Lovely trail but it was a shame we got caught in a cloud and couldn’t see anything. Still we’d love to come back and do it again because I bet there’s some great views from the top of that peak. Would say that the trail gets a bit hard to follow at the top

Easy trail and very beautiful.

Lovely little hike. We saw no one on the trail and enjoyed a nice view of the coral beach. Much of the hike is a bit plain, but would do it again.

Nice but couldn’t actually find the dinosaur footprints.

this was a stunning hike, we did the full loop and and glad we took the right path first rather than the left - going down the last bit of the loop is a bit tricky but worst case you slide down on your bum!

The trail head is down the hill from the car park and isn't easily identifiable. that and another turn down a driveway then you can make out the trail. A couple of steep narrow sections, but quite fun trail out to Brother's Point

Beautiful little jaunt with some unique features and lots of sheep. Delightful!

Absolutely stunning! A must do

This was amazing. It was crazy how high up you get up. There are lots of places that if you are afraid of heights, you will need to back away. There are all these amazing views of the lakes and shorelines. Definitely a must do.

This trail is absolutely gorgeous, but a lot more exposed than a lot of US hikers would be used to. Still awesome and totally worth it.

Awesome trail with spectacular views and terrain. I hiked up to the table but couldn’t complete the loop because of time constraints. Descending down from the table and past the needle was really challenging and I would not recommend doing that to anyone who isn’t comfortable scrambling and dealing with scree/bad footing.

Wonderful trail. Check for ticks! Amazing views. Slippery rocks and dirt. Great views. Good to bring walking sticks.

Magnificant short hike, beautiful vistas of town and sea. 1.5hr loop walk from the center of town to the trail head (just past the hotel entrance) with several photo stops.

Stunning views - an incredible loop!

Breathtaking views throughout the duration of the walk. Just the right amount of walking for a couple of hours around the Quiraing. Would love to go back and walk more of the area. Mainly rocky terrain, narrow in places and a bit of a steep climb/decent round the back of the Prison (but has a wire fence you can hold on to if need be)

Hands down one of the most beautiful hikes of my life. Far more stunning and interesting than Old Man of Storr. Rocky pinnacles, exposed traverses, steep cliff faces and raw, otherworldly landscapes. If you choose one hike in Isle of Skye, this is the one. Moderate hike but not too difficult. Just have good shoes and make sure to respect the trail and walk safely.
