Thread: Coruisk, Loch

    Default Coruisk, Loch

    Loch Coruisk is in the heart of the Black Cuillin on the Isle of Skye

  2. Default

    Access easiest from Elgol which lies about 6km (direct) or 7km (indirect hugging coastline) across Loch Scavaig to the point where the short river drains Loch Coruisk into Loch Scavaig. A 400m portage with gentle incline takes you to Loch Coruisk itself and here about 5-6km of paddling in some of the most dramatic rock scenery in Britain can be enjoyed.

    The loch is more sheltered than the crossing of Loch Scavaig, but still potentially a windy place given all the steep rock around which may results in downdrafts or funneling of wind.

    Terns seem to use one of the islands in particular as a base in breeding season.

    An amazing place to enjoy a mix of freshwater, seawater and mountain scenery, but one to be particularly cautious on too.
