Can you avoid the crowds at the Quiraing?
There are a lot of people hiking here, but most people turn around when they get to the prison. If you are not up for the full circuit, or want to get a closer look at the needle and the table, then keep reading. When you get to the prison you follow the trails up to the needle. Hike to the left of the needle, and then curv to the right after you have passed it. Then you have several trails taking you up to the table or other similar areas. Great views up here, but it seemed to me like it was not possible to get up to the very top unfortunately.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
