Route Description

From the start at Ramasaig the route appears to follow a good track to the Lorgill river.

OS Landranger 23
 

Heritage Information

The ruined building marked at NG 168 436 can also be seen on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Inverness-shire, Isle of Skye 1879, sheet xxvi) and is labelled as a 'School (Boys & Girls)'. Lorgill was cleared in the 1800s, and today only one farm remains at Ramasaig, but this ruin stands testament to the needs of the once thriving settlements in this area and to the historic use of this path.
