The Quiraing is a funny old place not just because of the weird rock formations that are there but also because of the eeriness and foreboding, that sense that someone is watching you, that there is a history about the place and you shouldn’t be there. However, faint heart never having won the fair maiden, there is an essentiality that makes you want to go there and test your own weaknesses.
Although it is only around one and a half miles from the roadside it is imperative to take as long as it needs, why spoil a good walk with an injury. From the path, apart from the constant view of the Quiraing itself, looking eastwards can produce an excellent panorama of Staffin Bay and Staffin Island and if its clear enough, the mainland. Also looking to the south the initial views are that of two lochains that are situated just under the Ridge and then you can follow the clifface by sight most of the way along the Trotternish at least as far as the Storr. The Quiraing contains such self explanitary areas such as The Needle, The Prison and The Table and the surrounding terrain seems to be a never ending area of the most greenish of green grass. Worth a visit.
