Quiraing, Skye

Skye is one of the most attractive islands in the Western Highland. Due to its popularity, the landmarks of Skye like Fairy Pools, Old Man of Storr etc tend to be very crowded. Especially during the high season. However there are still many less crowded places to visit. I managed to spot one of those, Quiraing.

Quiraing is a moss covered ridge of mountain tops. It is easy access from the bypassing road. A good hiking path starts from the parking place beside the road, and the path continues all the way up to the flat top of Quiraing. However, for landscape photography, the scenery towards the top and the neighbouring tops is quite nice already at lower heights as well. Especially on partly cloudy weather, when moss covered ascents are painted with lights and shadows.

Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to hike up to the top. So something to look forward for the future.
