Enjoyed the climb and the views are stunning. It can be a bit tricky in places so you need sensible clothes and footwear. Definitely worth doing on your trip!

Strongly recommend to take the hike up the mountain...will be extremely fulfilling! Amazing views 360 degrees. If sunny bring water with u and the hike should be no more than 1 h medium difficulty. Once up is mesmerizing 😍

It is not an easy hike. It gets very steep near the top and it should probably only be done on a nice day. If it is rainy or wet I would avoid, or at least only go as far as the gravel path. once...More

My friend and i are not really hikers. The opposite of it actually. But this challenged us and intrigued us to walk to the top. Around 45 minutes going up at a relaxed pace. And 30 minutes going down. Amazing 360 degree view!! No matter...More

The old man of storr is by far my favourite of the isle of skye. It is about a 45 minute walk to get to the top, having to walk over rocks and uneven ground. But when you get to the top the view is...More
