Stunning walk. Referred to http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/skye/quiraing.shtml and it took us 3 hours to do the circuit.

I guess this will always be my favourite in Skye. Unfortunately the weather made it impossible to go all the way but still the views are amazing and it's a truly unique place. Also the road leading up to the car park offers great views.

Drove down the tiny road as all the directions indicated. Being used to duel carriageways this was terrifying and we couldn't find anywhere safe to park in the designated on road (in ditch) parking where all the guide books say to leave the car. Carried on down the very steep road (we travelled from Uig) disappointed that we couldn't stop... More

Top of my bucket list to do and we nailed the walk - 7kms - wild, rugged and wonderful. Pay attention to the weather, make sure you have the right shoes and water proofs & a map - always be prepared. The views are absolutely stunning, go inside and explore The Table Rock and the interior. Best day of the... More

see detailed route description on http://www.isleofskye.com/skye-guide/top-ten-skye-walks/the-quiraing. the only problematic part for us was from the summit to the wire fence you pretty much loose the path, but the direction is pretty obvious. You are sure to tread in muddy swampy ground though... The views are spectacular, the walk is LESS challenging than the description might suggest, a fun walk overall.... More

It is an incredible vista which is almost spiritual in its vastness and the different textures in the landscape.
