. To get there you must travel round Loch Harport and past the famous Talisker Distillery at Carbost. Talisker Distillery was established in 1830 and is the only distillery on Skye. Although there have been reckoned to be over 4000 whiskies produced in Scotland, connoisseurs acclaim only five whiskies as all time classics, including Talisker.
Travel and Getting There:
After passing along Loch Harport the A863 turns inland down Glen Drynoch and traverses Skye before joining the A87 at the point where the Glen Drynoch valley meets Glen Sligachan and Loch Sligachan. If you started the western loop of Skye at Portree, then this brings this trip to an end.
