It was my trip to Isle of Skye and finding "Old man of Storr" in the top 10, decided to make a stop over. It was not at all disappointing - view leading to Portree and then the road that lead to Storr has amazing views and sceneries. Being a sunny day, we got our money's worth. As some pointed in reviews it was about a different textured mountain with few point hill structures. However when one see some amazing drone videos in youtube of this place, it would remind the Lokeswara face structures in Bayon, Cambodia or some Thai traiditional dancers with costumes. Road narrows down to one lane in some places requiring giving way to opposite vehicles or requiring reversing the car - but not really one to worry or bad. I would recommend this place on a sunny day.

Having heard so much about this landmark nd seen tv of climbers, it was great to see the old man in person.

We did not make the hike but just taking in the view from the car park was a special experience.

Parts of the track are quite steep, but we all managed to do it okay, given we are all 60+. The track itself is quite long but you can easily decide when you have seen enough, or think that it is becoming a bit too much for you.

Those of us who headed right the way up said they were disappointed with that part of the walk as it wasn’t really that good to see from up close - the view is apparently much better from a distance! Nice scenery though.

Parking can be a little tricky on a busy day so perhaps get there early in the day.

The view is otherworldly. It helps the know the legends of the old man of store. the landscape is rugged, barren, rocky outcrops like fingers in a odd landscape that just has to be seen to be appreciated. took a ton of pics because it was so fascinating

Awesome Hiking spot! Great views. Note; it will be windy, cold and you need to be able to hiking rock paths. Parking can be limited as its a very popular spot

I’m reasonably fit, a walker and 60+ and the challenge here was daunting. Don’t believe the guide books or leaflets that suggest this is an easy thing to do. The gravel path gets increasingly steep and then you begin a long stretch of (crumbling) stony steps up. Be ready to use your hands. Sticks or the hand of a friend will also be helpful. After rain, expect mud and slippery stones. At the top is a plateau that allows the tireless hikers to go on to wider views. But from wherever you call the climb over, you’ll have a beautiful view of the formations and the waters and islands between Skye and the mainland. Round trip of at least two hours. Parking along the road seems ample but for the busiest periods.

We did not climb it... didn't want faeries turning us into stone. But we stopped and had a look and heard the story. It's very pretty.

Hiking up the Old Man of Storr was just out of this world experience. The beauty and spectacular views of the land is jaw dropping in awe experience. Go early in the morning is what people suggested, and they are right. Less crowd and lighting is best to take pictures of the most tranquil beautiful scenery. A bit of warning is that bring insect repellent and apply it on your face and neck and ears. There's little flying gnat like insect called midges. They bite like crazy. So, be prepared!! Midges or not, this place is gorgeous and worth contributing a little of your blood to these pesky insects to behold such natural beauty that you cannot see anywhere else but here. Takes about 2 hrs. round trip. Just wear comfortable gym shoes or hiking shoes. It could get wet at anytime, so spray your shoes with water proofing spray. And it's free!

Took my parents here on a trip, they are in their 50s/60s and both managed the climb. They are relatively fit and healthy for their age- so many “mature” people may struggle more as it is a steep and long climb.
The weather has a big impact on the visibility of the landmark, so try to go on a clear day otherwise the view won’t be worth the hike!
Nevertheless, the view is incredible the whole time while hiking, and it is an enjoyable experience if you take your time while climbing to the top!
