Geo-Trips :: Exploring Gleann Chliostair

North Harris

A walk from Loch Leosaid, Sat, 29 May 2004 by Nigel Brown

Exploring a good path up a glen which cuts through the superb hills of North Harris. If we'd have gone further we'd have reached the renowned overhanging cliff of Sròn Uladail, and the wilderness country north of there, but time was not on our side. But still a very enjoyable walk in a place which has an atmosphere all of its own.
