The Storr

Isle of Skye


The Storr is probably the most famous walk on the island and certainly the most frequented. The "Old Man" is a large pinnacle of rock that stands tall and can be seen for miles around. Being part of the Trotternish Ridge, the Storr was created by a massive ancient landslide, making it one of the world's most photographed landscapes.

The Storr Parkway follows the same path up and down, starting and returning to the same point (the parking lot). It covers a total distance of 3.8 km and the average time to complete it is 1 hour 15 minutes (without stopping).
