This is one of the visual highlights on Skye. There are many different ways to view and appreciate it. We climbed up from the car park by Loch Leathan one day although were eventually defeated by the rain. The hike was wonderfully isolated. On another we drove on the road from Uig that goes over the ridge. There is a... More

This has some just great scenery, Quiraing, Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and more. If you have the time, take some hiking trails but research them before you go as some are more difficult than others.

The view and scenery are just too magnificent! It's great if you have more time in Skye, but if you don't, at least spend a day to drive through, and you will have a great lifetime experience.

Plan to get out of your car and walk around. The views are spectacular and you'll want to take them in by being outside of your car. If you can only fit in a drive, you still wouldn't be disappointed. The scenery is like nothing else. But trust me, you'll be glad you planned for 2 days up in the... More

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

We were staying in accommodation in valtos, on the trotternish peninsula so got to see a fair bit of it. Plenty of scenic walks and stop off points, cafes etc along the way

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
