Somewhat steep trail with amazing views the entire way up. As with most popular trails, it does get crowded, so get there early. Also, “early” is not that early on Skye. We arrived at about 8:30 am and were some of the first people on the trail.

Great hike even if the weather wasn't so nice with us (rain and strong wind). But the view is worth the effort !
We made it with two little childs of 6 and 3 years old !
The path is fine and different ways can be taken.

A nice, open walk with great views of the unique geological formations. The climb can be strenuous in parts and the trip to the old man takes about an hour in each direction.
The only downside is it can be quite crowded.

Fantastic views. The trail is not difficult, but due to wet ground, rain, wind, and generally cold conditions it becomes more difficult. Personally that made it more rewarding and enjoyable however. I wore trail shoes, but would recommend your hiking boots as you will be slogging through some muck after the halfway point. Warm clothes and rain gear are a necessity.

Finishes with one of the best views I have ever seen.

Gorgeous bike with breathtaking views. Decently hard during a rainstorm, I imagine it would be moderate / easier in better conditions.
