If you don't like walking - stop reading now. While you can see this from afar you really need to park your car in the designated parking area and walk up to the rock. It is so amazing when you get there. Also, don't make the mistake I made and take trainers. Do yourself a favour and buy a pair... More

If you are lucky enough to be in Skye on a clear day, then walk to the top is highly recommended. It's a clearly marked path -although a bit steep a times- it takes about an hour to reach to the rocks at the top. The view is magnificent while climbing and also when you get to the top you... More

Driving from Portree north you soon see Storr and Old Man on the left. Old Man is a attraction by itself and you can do short (15-20min) steep walk to get to close to this beautiful rock formation. All tourists stop here, so avoid midday hours in summer, as it will be even hard to park your car. If you... More

Another amazing spot to visit on this wonderful Scottish Island. Best avoided in the tourist season unless you get up at dawn otherwise you will just be one more of the lemmings treading these footpaths. However out of season with a wild sky as a backdrop there is no better place to walk and take photos. If you do go... More

A must see. Like anyone needs to be reminded. There are some great trails to stop and take to get some great photos. The whole island is a wonder.

Awesome nature, stunning views. The route is pretty long, but the view is out of this world. Cliffs and sights are like in Lord Of The Rings movies. Memories for the rest of the life.

We were fortunate enough to be blessed with exceptional weather on a three night stay in Skye. Sun was shining and virtually no wind so fantastic opportunity for exploring and taking in this stunning landscape. Can imagine it would be considerably more difficult in inclement weather.
