There are 13 named summits, from Beinn Dearg in the south to Meal na Suiramach in the north. The ridge rises to its highest point at the 719m summit of the Storr, above the tortured... More

The entire island of Skye is beautiful, but to me the Trotternish Peninsula is the jewel of the crown. Rent a car if you can, and take your time savoring the amazing scenery around every bend. I have spent time exploring here in both sun and rain, and beauty abounds in all conditions. This is a must while visiting the... More

When we went it had snowed the previous day and the tops were covered in snow which improved the already impressive views. The sun was out and the snow was melting fairly quickly which made it quite wet underfoot. We parked at the car park well above the cemetary and did a round walk past the Quiraing up onto the...

Great natural scenery and a great spot for peace and relaxation. Every way you turn the view is impressive, when the sky is clear of course!

I was sooooooo lucky to visit there in a sunny day. I watched the sunrise. You can never imagine the beauty of those snow mountains and grassland covered by the soft golden sun colour.

The Isle of Skye is much bigger than you first think. Road trips can involve surprisingly long distances, partly because you have to drive around the many lochs, not through them! Although we didn't do much walking, the drive round the northernmost part of Skye was spectacular. Take the road up north past Portree on the eastern side; the drive... More

While on the Isle of Skye, a trip around the Trotternish road is a must. Do not rush as there are many great things to stop and soak in the views. Stop for coffee or sweet treats at the most northern part of the drive.

This is not about the drive, but about the 28k hike that you can do on the Trotternish ridge. Tried it two years ago, failed. But this time, we did it ! It is a stunning hike, even in the middle of summer, you are alone in the greatness of Nature. Be aware that you need to be really fit... More

The entire peninsula is serene and beautiful. We have travelled the island in mist, rain, cloud and sunshine and each time it is striking.

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
