Great for running! Steeply up and then looong way down the hill. Sweet and short.

Very well signposted. Very good views. Excellent trail run

Great hime with excellent views.

I only did part about an hour until fence
I dream of going back and complete the loop. The quiraing is magnificent!!

A good surfaced undulating pathway for one and a half to two hours walk
Did it on chistmas eve to keep 3 young grandsons occupied Finished it in eery darkness with a nearly full moon lighting the sky

Amazing I did it in the summer and did it at a perfect time when I reached the top I could sit there and watch the sun start to set.

Lovely coastal trail. Beautiful ocean views along the way. It connects up with other trails so you can keep walking for a long time if you wish.

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.

On your doorstep if you live in Greenock. Great coffee stop at cornalees too. Done road and off road walking with corlic and the communications hills thrown in for good measure if you want a climb.

Amazing views. 1/2 the circuit is well kept tails. 1/2 is more rugged. 10/10 would recommend

Great walk with the dogs..came in from the Drymen side..long walk in but great views along the way

An incredible hike experience with truly the possibility of any weather system imaginable. We hiked Ben Nevis late September with 100% rain starting as a mist to pelting cold, icy rain. We were dressed for the weather and were challenged especially above the cloud line. Temps started about 12'C and dropped to the freezing point at the summit (and recent snow was still at the summit). The trail was a consistent gradual climb of 450 floors elevation (Fitbit) over the 12km trek up (took just over 4 hours). Below the midpoint was stunning views and trails like they were right out of Lord of the Rings. Streams gurgling out of the mountain, mountain sheep along the path and the trail wrapping the gorges. Above the mid-point, the trail got rockier and the climb harder to navigate. With the rain, the cloud bank and the fog, at points the trail and the cairn markers were hard to see, but we summited and had lunch in the emergency shelter out of the rain before descending soaked through. Completion stats (from Fitbit tracking) was 31,400 steps, 450 floors elevation, 22.8 km in steps in just under 7.5 hours. For us, a new hiking record that tested us in a wet cold environment we had not explored before. Difficult due to the conditions and the scope, but I would do it again!

If you are looking for epic Isle of Skye views … the Quiraing will deliver (from both trails above and below)! We hiked this late September and the ground was sopping wet. We began with the climb portion of the trail deciding to slightly off-road from the trail as it was extremely mucky and hard to climb. With the scrub and moss running with water, it wasn't much easier, but without the mud. The climb wasn't too arduous and a nice (wet) walk across the summit to the mid point where the descent begins. A much drier trail on the return portion amongst the rocks below the cliff face. Everywhere delivered stunning landscape views that made you stop and take in the sights. A busy enough trafficked trail, but there was lots of space not to feel crowded. Worth the effort!

Absolutely perfect. A lot of people at the top. A little challenging for the beginner in some spots.

Awesome, short trail. Beautiful view from the top. Very crowded but really worth it.

Great hike, hard descent though

Absolutely stunning. We got there really early to beat the crowds, and beat them we did—it was so worth it to see the sun rise over the Quairaing landscape. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so beautiful, and to top it off, it started drizzling a little and so we got a double rainbow too.

Signage was somewhat lacking; we accidentally continued past the circuit and were on the path down to Flodigarry before we realized we’d gone astray (one downside to being alone on the trial). If you find yourself stepping over a livestock fence, then you’ve gone too far. Also, beware of sheep poop.

A well trafficked trail with some elevation but still not terribly difficult on a nice day. Even on the calmest day it’s very windy at the top.
