We visited this place in december. It was a little bit slippery and wet, but we had a nice walk. The scenery and the view from the top is really beautifull.

The entire area is breathtaking. We could not hike to the top as were not adequately geared up for it. It would be a good idea to carry water resistant boots and clothing. And carry some snacks/drinks.

This hike is a must-do on Skye. The views are incredible, and the hike itself isn't too strenuous, but it is time-consuming. We saw a couple with a baby on this hike, so clearly, it's not that difficult. We only had one full day on...More

What a place! Walked from the car park to the table and back in a circular route. Not a beginners walk but not too difficult if you are relatively fit. The views are stunning.

A group of friends and I spent the afternoon climbing up. Amazing views. Great climb for city girls without experience.

This is a beautiful hike. A sterp road up at 15 degrees in spots, but worth the drive up!! There are some precarious paths but the view is worth every effort! We enjoyed the hike thouroughly!!

If you are in the Isle of Skye, Quiraing is something that you cannot miss. Be prepared for high winds and cool air, but it is quickly overlooked when taking in the stunning views. Quiraing was by far the most memorable portion of my visit...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

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?
