and sweeping dramatic views found on the Isle of Skye. Really impressive countryside. We opted not to take the hike because of time constraints but would have otherwise. Parking lot available. Plan for all kinds of weather as it changes by the minute.

This isn't too difficult a hike, but you'll definitely need waterproof walking boots, and to bear in mind the winds can get quite strong.

The panoramic views are well worth it, as is seeing the Old Man as you approach it. For the first part of the walk, you can't really distinguish it from the hill behind.

Well worth the trip.

The Old Mann of Storr is quite easy to get to, and definitely a must see on a trip to Skye!
We decided to continue and walk all the way up to Storr following the route on http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/skye/thestorr.shtml and had a really good time. However, once you leave the beaten path it can be quite confusing as to which way to go, we did wonder at times if we had taken a wrong turn but eventually did find cairns to re-assure us. Great care must be taken coming down the gully as there were many loose rocks. We had to sit-climb our way down.
I would definitely do it again.

The Old Man of Storr is amazing. The hike is a bit tougher than I expected based on reviews. But then again, we were fighting torrential down pours and 35-50 mph winds last week.

Views were diminished by the weather but I canon told that against Storr. The experience was fantastic and I would recommend anyone in Scotland to make the trek to see the Old Man....the memory will last a life time!

Just follow the signs and park near the small forest there.
Take a good pair of shoes and large bottle of water and start hike the mountain!
don't give up in the middle and reach the top of the base of the rock!
you'll enjoy a breath-taking view!!!

Perfect for proposal ;)
