Oans

Perhaps it’s known as “Oans Point”, but the maps label the little rocky headland, below the fractured cliffs of Score Horan, as “Oans”. Whatever its name, the point marks a clear-cut objective for this short walk from Gillen, on Skye’s Waternish peninsula. The flora between Gillen and the forestry road down to the shore level is varied and beautiful at this time of year. The fauna? Gulls, gannets and a substantial flock of oystercatchers. There’s quite a tangle of rocks and pools at the point – a great spot to explore or just sit for a while.
