10 minute drive from B&B. Best enjoyed early morning before crowds descend. Why did they remove the trees in 2012?

Great views and not a difficult walk from the car park. I wish we had taken our picnic to near the top. It was sheltered and would have been a wonderful location. Next time.

Picturesque and beautiful! Way too many photos of the exact same mountain, but that is because the area is truly remarkable.

The day we saw The Old Man of Storr the swirling fog created an otherworldly, enchanting scene. It was hard to remember this was 2015 and not some primitive time. Absolutely loved it.

Th weather on the Isle of Skye can be very changeable,even in the summer months and none too warm either.Take wooley jumper,pull over and anorak,gets windy near the Old Man of Storr. Nice waterfall with water falling out to sea. Good view of some of the Skye rugged coastline.

We hiked up to The Old Man of Storr early yesterday morning and the views were absolutely breathtaking. Make sure you wrap up warm and take a camera with you.

We started the walk as the summit was into the cloud with no big expectation of seeing something at the top. But as it often the case in Scotland, even if there was cloud at the summing, it cleared few minutes after our arrival and we were able to see the fantastic view all around old man of storr. Too...

The walk up close to the storr is not much difficult but you need some energy to reach. Excellent views, the light passing clouds over the geological formations gives a nice pinch to the views. You can enjoy the views if it's not a wet and rainy.

Breathtaking and well worth the journey. We did some walking here and it was amazingly beautiful. If you love Scotland you will love the area around the Old Man of Storr. Take the journey, take your walking shoes and you will love it.
