Quiraing Isle of Skye
The Quiraing was probably our favorite walk on the Isle of Skye.
Located on the northernmost bit of the Trotternish ridge, the Quiraing on a clear day has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world.
We did the circuit option which is about 7km and from which you get views of the Scottish mainland and the Outer Hebrides.
Autumn (and winter) light in Scotland is golden all day long if the sun is shining. The sun stays low and the shadows long for the whole day.
We tried to stay in the sun as much as possible because it’s chilly in the shadows.
Since we had already walked to The Storr that morning, the afternoon stretched out a little long for our littlest guy especially when we were climbing over the top of the ridge, but he made it up. Then once we were on the other side, he was running down.
You can tell from Mary Polly’s clothes that even though it was a sunny October day by the sea, we were still bundled up.
We met a few sheep along the way, of course.
If you want to go to The Quiraing Isle of Skye, here’s a more detailed description of the walk, including where to park.
Stay tuned because tomorrow are the Fairy Pools!
