I took the bus tour to Quiraing and the view is fantastic. Every photo I took can be a wallpaper. With the fresh air and the keen view of the mountain and grass, even a simple car driving by looks like a car commercial on TV. The experience is refreshing and peaceful, worth a trip.

Good views... drive to the place is full of beautiful views. You need to find parking and get your hiking boots on. We couldn't do that as we were short on time so enjoyed the views of mountains from roadside and moved on.

We bought the makings of a picnic at the local co-op, and then drove up the parking lot in the Quiraing and hiked to one of the most beautiful picnic spots I've ever been to! Such a wonderful memory. If you have more time, it looked like the hikes would be amazing!

If you visit Skye you have to go up over the Quiraing. The views are phenominal, it's well worth taking a backpack and walking the paths or doing the full backpack walk over the Island. On this last trip I was travelling with my Mum who couldn't manage the rough terrain so we got Ali from Gus's Taxis in Portree... More

Great road to drive up and down from the Staffin side, once at the top the views are amazing, well worth the trip up, not for the faint hearted if scared of heights though!

Stunning views and a relatively easy walk. Takes 2 hours to reach the peak and about another 2 to get down (so 4 round trip). There's a nice parking lot there with a number of spots so no need to park in the bogs like a lot of people seemed to think was necessary. Would highly recommend this to anyone... More

Right from the start, this walk, which is not very arduous, delivers on breathtaking scenery. Don't miss it, you will remember it for a long time.

Title of review says it all really. Get there early before the van loads of people arrive and spoil the silence. Otherwise it is simply gorgeous.

This is a lovely walk with only a few slightly challenging parts. The only interpretation is at the start and there is nothing thereafter. The views are well worth the effort. You should take some water with you as it is quite a long walk. To get the best of it you will need to walk up some of the... More

I had a short visit here as part of a small group tour and wish we'd had more time! The scenery is amazing, the best I experienced while in Skye. We did a short, pretty easy hike but there are more challenging ones as well. My mom is a fit 67 years old and she managed the easy hike just... More
