We love a good walk, whether its up the Storr or just a wander round the Fairy Glen. Due to the Island's erratic weather and often challenging terrain, we recommend doing a little research first to see if you need any specialist gear or need to plan your route ahead.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us.


Below are just a few of the walks on Skye, varying in difficulty and terrain, there is something for everyone on the Misty Isle. 

Old Man of Storr

The Old Man of Storr is one of Scotland's most iconic landmarks. With Views of the mainland and Sound of Raasay, this is a very rewarding hill to climb. Mostly clear paths, but can get steep closer to the top. Takes about 2hours.

MacLeod's Tables

The MacLeod's Tables are two flat-topped hills with spectacular views at the summit, particularly Loch Bracadale and Loch Dunvegan. During the winter months we'd only recommend this to experienced walkers as the terrain is often snowy and requires more specific gear and skill to be completed safely.

This 7mile, 662m ascent generally takes between 4-6 hours.

Coral Bay

Trips to Coral Bay during the summer is a pastime we locals are very fond of. Taking just over an hour to reach this is a fantastic picnic location. With a decent track to walk down and a beautiful coastline to take a paddle in

(if you're brave enough!) this is definitely one for the to-do list.

Faerie Glen

The Faerie Glen is another of Skye's wierd and wonderful places, A miniature lanscape of cone shaped grassy hills and mystical spiral stones, This is straight out of a Tolkien novel.

There is only one explanation - fairies.
