Create an itinerary including The Quiraing
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.

  • Gorgeous insane views. Breathtaking. Pretty sketchy if you’re afraid of highs as the trail gets very narrow with a big drop off

  • A must visit spot on Skye, definitely my favourite and I couldn't even do all the walks that there are.

  • Way too windy and foggy for us to be able to enjoy it unfortunately.
  • An absolute must for any trip to Skye.
