"Ralph Storer's book 50 Best Routes on Skye and Raasay gives details of walks in
both directions. Brother's Point to the North and Eaglais Bhreuach to the South."
ALSO Note that there is a large, popular layby and picnic spot on the A855 where people park to walk the short path to the Invertote viewpoint (below). It's a routine stop for Rabbie's, other frequent tour buses and hundreds of camper vans and cars. If tourism is important to Skye, this is certainly worthy of protection from visual monstrosities.
