The Pools are located in one of the most dramatic landscapes on Skye. Here you have about 1.5 hours to leisurely walk to the Pools, in the shadow of the Cuillin Mountains.

Quiraing and Staffin
Next up is the Quiraing, a landscape used in many sci-fi films, and known for its other-wordly rock formations and stunning vistas. This is a place like no other, part of the largest landslip in Europe.

The Old Man of Storr
The ridge is a mighty inland cliff, rising to a height of 720m. The Old Man is a 200ft stone pillar, which has detached itself from the highest point of the ridge, creating a fantastical landscape of twisted rocks, looming shadows and swirling mists, taking in a stunning cliff top view out to the islands of Rhona, Raasay and the mountains of Assynt.
