Great views! My mom and I walked this trail in June and the weather was great for it. Definitely recommend it. It’s within walking distance from the Cairngorm hotel too (which I also recommend).

Beautiful view at the top.

First hike we did on isle of skye: it rained and wind at 12 C late June but still a most memorable hike in outstanding landscape!! I would go back tomorrow !

Did this hike in memorial to my dad who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2017. He loved Scotland and especially This area. This was a especially hot and dry day with zero escape from the sun. We prepared for wet, cold and boggy but not this time! Probably the best views I have ever had from a Scottish hill.

Easy trail. Fantastic views of the viaduct and loch. Loop directions are a little vague.

One of the iconic Isle of Skye hikes, takes 1-2 hours. We hiked late September (slightly off season) just after a few days of rain, so the trail was very muddy and wet. Parking was a challenge in the small lot, but overflow parking along the road is available. We started with the first left branch that meandered a gentler climb than the straight up direct path. A good moderate hike with the climb made more challenging with the billy-goating to jump and navigate the mud. Excellent views of the mountains and shoreline with the pinnacles of the Old Man of Storr himself the main attraction. A great stop along the Isle of Skye route from Kilt Rock and Mealt Falls, the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing Circuit. Note the driving gets down to a one lance dance with oncoming traffic that is a fun treat to experience - a Scotland must!

A journey through the amazing lochs

My first ever hike. Really enjoyed it.Went anti clockwise , so a good warm up gradual walk before the ascent. Stunning view at the top although very windy. We took a jet boiler and made a cuppa. Trying to get over my fear of heights and met a lot of people on the way up and they were so encouraging, stopping to say hi and cheer me on.

Easy flat short walk, very nice.

Great view of two lochs, not to difficult really, maybe for half hour up the side of the hill, if traveling in anti clockwise direction.. but I took a couch potatoe with me and made good time.

Easy trail that is clearly marked. Fantastic experience.

If I had done the walk in clear fine weather it would get 5 stars. superb views over the islets and fascinating round house. Beyond round house no real trail and boggy but great views and firmer ground by cliff tops

Gorgeous views, a must if you’re a fan of Harry Potter. The parking can be a bit tricky in this area, even in shoulder season.

Great trail with a good quick elevation climb. The weather can change quickly and conditions can be challenging when this happens. Be prepared for sleet, snow, fog, or if you’re lucky, a fantastic view. Definitely worth your time.

Walked today in a clockwise direction. Much easier that way. Beautiful views and a good path.

I would consider this a more medium hike that a hard one. That being said it’s huge value for the amount of work. The views are wonderful and the path is well marked. There is a little technical foot placement on some of the down hill sections. It did rain on me (then hailed) most of the time but that’s Scotland.

did our own path, so many trails and places to explore. very beautiful. need to go early before 9 am, crowds start gathering after 10.

very crowded. can get muddy but worth the views. be careful of rock slides. we heard rocks falling from the big rock face cliff, of course people shouting wasn't helping.

did the entire loop. beautiful views
