If you are visiting Skye, be sure to spend at least the better part of a day traveling the loop through the Trotternish Peninsula from Portree to Uig. The scenery is spectacular. You'll want to make several stops to take it all in. There's a lot to see: The Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, Flodigarry, Duntulm Castle, The Museum... More

Outstanding drive from Portree to Staffin....the views are incredible both of the ridge and out to sea. The weather changes quite quick so be prepared but the photo opportunities are numerous so keep cameras at the ready.

We spent a magical day touring the Trotternish Peninsula, and were lucky that the weather was absolutely gorgeous. I got some amazing photos that day, from the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, Quiraing, the Crofting Museum. We had a beautiful picnic with fabulous views at the Quiraing, and I only wished I had the entire day to spend hiking... More

This is a fascinating area for walking expeditions provided the weather is suitable. We recently spent a holiday week based in the Kilmaluag area of north-east Skye. This gave us the opportunity to explore various parts of the Trotternish peninsular and the Trotternish Ridge. It is all very lovely but, if time is short, I think The Quiraing and The... More

This is a stunningly beautiful area of Skye and I can't imagine having come to Scotland and missed it. The natural beauty is equal to Hawaii, New Zealand, and other unspoiled areas in the world that you know are unique to that area and something you will remember forever. The self guided driving tour around the peninsula listed in the... More

The start of this walk is on an isolated back road in the north of Skye, where there is a size able car park. Coaches stop here to allow tourists to take photographs from the immediate vicinity. However, a couple of hours walking rewards you with some dramatic views of the needle outcrops and the Table feature; a flat-topped peak... More

Do the loop from Portree with a quick hop over for a walk in the Quiraing. Grab a map that details all of the incredible stops along the way. This area is breathtaking! And this review is coming from someone who has been to all of the National Parks in the US! You will love it!

This is a driving tour with stops along the way to stretch your legs and take in easy to find views and is ever so pleasant. It's beautiful and makes a perfect day's itinerary. It was our favorite day of our weeks stay on Skye. The old Man of Storr ( a strenuous hike), Lealt Falls, Mealt falls and Kilt... More
