Amazing scenery. Well worth the trip. Despite very poor weather the mist did not detract from the atmosphere of this place. There are great views if you can see them.

It's absolutely stunning when you reach the top of this thing! We were lucky enough to have sunshine when we reached the top and were met with beautiful grass, views of the entirety of Skye, sheep, silence, fresh water dripping and unbelievable views. Keep to a track as we hiked up a very steep rocky part to reach the top... More

Good walking at lower level even when the top is in cloud. Not too boggy. Not too many other people and mercifully relatively few midges for late June. Paths not marked and not always obvious.

Aside from the natural beauty of the region, hiking over the rock formations just delivers a more and more spectacular vistas. Being such a popular tourist destination however means it's close to impossible to get that "perfect" camera shot without a person in the frame.

Easy hike and plenty to explore. If you feel up to it hike to the needle and it's surrounding areas. It's steep but well worth the discovery

Amazing views and a great walk up to stacks. Well worth the effort to get up there as it is such an unusual place.

Amazing rock formations. Amazing to look at in sun or rain. Good walks around the area, or just drive and admire!

We hiked the Quiraing on a very windy day which, added to the stunning views, made this trip that much more exhilarating. I would recommend hiking here for everyone. While the trails are very narrow at times and there are a couple tricky crossings, it is not overly challenging and the scenery is unbeatable.

We drove to Quiraing after visiting Kilt Rock and the scenery was just simply amazing. Most or all of the road is a one lane with lay-bys for oncoming vehicles to pass. We got out to walk at a small parking lot about half way along the road, up on the Quiraing, the views were awesome. If you are going... More

Spectacular. Not to be missed. This is scenery like no other I've seen! You really don't have to go far to be awestruck.
