Walk Created to View Eilean Glas Lighthouse & Beautiful Scenery

The Isle of Scalpay is located to the east of Tarbert, Isle of Harris and is accessed by a single span bridge. Scalpay has one of the earliest lighthouses in Scotland - come and enjoy a walk across the moorland to see it, taking in the views of the scenic coast and looking out for marine life along the way. The island has previously relied on fishing for its existence and there is still an active fleet of small boats there. Please pick up the route information from the new Scalpay Community Shop Café which is due to open in early April 2012.

Come and walk to Eilean Glas Lighthouse, see 'Bonnie Prince Charlie's cave' and call in for refreshments. This general store will be open Mondays to Saturdays. Scalpay has a unique, warm and welcoming, timeless atmosphere, so please come and share it with us!

For further information about the Eilean Glas Lighthouse and the Scalpay shop, please have a look at these websites:
