Walking up to The Old Man of Storr on the beautiful Isle of Skye I had to take my now usual “fat boy” stop to catch my breath and as I turned to look back this is the view I was greeted with. Very Gothic in its appearance The Storr forms an imposing feature overlooking Portree.
The walk up is set as medium length and medium difficulty taking an hour and a bit to get somewhere near the area of this shot and certainly a lot quicker back down, quite steep in sections so not really for the unfit. It’s probably one of the busiest walks on Skye and although we were fairly early going up coming down there were hoards of visitors climbing up, the car park was overflowing and on covering the main road for quite some distance.
Certainly one of those places I would recommend visiting, the earlier in the day the better I think to avoid too many tourists.
