FATMAP difficulty grade
The Hebridean Way is a long and challenging route that shouldn’t be attempted by inexperienced walkers, this being said it's also incredibly rewarding as you'll get to experience the rugged natural beauty that few other tourists get to see. The route starts in the south-west part of the country, and finishes in the far north-east.
Although you can walk the route in either direction, most people walk the path in a clockwise direction.
The route is almost entirely on public footpaths and trails, meaning you shouldn’t have any trouble finding your way.
The only exception is when you cross the two ferries that are used for transportation between the islands.
The ferries only operate during the summer months, so keep that in mind when planning your trip.
