Quiraing is a famous part of the beautiful Skye landscape and one of my favourite places there. Viewed close up or from Trotternish ridge opposite, it is an awesome sight which changes every few moments, depending on the light and cloud.

Wow! We were prepared for any weather which is the norm in Scotland. And we got it all. It started out overcast, rained and then beautiful sun. No matter what the condition the scenery is breathtaking. The rain gave it all an eerie wonder. It took us about 3 hours to hike with lots of stops and lunch. Probably a... More

Great walk, greater surrounding, the greatest views. First glance from this place is what I will remember for a lifetime. Not many parking places but you can squeeze car along the road as others.

We were only able to drive by because of the baby sleeping, and some in our group with trouble walking, but easily some of the best landscapes I have ever seen! The best descriptive word I have heard for it is "dramatic" and that's exactly what it is, you won't be disappointed.

A great walk up. Get to see lots of sheep along the way. The view from the needle and the prison is just incredible!

OMG!!! The view at Quiriang is just amazing! I wasn't quite sure how to get up there, but decided to follow a car that was ahead of mine and what a right decision it was! Along the narrow road up the view was already amazing. Up at the parking area, it was just breathe taking. If you are up for... More

We did a circuit via summit with a detour to Sron Vourlinn. This was definitely the best hike of our trip to Scotland. The vistas are just spectacular, you quickly get from parking place to completly different world. We did this hike on a cloudy day in the early September. Sturdy boots and good waterproofs were a must as the... More
