Route Description

The way across the Morsgail Forest is difficult, owing to it lying over peatbog. However white painted standing stones about 100 yards apart indicate the route off the OS mapped path, and lead you to within clear sight of Loch Resort.

OS Landranger 13 (West Lewis & North Harris) or 14 (Tarbert & Loch Seaforth)

Heritage Information

Ceann Loch Reasort (Kinlochresort) was deserted in about 1965, it lies on the border of Lewis and Harris at the head of a long sea loch miles from any roads. A route to the settlement can be seen on the 1899 and 1964 editions of the OS 6" maps.

With thanks to Peter Clarke's Timeless Way (2006), which gives a thorough telling of the challenges of this route.
