The Old Drovers' Path to Leitir Fura
From Kinloch, you can walk to the historic township of Leitir Fura.
The walk starts above the Kinloch Lodge and passes through beautiful forests of oak, hazel and birch trees. It offers stunning sea views over the Sound of Sleat and the picturesque village of Isleornsay.
Leitir Fura is an old, abandoned village of black houses on an old drovers’ route running from Kylerhea to Kinloch. The residents of Leitir Fura would use the drovers’ path to drive their cattle to Kylerhea and then face the daunting task of swimming their beasts across the Sound of Sleat to the mainland and on to market.
For hundreds of years, much of the island of Skye belonged to the chiefs of the Clan MacDonald, Lord of the Isles. Historical records, however, show Leitir Fura was the last known home of members of the Clan MacInnes from Morvern until the early 1800s.
