Skye in February

Hi guys.  I am visiting Skye in February next year and want to go to Loch Coruisk as my brother wants his ashes scattered there.  I understand most people go by boat but the trips don't run in February.
My partner and I are your average middle-aged general walkers, thanks to our Staffie-cross Joey, and I wondered if it was realistic to try and walk there or should we wait and go back in April when the boat trips are running?

    Hi, I am not fully familiar with that area, but with it being February you would have to take the weather into consideration for walking in that kind of environment. It can change so quickly and it may not even be possible for you to start the journey.

    Hi @Hazel_Berry

    I personally would hold off until later in the year. The weather is so unpredictable and there may be snow on the ground too. That's not to say it will be perfect in April either but you may have a better chance getting across. 

    Taking the boat would certainly make the journey easier.
