The Sanaigmore Cliffs can be seen from many parts of Islay and climbing one of them was always on my “To Do List”. As the weather was amazing today, blue skies, nice temperatures and a light northerly breeze, we decided it was ideal for a walk. So we went to go Sanaigmore and this time not to walk on the beautiful beach but to climb one of the impressive Sanaigmore cliffs. The walk up there is pretty straight forward. You basically follow the impressive shoreline to the west until you reach a beautiful and very secluded beach. There you’ll head back south to round the bay and then back west straight up the cliff. We did the second one from the right, which is 98 metres above sea level. The views from up there are quite stunning and you can see from Mull and Colonsay on a clear day and much of the northern part of Islay. The entire walk, from Sanaigmore to the top of the cliff and back, was not more than two hours. This time of year walking is rather good as the bracken is still very small, this will change when summer progresses. Next time we’ll go further south and do some of the other Sanaigmore cliffs.
