The Quiraing is an iconic hike along the Isle of Skye’s Trotternish peninsula. Gloriously unique, the 4.5 mile loop is made up of huge jagged pinnacles, sunken lakes and rocky mountains; rewarding you with panoramic views across lochs, mountains and out to sea. The changing light casting over the angles of the surrounding mountains and the vibrant colours of the Scottish highlands will leave you with memories for a lifetime.
If you’re visiting the Isle of Skye, you can’t miss the Fairy Pools. The Fairy Pools are beautiful rock pools of crystal clear spring water fed by a series of waterfalls. Free to visit at any time, the spectacular Fairy Pools are located near the village of Carbost in Glenbrittle on the Isle of Skye.
Neist Point is one of the most famous attractions in Skye. Located on the most Westerly point of Skye, Neist Point stretches out into the sea with a powerful 480,000 candle powered lighthouse on the tip. Massive cliffs ring the coast here, and it’s a wonderful photography spot with the sheer cliffs & birdlife a plenty. One of the best place in the world to watch the sunset.
The Old Man of Storr is a signature sight not only in Skye, but it’s one of the top walks in Scotland. Situated in the north of the Isle of Skye in the Trotternish area, The ‘Old Man’ is just one element in an array of fantastic rock features that jut high into the sky from the hilly land. The views out over the Sound of Raasay and to the mainland are work the hike.
