Elie Chainwalk

The Elie Chainwalk is one of Scotland’s best-kept coastal secrets. To call it a walk is not strictly accurate; it is more of a scramble, requiring a healthy spirit of adventure, a good measure of agility and a strong head for heights.

Combining climbing, crawling and clambering, there is nothing quite like it anywhere else in Britain. But solidly planted steel chains, perfectly placed footholds and sticky volcanic rock offer a comforting sense of security to those embarking upon this rough and ready challenge.
