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 .

The walk to reach the most famous pinnacles is not for everyone, but already from the street you can enjoy this wonderful show, especially if you are lucky enough to enjoy a sunny day. Don't miss it.
Από τα βασικά μέρη στη Σκωτία που πρέπει να επισκεφθεί κανείς! Πανέμορφο απλά! Πετύχαμε ηλιόλουστη μέρα και πραγματικά δεν ήξερες που να πρωτοκοιτάξεις.... more »One of the key places in Scotland to visit! It's just beautiful. We achieved a sunny day and you really didn't know where to first look....
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.
