When we first got here we didn't expect the length of the hike, so be aware and bring water and hiking boots with you and maybe some snacks. It's worth it because the views are amazing. You can also be here the whole day and actually hike around the entire mountain but not necessary to see the Old Man of... More

My kids and I hiked up the easier path and loved it. It was and unseasonable 80F outside and sunny that day, but snow drifted down on us because it was blowing down from the peaks. By the time we got back to the car lot, temps had dropped 20 degrees. We felt like we had experienced 4 different seasons... More

that's it, you walk along the road after passing through Portree, and at some point, you see. he is the Hold Man of Storr. heaven suddenly. See him dominate over the valley, surrounded by beautiful landscapes, where his feet you can see everything more. Scotland is beautiful throughout, but here I've got left really the heart. Beautiful !!!

I didn't think we would be able to make to the old man of storr. I was visiting with my 2yr old and 6yr old kids and my over 60s parents. My partner had our 2 yr old in a baby carrier. The beginning of the hike is over a man made gravel pathway which can be quite tiring. Once... More

Very cool rock formations that were cut by glaciers, I believe. The star of the show is "The Old Man Of Storr" a huge rock that looms off the edge of the Storr. A few tips: -Easy to find...you see will the Storr formation approaching in the distance, long before you get to the car park. -Go Early! The car... More

A must do if visiting the Isle of Skye! I took an early walk up here with my dog, it's a bit steep in places but fairly easy going and I think with in most people's capabilities. It took me about an hour, but I did keep stopping to take photos. It was cloudy on the way up, but the... More

Been there during my road trip to scotland. You can experience natural beauty while trekking up the hill. Overall scotland itself was beautiful and some of the attractions like this made me feel being in heaven. Plan ur road trips in summer so u can enjoy it to maximum with better road connectivity.

Some comment that this isn't worth it, but it is - this hike is all about the views from the top which you can't get at the bottom of the hill. You can see out over mountains, lochs and towards the islands of Rona and Raasay. It's a wee bit steep at some points but we stopped for photos quite... More

We were blessed with nice clear weather this December. The views were spectacular and just got better and better the more we walked on. It was an easy walk and with plenty to look at. We practically had the place to ourselves which made it even better. A must see! Iconic!

This walk is now so popular that most of the trail is marked out by a path. It's quite steep at some points but we were always stopping to take photos. It takes about an hour to get to the top and when it's a clear day you can get some amazing views.
