Weather was very mild on the day of visit , so made the most of walk. Long walk though , but worth making it right upto the top , the view was amazing . Bit of a struggle if you got small kids , but the walk and the view are quite enjoyable .

If you don't know what you're looking for, or if it's really cloudy, it's easy to miss. The weather was terrible when we were there, so we didn't get to walk around it. But it is really cool to see!

We walked to the Old Man in thick snow, and horizontal winds. It was worth it, the views were incredible and a thoroughly enjoyable walk.

My son and I decided we'd climb to the top as it seemes quite easy to do so...that was before I stopped to regain my breath (totally out of shape!). My son went on and he was marvelled! Even when I didn't continue the climb, I just went on taking pictures. Windy and all, it is a lovely experience, probably... More

We enjoyed a lovely walk here, and the beautiful views but were watching the time as we had a ferry to Mallaig later in the afternoon. It would be great to stay on the Isle for a few days as there are so many more beautiful places to see such as Neist Point lighthouse and Quiraing View. By the time... More

A undeniably wonderful geological spot with atmosphere to boot. The walk up can be challenging -STAY ON THE PATHS! there are several approach paths to choose from and these are the only safe way up- we watched some stupid tourists taking scree shortcuts and getting stuck and having to be rescued- don't chance it! If you want to go off... More

Very atmospheric when done in winter with snow sleet and Gail force winds. It's even better if you've got the right gear to spend time exploring the whole area and take in the sunset in winter.

If you are up for some hiking put your boots on and go to this place. There are parking places at the bottom of the hill, although I don't know if it it's big enough to host the summer tourists. We had a great time there + amazing weather. I'm sure it's a bit more challenging with rainy weather. We... More

Now they have removed the trees the poor Old Man is exposed in all his nakedness! But it's a great walk up and the views are superb
