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

Such a beautiful place, definitely worth a visit! The start of the walk is very easy to find. It's easy to park you car near by, The walk itself is a challenge, but it's a beautiful one. You are surrounded by Lord or The rings looking nature. You need to cross small waterfalls and climb over rocks, but the view... More

We were only on Skye for a few days and drove through the Quiraing. It was amazing! The mountains were fantastic to see and we will be going back to go for some hikes along the routes next time we are in Skye. It is worth going to and driving along the road to just stop and admire the views... More

Brilliant views over the Trotternish peninsular. Good path directly opposite the car park at the top of the ascent from Staffin on the Uig road. Stunning rock formations all along the walk.

Great hiking tour! We did it clockwise, which seemed a smarter choice as you scramble uphill at the beginning of the tour while you are still fresh. Anyway both ways it's a nice hike for which you should plan 3 to 4 hours (or more if you tend to take a lot of photos - the scenery is just magnificent)!

You cannot miss this breathtaking sight! A great walk up and the views get better and better! It's incredibly windy so be sure 1)not to bring your umbrella because it's will break and 2)wear rain protection because you never know when it might start raining :-) It's a bit of a walk and an incline so wear appropriate shoes/boots. Since... More
