Parking is not very easy, but that's the only problem you'll encounter The hike around the mountains is great, it's easy to follow the path and views are just amazing. You'll not regret it for sure please, just be careful is case of rain/long rainy...More

Moderate to difficult but stunning hike. The recommended hike time was around 3 hours but it took my parents and I around 5. While a little of that might have been due to being out of shape MOST of the stops were because we couldn't...More

Hiking the Quiraing was the most memorable part of our trip, however there really needs to be more signs leading you around the loop. At the top, the path diverges, and you have the guess where to go. To the right, there's a huge cliff...More

HIGHLY recommend taking a tour bus--this place is crowded in the summer--and parking is a nightmare!

This place is amazing. Some people say it’s a place to ‘cheat’ and get good photography without doing very much or expending much effort. A 10 minute walk up from the car park will give you a beautiful view- and the more you walk up...More

Followed the 4-5 mile route that circles round the back of the mountain up to the top. Fantastic views from all sides, of different landscapes and out to sea and of other islands. Even when the weather closed in it was wonderfully atmospheric. The route...More

Breathtaking experience. This trail was just amazing, even we didn't have sunny, really worth visiting even in cloudy, windy and little bit rainy weather. Ok to visit in November as well. Beautiful views, green ladscapes, high points, sheep... Please not for children. Take good shoes,...More

I did it in a couple of hours on my own, I imagine the views on all the hikes are just as stunning even if it is raining!

Fabulous walk with beautiful views and hidden hanging valleys. Well worth a visit especially for photographers. Be prepared for the weather to change on you mind, it can take a while to get back to shelter. Highly recommended.

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?
