Quiraing, Portree Reviews

  • I felt like every 2 minutes you'd stop and look at your view and want to take photos. It took us about 3 hours - with photos and mini breaks. I could potentially take longer, but that should be ample time. We had great weather, so weather did not hold us back. It could take 1.5 hours if you're very quick but 2 hours should be good enough time to hike and see things along the way. The hike gets narrow here and there, but as far as elevation, its pretty gradual and or flat. Parking was easy - although we went earlier. The road there was a little bit steep, but our small rental made it through!

  • Absolutely amazing place, great walks, can be very busy though, try for evenings or mornings,

  • This place is so beautiful you will want to stop every minute of your drive and cick it..

  • Sublime. Pas d'autre mots. Une randonné dans les collines fabuleuse.

  • Får inte missas om du är på Isle of Skye. Riktigt brant väg om du kör (15% lutning där du kan få möte). Men riktigt vacker utsikt.
