The rock formations and the surrounding area compose a landscape of exceptional beauty. Hard to go but the view is rewarding. The weather is an issue because the Skye has lots of mist, which if you are unlucky hides the view.

Just a great spot with easy access from the highway and great views of the sea. While the hike was great the highlight was actually a farmer moving his sheep down the road with a sheep dog and commands...just don't get to see that back...More

Beautiful rock formations. The hike is VERY popular so crowds are a thing at this location. The hike can be strenuous in points. Worth a look if you have the time and the patience.

Lovely spot to hike, even if it is too cloudy to see much, enjoyed walking the trails. Parking was rough but we were able to find a spot on the road to go hike for about an hour.

Was absolutely pouring down when we visited but we braved the rain to reach the top. Even with the rain, the views were incredible and well worth the climb. Was very busy and difficult to find parking - the only negative.

My wife and I just went up today. It took her 1.5 hours return at 72 and not a hill walker. For me it is 1.25 hours.
