The Storr & Quirang

The geology of the Trotternish Ridge is absolutely fascinating dating back through ages of volcanic activity and erosion making the Trotternish Ridge Britain's longest and most spectacular landslip. The views to be had from the summit are amazing. The Quiraing is situated in the north of Skye in the area known as ‘Trotternish’. The start of the walk is accessed from either of the villages of Staffin or Uig, which are joined by a single track road.

The name Quiraing comes from Old Norse 'Kví Rand', which means "Round Fold". Within the fold is The Table, an elevated plateau hidden amongst the pillars. It is said that the fold was used to conceal cattle from Viking raiders. As part of the Trotternish ridge it has been formed by a massive landslip which has created high cliffs, hidden plateaus and pinnacles of rock.
