Quiraing, hill circuit

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The truly spectacular Quiraing is an icon of Scotland. Many people visit only the first short section of path, but this complete hill circuit goes further, passing the Prison, Needle and other features before climbing back to return above the escarpment; the views are simply sensational throughout.


Good path initially, but rough and rocky with one minor scramble. Return over hill is exposed and final descent is very boggy and eroded.

Public Transport

None to start, nearest service bus stop 3km at Brogaig, Staffin.


Parking at summit of the minor road between Staffin and Uig. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
