Astounding views hit you on any walk along the ridge - I especially like Meall na Suiramach above the crowds walking the lower contour path at the Quiraing. It's only an hour to the top from the car park for stunning views.Or had the other...More
Having chickened out of walking the Quiraing at the first gully, I headed up the hill on the other side of the road. So glad I did, the views are absolutely panoramic in all directions and it's a simple walk up a grassy hill, with...More
This walk is incredible. We were lucky to have blue sky’s and endless views. The walk was tough with a lot of up down, up down, but it was worth it since you could see where you had walked and the views were breathtaking.
Trotternish ridge holds the most beautiful part of Skye. Quirang, the Old Man of Storr, several waterfalls are located there. Stunning views and exciting roads.
I got to spend my birthday in Skye this summer. It was a sunny day, what more to ask for?...More
This is the northernmost ridge of the Isle of Skye. The well known feature here is the Trotternish landslip, which contains two of the well known landmarks, the Old man of Storr and Quiraing. A scenic area with lovely views and hairpin bends, well worth...More
We love visiting the Isle of Skye and one of favourite must do scenic drives is the Trotternish Ridge. Man of Storr and Quirang are just two of many fantastic stops along the Trotternish Ridge. Both stops are stunning but do take the time to...More
Trying to schedule reasonably achieved sightseeing on Skye.. (1 Replies)
We have three full days scheduled in Skye. Please comment on whether this list of sites is crazy or reasonably seen in the time allotted: Day 1 Trotternish Peninsula: See: Trotternish Ridge (including Old Man of Storr, Lealt Falls, Mealt Falls, Kilt Rock, and the Quiraing), Island Life Museum, Fairie Glen Day 2: Boatride from Elgol to Coruisk (nothing else planned as I have no idea how long this takes). Please feel free to suggest additional things to see in this area if you think...More

The boatride can take as long as you want it to. From memory it;s about half an hour to get to Loch Coruisk. You can then spend all day and get a late boat back or just have an hour or two and go back on the next boat. Much depends on the weather and how far into the Cuillins you want to walk. A walk right round Loch Coruisk could take most of the day. Keep an eye on the forecast and try to book the day before if it looks fine. Your day 3 would be better on a dull/wet day as some of it's...More
Luggage storage in Portree (3 Replies)
Hello! My wife and I are planning a week-long trip to Isle of Skye. We're taking the bus from Inverness to Portree, then hiking up the Trotternish ridge for two days before taking the bus down to Sligachan and scurrying around the Cuillin for two more days. We're doing the whole trip out of our backpacking packs, and are spending our first and last nights on Skye in Portree. Does anyone know of a place for locker storage, or particularly helpful hotels that might be willing to hold on...More

At the risk of staying the obvious, why not ask the place where you will be staying in Portree?

Snow? (6 Replies)
Hi folks, Wondering if you could give me a bit of weather advice? We're regulars to Skye and considering walking the Trotternish Ridge over the weekend or beginning of next week with loose plans to camp. What with all the snow we've had down here, I'm trying to get a picture of how much snow is sitting round The Storr and Quiraing? Trying to determine if it's doable or totally daft! Cheers for any advice! Katie

Skye has had next to no snow compared to the rest of the UK. Yes we do have some up on the mountains but not that much
