strong>Hillwalking Storr and Old Man o Storr, North Skye - Scottish Walks.

The Storr, Skye.
Difficulty. Slightly Hard. Duration. 3 Hrs. O.S. 23.

The Storr is rather like it’s sister as some would like to call it, the Quirang, in that the rock formations are similar and both are part of the Trotternish Ridge, which is in north Skye.

Being only a few miles north of Portree, the capital, a one hour walk will take you to the heart of the Storr but if you happen to be there in the peak of the season make sure you have an early rise as this is probably the most visited of excursions on Skye, even more than the Cuillins since the Storr is only walking and not climbing and thus can sustain many of us who are over twenty one.

The path is straightforward and is well signposted off the A855 starting near a bus stop. The walker will have to negotiate some forestry, half a mile or so, then the Storr comes into full view, though there is still a bit of walking to do if you desire a real close ups of the rocks. From the Storr, to the east, the isles of Raasay and Ronay as well as the mainland can be clearly seen. If you choose, a good idea, is to have some sandwiches etc. with you as the views should be given their own time and enjoyed to the full and there are plenty of picnic areas on the way up. The path is fine all the way.
