  • We went with a 5yr old who made it up there. Quite big steps at times but lovely views from the top. No need to go to far beyond.

  • Probably my favorite hike we did on the Isle of Skye! It was absolutely beautiful and the landscape is incredible. It was a good hike and a bit of a challenge- some areas are a bit steeper than others and it was pretty muddy. We went in March and it was pretty cold and windy. Otherwise, I’d definitely recommend visiting here, it was amazing! I think you may have to pay for parking here.
  • Hike was filled with easy to climb stairs. Can get a bit muddy at parts depending on which route you decide to take. The top route is easier on the way down since it's more gradually steep. Viewpoint is about 40 minutes away nonstop.
