Day 5 – Gearannin > Tarbert > Uig (Skye)

Todays riding is 100 km / 800  m elevation gain. Est riding time – 4:24 hrs.


It’s familiar ground today, as it’s retracing route back to Tarbert which you did on day 3. So it’s a chance to ease into some touring before up and over the 200m climb then down to the ferry.

Tarbert to Uig ferry there is a 4 pm crossing (or 11:50 am next day), journey time is 1.5 hrs.

I arrived at the Cowshed in Uig early evening, a little bit wet from the rain. Where I had my own dinner, hot shower, and then walked down the road to the Ferry inn pub for some great local ale and gin.
