The Old Man of Storr, the 200ft stone pillar is one of the iconic natural features of the dramatic Trotternish Ridge, from here its then onto Kilt Rock with the distinctive pillars and beautiful waterfall,
We take the opportunity to drive up the Quiraing, lying in the far North of Skye, This is a place like no other, simply stunning, its part of the largest landslip in Europe. Come to the cliff edge with me and see it for yourself!

A Recent Review of this tour

We really enjoyed our day with Ally. One of the best things was that because he was born and raised in the area, his stories were so personal and will be remembered for years. I.e., he would say "this is where my cousins and I would ...", or "this is my grandfather's house where we ..." The weather was spectacular which made it even better! Thanx Ally.
