One of the most beautiful place to see in Scotland. Two to three hours of hiking. Make sure to bring your camera, water, and snacks.

A great walk with stunning views. Paths generally good but be careful on climb up to the Table as loose stones can be dangerous.

We spent 8 days in Scotland recently and this was my favorite place. We went with a small tour in a van with 6 other people. After seeing the long, winding drive to Quiraing, we were glad we didn't drive ourselves. You stand on a plateau area and have a 360 degree view of an incredible landscape of mountains, hills,...

This was a beautiful drive over the end of the Trotternish Peninsula, with great views all the way of interesting rock formations and the water.

Visited here years ago, and it rained, and rained and rained. So when we visited Skye again this year, we vowed to go back, and very glad we did! Glorious sunshine and the views are out of this world. We walked up over the top, the views are amazing, though watch when standing near the edge, its a long way... More

Understand why this is no.1 attraction in Skye. Amazing scenery straight out of Lord of the Rings. We did a 2 hr walk in and back and hardly met a soul. Mixed weather meant incredible photos. We went back again today!

The view from just by the car park was used in the film Stardust and the views just get better as you walk. It really is ike no other place I've ever seen. We headed around the side of the Quirang before heading up over the top and the total walk took a couple of hours although there is some... More
