Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland by EuropeTrotter

This is properly one of the most famous walks on Isle of Skye …and definitely the busiest !
The Storr is the craggy summit atop the grand cliffs behind the famous pinnacle of the Old Man of Storr. Its ascent escapes from the busiest paths round the Old Man and offers spectacular views. Dominating the scene and visible fom many more parts of the islands, the Storr is the hill immediately west of the Old Man and rising to 719 metres with dramatic cliffs on its eastern flank.
The “Old Man” is a large pinnacle of rock that stands high and can be seen for miles around. As part of the Trotternish ridge the Storr was created by a massive ancient landside, leaving one of the most photographed landscapes in the world.
