 spacerGo past the Coire nan Arr which appeared in Wee Jock's Lament and over the Bealach na Ba (one of the highest roads in the UK) to Applecross. From here take the road to Toscaig at the bottom of the Applecross peninsula.
 spacerUags is three miles further down the peninsular but the walk is not recommended. Similar views of the Crowlin Islands (Lochdubh Island in the episode) can be had from the vicinity of Toscaig with a lot less effort.
 spacerOther views of the Crowlin Islands can be had from Frithard Road in Plockton and from the bottom of Skye - there is a good view from the Skye bridge looking towards them and Uags.
