For those who can enjoy a could walk and a challenging climb, I really recommend the Old Man of Storr. The walk/climb up is already filled with amazing views over the Trotternish area and at the top it's even better! Parking is free and there is a bus stop as well. The ride to the start of the walk is... More

It's an interesting rock formation and there's not much else to do on Skye, so by all means climb up to it...

Took a stroll up to the old man of storr. Beautiful views at every turn. Steep in places but take it easy and you will be rewarded. Myself, my six month pregnant bump, partner and our dog managed it so I'd say most folk will, although probably too much for young kids.

You can park for free at the bottom of the hill and hike your way up along a decent path to the top of the hill where the Old Man of Storr is. The path is pretty good and leads to just below the Old Man of Storr where it then gets a bit more hilly. You can still get... More

We climbed up to see these rocks whilst on a trip to Skye recently. The cleared forestry may not appeal but the view is magnificent. The old man and the nearby rocks make an awesome natural stone circle. The path starts off in pretty good shape but nearer the top it is a bit hairy even when it is dry.... More

Yes, the cleared forestry has made the landscape round the start of the walk very devastated but the silver lining is - the walk is now ten times better again. And much drier underfoot.From the minute you set off, if it's clear, the views over to the mountains of Torridon and up to Assynt are out of this world. As... More

We drove by The Old Man of Storr on the way to the Quiraing. The scenery is other worldly and the drive is beautiful and a little wild with the single lane roads. You can see the Old Man from Portree but it's well the drive to go. Highly recommended.

quite dramatic on a cloud covered day. rocky hike, beatiful.. as everything else on the isle of sky. It's right up on the way from the north (around kilt rock) down to Portree. It's a great stop from the road or a nice rocky elevated hike up.
