  • A strenuous climb (and that we did not get up at all). It should be prepared with clothing and shoes appropriate for mountain, if not you run the risk of slipping. Remember that it is a mountain climb. Although we only come to half by bad weather and the lack of habit to do exercise was worth it. The views are incredible. It's like being at the top of the world.

  • In Septmber 2016 we have made us on the way and ran from the parking lot to the old man of Storr. The rise was pretty, so time should be scheduled up to. The weather did unfortunately a spanner in the US and it has been raining almost horizontal, what has made the whole messy and the "old man" was only to hint at the fog. For hiking / to race-enthusiastic nature lovers enjoy a must to the beautiful view!

  • The positive it's views, the big negative is this trail or rather this highway to mount, is a long time goes very raid and it is shielded from world. I didn't get to the end so early I was disgusted. The island is full of much more charming than this one for me places including the Quiraing. You must love to walk and climb otherwise don't venture there.
