The start of the walk to Waternish Point can be accessed by walking or driving to Trumpan. Cars should be parked at the car park opposite Trumpan Church. There is a viewpoint here showing directions to the highpoints seen from here, particularly the Western Isles. Walking back a few hundred metres go through the gate to the left where the road takes a sharp right turn. The track is marked clearly though at times parts can be pretty boggy especially after wet weather. House.
The return route to this point is about 8 miles (13km). Continuing on to the lighthouse is a further 2 miles (3km). The walk should take around 4 hours in total with outstanding views across the Minch to the Western Isles.
