We parked at the top. I wouldn't say it was a "car park" but you could park your car there! We only got about 500m along the path when a small stream cut across and we didn't feel able to attempt to cross it as was slopey and slippery. Windy, wild and whacky!

Visited on a misty winter morning which made us feel like we were in some kind of film. Other worldly feeling...

It was so rainy and windy on the one day we were able to see the Quairing that we could barely get out of our car. It was a bit disappointing, but mostly because of the terrible weather.

The Quiraing ISN'T at Sleat but it IS on Skye. The setting? There is NOTHING like The Quiraing - NOTHING! Google it and see. It is magical. It will take your breath away.

The Quiraing is an amazing place with the most stunning views when you reach the top levels. There are various routes one can take, some more challenging than others. If you are not a competent hill walker, I would strongly suggest taking a guide. Some of the structures, like the Prison and the Table, are difficult to reach and without... More

This mountain range was one of the most stunning places I've ever been. It was incredibly windy in January not sure how the rest of the months are, but I suggest to bring a good jacket and hiking boots if you plan on getting out of the car and don't want to freeze or blow away.

One of the best walks we've ever had- so atmospheric. We walked late afternoon in autumn after all the day trippers had gone home and had the place to ourselves. IN our experience this is always the best way to see popular places- go early morning or later afternoon to avoid crowds and get the real atmosphere. We only had... More

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.
