Witness one of Scotland’s most impressive geological phenomena at The Quiraing. Set in the mountainous landscape of the Isle of Skye, the site represents continuously moving landslips that have formed a series of bluffs and rock formations. Hike the 6 km (3.7 mi) trail that snakes through the formations and enjoy dramatic views of the island’s coastline and sprawling green landscape. While the terrain can be rough to hike in poor weather, the site is also accessible by car. Stop by the local tearoom on your way out of town for homemade cakes and a nice selection of teas. Put The Quiraing on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Isle of Skye road trip tool.

Fabulous. Steep and slippy in places if you do the loop but easy if you're fit.
Absolutely stunning hike and landscape. It’s worth the hike for sure.
