The Quirang, Isle of Skye

View Larger Map

The Isle of Skye isn't short of stunning locations, and they don't get much more iconic that the Quirang. It's not difficult to get to, although the road between Staffin and Uig is narrow and twisty. There are car parking spaces just off the road at the top of the ridge, and for the classic view take the path that leads north-east. Like the road, this path is narrow and can get a little slippery, with steep drops.
It's a great place to shoot sunrise, especially during autumn, winter or spring as the sun rises further south than during the summer months.
