Trotternish Peninsula

The most northerly of the Skye peninsulae, Trotternish has at its heart the high ridge of volcanic rock known as the Trotternish Ridge. This ridge, which is one of the most popular walking areas on the island, runs from the peak of The Storr in the south east, through the striking Quiraing near Staffin, to end abruptly near Flodigarry in the north. On the way it produces some of the most memorable sights on Skye. These include the Old Man of Storr, the Kilt Rock Waterfall, Flora McDonalds memorial and many more.

If you are a little adventurous, take the narrow, winding road that runs from Staffin to Uig, which climbs to the top of the ridge from where you can start on great walks along the Quriang mountains.
