A difficult drive over a remote ridge. V popular even as late as Oct with v few parking places. Views are amazing. Wildlife not as obvious as tourist guides lead you to believe.

As the drive from Uig to Staffin is on a single track road through the moor the first sight of the Quirang is quite breathtaking as the pillars , cliffs and greenery contrast with the sea and the mainland hills. Parking is at a premium...More

Well this was top of my list of places to go on Skye, but unfortunately we could not get parked. The parking spaces were all full and people were parking in the passing places. We had to drive quite a bit to be able to...More

You're visiting Skye- why would you not go here? It's a fun drive, there's spots to get out and enjoy the views, and it's an enjoyable way to spend part of you day. So go!

One of the most stunning landscapes I've ever seen. Highly recommend driving through here at sunset – it's unreal.

Great place to hike. Gets very busy so go early. We parked down by the cemetery and it worked out well. Be sure to bring waterproof clothing, including pants. We didn’t have the pants and got quite wet! Hiking is not too tough but there...More

Amazing place, just wish people would learn to use passing places and park appropriately. We didn't need to walk too far from the viewpoint, but wished we had time to go further.

Our satnav tried to send us over this road from Uig to Staffin and we ignored it thinking it wasn't worth the risk (sign at start saying road closed during bad weather). We then bumped into someone who told us there is a car park...More

This was one of my fave stops on Skye. So green and majestic. Really makes you feel like there is more to life than the everyday comings and goings. We hiked around a bit along the Quiraing trail and the scenery was fantastic. Worth spending...More

Great walk, a bit squidgy at the top but great views and a fun trail. Dog loved it too! Wear waterproof shoes or bring extra socks!

while there is a path, if there is even a medium wind, it would be a struggle fro the wee one.

I'm planning on visiting Quiraing Saturday around noonish. I arrive at 8pm into Edinburgh from London. From the train station, plan to go to the airport, rent a car, and begin driving. Stay near Fort William on the A86 Friday night which is a 2h49m trip according to google maps. So I estimate I get to bed at 2am at the latest if I leave Edinburgh at 9:30pm. This means I can wake up at 8am and drive straight to Quiraing, which should be a 2 hour and 50 minute trip. Meaning I get there around 11am. Spend three hours walking around/hiking/etc.Then drive to the dinosaur prints near Staffin which is supposed to be 7 minutes away? Spend an hour there. It's 3pm and I drive back to Edinburgh via Fort William and Glencoe, which is supposed to be 6 hours. Take it the awesome scenery. Stop for gas, couple of breaks in between. Let's say it takes 9 hours, and I'm back in Edinburgh by midnight. Sleep. Walk around Edinburgh 8am-noon Sunday morning. Take the 3pm back to London. How does this plan sound? What is impossible about it if impossible?
