  • It is one of the symbols of the Isle of Skye. A large pinnacle about fifty meters high that rises along with other rocks a note like the cathedral. There you get there on foot from the small parking lot on the main road. It enjoys a wonderful sight, one of many of this fantastic island.

  • Very crowded but beautiful. We left the car as we could in a ditch and followed the rising crowd, like ants, uphill. Steep climb, we recommend wearing mountain shoes.

  • What an extraordinary place. I loved that this photo was not free but you had to limb a bit and had a casual 30min hike from the road. I would suggest getting there early as there will be so much people in the afternoon you won't enjoy it as much.
  • Great hiking place, but we didn’t reach the Storr stone, the hiking track is quite far, however there is no sign at the parking lot to inform the distance. Get yourself prepared and wear a proper hiking shoe.
