An explorer's guide to the islands of Britain

Beinn Sgorabhaig is Scalpay’s high point at 104 metres. Great views across The Minch to Skye, the Shiant Isles and directly below to the characterful lighthouse.

The most direct route to climb the high point is from the car park at Ceann a’ Bhaigh. Follow the lighthouse track then divert off it to follow the faint path across the moorland to the summit.
