Inspirock Rating:
4.9/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web
Witness one of Scotland’s most impressive geological phenomena at Quiraing (Hill Walk). 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. Add Quiraing (Hill Walk) and other attractions to your Isle of Skye trip itinerary using our Isle of Skye tourist route planner.

  • Fantastic place, can go on a grey day, but if the day is sunny there is perfect. Amazing the harmony of nature. Who is Skye has to meet this attraction.

  • Without a doubt, the most beautiful place on Skye, and that is saying something. Have been there several times now, and I will continue to come back. It is so unique a place, that it can't be described with words just came off!

  • the view point is absolutly amazing! I can definitely recomend it a lot!!!!
  • Amazing geology, amazing nature. The low-and-high loop around the cliffs Needle and Temple is breathtaking.
