We came here on recommendations from others. Parked across the street - there is very limited parking. There is a small sign for the start. You walk all the way down this road until the end where you will see a gate. Open and close...More

This was recommended to me, and I just wanted to comment that we could not find the parking location for this, it was not well marked. In the end, we gave up for the sake of time, but I wish we had gone.

Great short walk with the reward of majestic views North and South and across to the mainland. Good path most of the route but a little boggy in one section.

We had a great day out at Brothers Point. We weren’t sure what to expect. The walk was fairly easy at the start and a bit challenging on the second part but definitely well worth the effort. Walking boots advisable. Beautiful views of Kilt Rock...More
