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 Trotternish peninsula in the north east of Skye is dominated by a spectacular ridge of hills that runs for over 30km along its backbone. There are 13 named summits, from Beinn Dearg in the south to Meal na Suiramach in the north. The ridge rises to its highest point at the 719m summit of the Storr, above the tortured... 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!

I was sooooooo lucky to visit there in a sunny day. I watched the sunrise. You can never imagine the beauty of those snow mountains and grassland covered by the soft golden sun colour.

The Isle of Skye is much bigger than you first think. Road trips can involve surprisingly long distances, partly because you have to drive around the many lochs, not through them! Although we didn't do much walking, the drive round the northernmost part of Skye was spectacular. Take the road up north past Portree on the eastern side; the drive... More
