A good walk is to a viewpoint for the Corryvreckan Whirlpool. From the northern end of the public road (allow five to six hours for the 16-mile return trip from here) hike past Barnhill to Kinuachdrachd Farm (6 miles). Just before the farm a footpath forks left and climbs before traversing rough and boggy ground, a natural grandstand for viewing the turbulent waters of the Gulf of Corryvreckan.

If you have timed it right (check tide times at the Jura Hotel), you will see the whirlpool as a writhing mass of white water.
