One of the most beautiful, majestic and breathtaking places I have ever been to! We have been here several times and its brilliance never ceases to amaze us. A must if you're on Skye.

Breathtaking view indeed. The walk is more than an hour. We did not make it to the top as we have a little one. Beautiful view.

Breathless views of mountains, valleys and bodies of water create the 2nd best day walk I've ever been on behind only New Zealand's Tongariro Pass. We were fortunate to have relatively good weather for the hike too.

We took a local's advice to come to Quiraing with the recommendation that the landscape was stunning, the best on Skye and she spoke the truth. From the parking lot, allow several hours with snacks and water to reach the 'tabletop' to the north. The trail is fairly well packed so footwear should not be a concern, but strong winds... More

The hike from the parking lot to the top of the Quiraing and back is not difficult but you should allow 3-4 hours or more depending on your pace. Bring water and food with you. Easy gradual inclines, a couple of streams to cross, a few steeper areas with loose rocks, but overall very doable. Lots of side trails that... More

The road from Uig is fantastic, cutting across the moor before you reach the amazing view around two-thirds of the way across of the ridge. Well worth a trip, and I'm sure would be a fantastic area to explore further on foot.

we went for a walk on the Quirang in November and were delighted with both the walk and the views. It's a truly stunningly beautiful place

With friend from Australia we took on the Quiraing which was just spectacular. Beautiful in every aspect. Some of the most scenic country side that you can imagine. Well worth the journey and the time and effort to make this walk. This is some of Scotland's most wonderful countryside. Do not forget to take your camera !!

This place is a must see in isle of skye- never seen a more beautiful landscape in my life. It is magical and the photos turned out great. It is very very windy too- the wind 'pushed' me a fair bit, more than a few times- so must be careful when trekking up , esp through the narrower paths (... More

If you can deal with the drive up the goat path that they call the Staffin - Uig road you'll really enjoy walking the features of the Quirang. The land-slips here are amazing and almost other-worldly. A very photogenic area as can be seen from all the pix on the internet. A definite must-see!
