The Quiraing is one of the most beautiful places on the Isle of Skye! We've been coming up to Skye for many decades and on our most recent trip in September 2017 we definitely noticed the huge change in the number of people! Can't imagine...More

Gorgeous place to visit, you can drive all the way up to the top and enjoy the views or take a walk.

The Quiraing is undoubtedly a victim of its own fame, however I have driven and cycled this road often and it never fails to impress. If you are not used to single track roads with passing places be prepared for a quick lesson. My advice...More

Truly breathtaking. You can hike a bit before it gets a little nerve-racking. Many folks seemed to go for a bit then realize their limitations. Still, the expanse is amazing. Start at the top, approach from Uig where the drive is stunning, then leave through...More

Wow. Excellent scenery and views but we were there on a Beautiful Sunday afternoon and parking was nuts. People had parked in all the passing places so it made the road one way for miles. It was not easy to negotiate when approaching another vehicle....More

Great spot for a very nice walk. You have to be quick for a parking place. The views are great. Can be busy at times.

Another great walk on the island. Great views and good photo shots. Was a tricky road so drive carefully. But worth it.

The Quirang has become a victim of its own success. The striking scenery, great hiking trails and magnificent views are now very hard to reach unless you walk up from the Staffin Road. This is because the single track road up over the Quirang is...More

while there is a path, if there is even a medium wind, it would be a struggle fro the wee one.

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?
