It is quite challenging walk for someone who is not fit. We walked there on rainy day and it was still very busy. It is nice walk but I believe there are nicer places to visit in Isle of Skye.

This is an Iconic Landmark and is worth seeing. The good news is that it is large and readily from the road. The view from the south end of Lough Fada is very nice. The bad news is that if you want to get close...More
