Quite a walk, but all worth it!

This Old Man here had us walking up its side for a good 1.5hrs. We went only 3/4 way up. Just high enough to be able to get good shots of it. You can see it from afar but you will... read more

This Old Man here had us walking up its side for a good 1.5hrs. We went only 3/4 way up. Just high enough to be able to get good shots of it. You can see it from afar but you will only get good shots once you cross a gate. Afterwards its a steep climb through rocks and uneven slopes.... More

I did not expect the terrain or ascension of the walk to the top. If I had I would have been wearing appropriate clothes and footwear (not denim shorts and pumps with no socks!). The walk could be challenging in places if not used to this kind of activity. It was also quite boggy, especially before the steep section (queue... More

Great view from the top of it - perfect place for tent... Or to play golf :) And it's not so hard to reach :)

This iconic prehistoric structure is well worth the effort to get to. The views are jawdropping and the rock formations look otherworldly. The short but steep trek up is well worth the effort and a bit of a lungstretcher if you are not used to a good bit of walking .

Old Man of Storr worths the value even if the sun is not shining. The views are very nice, and it takes only around half an hour to get to the platform.

If you drive from anywhere towards Old Man of Storr you will get different views of the place. As you keep getting closer there are a lot of allocated parking spaces to get down and click pictures. You can then park and start hiking up. On a sunny (we were lucky it was sunny), the views are just magnificent.

Worth the visit if you are a hiker. If not, be warned! I wasn't aware how intense the journey up would be, and it is certainly a challenge.

My wife and I walked up to the famous rocks and then carried on and climbed to the top and around. It was a great walk of about 4 hours that I can highly recommend. I would suggest wearing suitable walking attire if you are doing the whole walk. It can get very windy. Otherwise there were many other tourists... More
