Description

This ride begins at a small parking area on the B8083 road west of the hamlet of Kilmarie. The ride starts near sea level and climbs over the Am Mam Pass at 620 ft.

The first half mile is a peaceful ride through the a sheep pasture with the climb up the pass looming in front of you. You'll pass a small creek and then the steep, rocky climb begins. You'll climb 450 feet in a little over a half mile on, at times, loose rocks. Needless to say, it is a difficult climb, so kudos if you don't end up walking a portion of the way.

At the pass, a magnificent view of the Cuillin Mountains opens up. Loch na Creitheach lies in the valley below which drains into the Atlantic Ocean. A rowdy descent on, at times, loose rocks takes you quickly to sea level where there is a small secluded beach. You can do some rock surfing on the way down, but you are a long way from help.

There's a derelict cabin at the bottom along with the more modern Camasumary Lodge. You can't miss the Glen Sligachan trail as directions are painted on the side of the derelict cabin.
