Everything is beautiful on the Isle of Skye and Trotternish Ridge is no different. We really enjoyed the scenery here and I would suggest a stop-off to take in the views it has to offer.

The scale of this ridge is simply impressive and I throughly enjoyed climbing one of its peaks near the old man of storr. There was the odd walker about, but not overrun by tourists like many parts of skye. Be sure to come prepared with a map and compass as there are no sign posts and the walking trail is... More

The entire island of Skye is beautiful, but to me the Trotternish Peninsula is the jewel of the crown. Rent a car if you can, and take your time savoring the amazing scenery around every bend. I have spent time exploring here in both sun and rain, and beauty abounds in all conditions. This is a must while visiting the... More

When we went it had snowed the previous day and the tops were covered in snow which improved the already impressive views. The sun was out and the snow was melting fairly quickly which made it quite wet underfoot. We parked at the car park well above the cemetary and did a round walk past the Quiraing up onto the...

Great natural scenery and a great spot for peace and relaxation. Every way you turn the view is impressive, when the sky is clear of course!
