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.

excellent hike, the view is amazing. putting on good walking shoes and poles can be helpful, especially downhill (very muddy).

Great trail with amazing views! The way back was quite difficult, no real track, muddy, but still great fun.

Beautiful spot ... surreal environment. Only criticism is that the walk down back to the parking lot is very muddy and pretty torn up though.

I’ve done this twice. Once in June of ‘98 and again in August of ‘18. The views are simply unbelievable. Not a difficult hike, but with Scottish weather, it’s best to be prepared. Extremely windy last summer. It’s a must do if on Skye. It was a bit crowded and parking can be a problem

Even though it was cloudy, a bit rainy and very windy it was still a very beautiful hike! It wasn’t to hard, but still challenging at times. I would love to do it again, sun or no sun.

Lived up to expectations. The further along you get, the more you shed the crowds. Solid inclines but they don’t last too long. Best views I’ve ever seen. Got lucky to have great weather, no wind, and no clouds. Somewhat boggy and rocky at points, so wear good shoes. Lots of sheep and lambs. Mind the poop!

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

Go early as parking is tough. It’s a really fun and beautiful hike!

Some of the most unique landscape I've ever seen. Doing the full hike is worth it. Will be very busy with tourists the first 20 minutes or so, after that we saw 2 other people.

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!
