Great hike with approx. 300 m ascent. Start the tour over the peak and come back passing 'The Needle' (clockwise). Duration: +/- 3 hours.

What a wonderful location. Very little crowds (at least when we were there), tremendous views, good hiking, etc. Highly recommend. Not marked extremely well if you are self-driving, however its not hard to find. Small car parks and easy hikes to the most key views....More

We took our four year old and this was a perfect kid-friendly hike. We hated that we could not do the entire trail, but it was so easy for a family outing. You can walk for 2 minutes or two hours and enjoy the amazing...More

Absolutely stunning. If I'm skye drive past the old man of storr and avoid the tourists. Nice easy walk with breathtaking views.

We stayed on Skye and this was recommended by our hotel staff as her favorite thing in the area. Hike up the ridge as far as you can, the views are gorgeous!

We visited the Quiraing as a part of a tour, and we were staggered by the glorious views. You definitely must go up to the outcropping hill, especially if you have good weather. The photo I took is essentially the same as the professional shot...More

On the map it showed a lower carpack with a path that connects to the main one. It almost immediately disapears so I followed the bottom of Quaraing then got trapped by a barbed wire path so I got creative. I am not a mountaineer...More

To stand and see this view just over takes your senses. The terrain of Scotland is so very magical and amazing, I was very surprised by a lot of it. I thought it might be like Ireland, and even though they do share some similarities...More

Did the tour by from the parkingplace walk after about 100 meters along the normal path, then straigth up the hill to the left, so the most difficult part is done at the start. Keep walking along the edge, great views! Way back through the...More

There are different paths and levels. Near kilt rock and the falls, there are huge drops to the rocks below. There are metal bars, but a too quick child could dash. Have an up front conversation with the 5 year old about... More

I'm planning on visiting Quiraing Saturday around noonish. I arrive at 8pm into Edinburgh from London. From the train station, plan to go to the airport, rent a car, and begin driving. Stay near Fort William on the A86 Friday night which is a 2h49m trip according to google maps. So I estimate I get to bed at 2am at the latest if I leave Edinburgh at 9:30pm. This means I can wake up at 8am and drive straight to Quiraing, which should be a 2 hour and 50 minute trip. Meaning I get there around 11am. Spend three hours walking around/hiking/etc.Then drive to the dinosaur prints near Staffin which is supposed to be 7 minutes away? Spend an hour there. It's 3pm and I drive back to Edinburgh via Fort William and Glencoe, which is supposed to be 6 hours. Take it the awesome scenery. Stop for gas, couple of breaks in between. Let's say it takes 9 hours, and I'm back in Edinburgh by midnight. Sleep. Walk around Edinburgh 8am-noon Sunday morning. Take the 3pm back to London. How does this plan sound? What is impossible about it if impossible?
