The Quiraing, Portree

4.9
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 .

  • Magnificent views of the sea links lands below. Hikes are available at the top pass area. Seeing the village area near the sea brought visions of Norse invasions.  more »

  • Some stunning scenery here, but make sure you bring hiking shoes. Trainers will leave your lower limbs shaking with fear of slipping if you have any phobia of heights
  • Mind blowing views of Northern Skye/Scotland. Came the back way from Uig, looked like we were on the moon! Coming the back way provided a much more dramatic arrival!
