There is a car park at the Bernera Community Centre and Museum and the route initially takes you on the minor road along the side of the car park where a sign indicates the start of this walk. The first mile follows this road/track and is easy walking. When the track gets onto open country it can be a little more difficult, but there are plenty of helpful waymarker posts, although they can be hard to spot against the rocks and vegetation – particularly at the points where the route turns inland – and we certainly missed a few. The section from Tobson to Bostadh is trickier and the waymarkers are few and far between.

The route comes down to Bostadh beach beside the reconstructed iron-age house.  We resisted the opportunity to dip our toes in the sea as there was plenty of the wet stuff coming from the sky by this point. The return route was about three miles along the minor road to Breacleit. The road was very quiet; only two cars passed us as we were walking.

We enjoyed this walk very much, despite the weather closing in for the last half and the landscape is impressive with some fabulous views; well worth the effort. Definitely a waterproof boots walk (very boggy in sections) and be prepared for the weather to change suddenly.
