TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Uig-( Bay in Gaelic) is a bustling harbour town in North Skye, the Gateway to the Western Isles. The tour begins on trails through the beautiful Uig Woods before climbing for a couple of kilometers to the world famous Fairy Glen. Legend says that there are 365 individual hills in this glen though we won’t have time to count them all. After exploring this enchanting landscape we’ll visit Castle Ewen-the Fairy Castle, with its standing stones and rock formations. The views from the top are breathtaking.

We then run past the port itself before climbing on trails again to Idrigill Point. With luck we will time it right to see one of the iconic Calmac Ferries coming or going. Idrigill Point is the high point of the run and the views across Skye and the Western Isles are unbeatable. We finish the run with three kilometers downhill taking in Rha Waterfall- a hidden gem off the beaten path. The pool here is fantastic for a dip if you’re brave enough!

Transport from Portree available upon request.

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No-Skye isn’t famous for its climate so I will run in all weathers, although if the weather is too bad I may suggest an alternative route.

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    Be prepared for all weather even in summer. The climate is generally mild but we do get some warm days with temperatures in the 20’s.
    If the weather is poor I recommend that you take a waterproof jacket along, it is often windy and the weather can change quickly.
    My runs are on a combination of roads and trails-some of which are quite rough. Make sure you are wearing good shoes - trail shoes are preferable.

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    No. Please bring your own water with you.

    HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
    No, I’ll run at your pace or you’ll run at mine if you’re quicker than me .It’s a tour, not a race.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer our private tours an optional hotel pick-up service. The hotel or apartment building should be on or close to the tour route. 
    Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment.

tip  BOOKING TIP:
BOOK EARLY - GIVE US SOME TIME
We recommend to book your running tour minimum 2-3 days before your preferred tour date. Especially during the different high seasons, when many guests like to join our runs.
That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
