Skye Trail 2: Flodigarry to The Storr - Trotternish Ridge

Flodigarry

The very arduous and challenging second stage of the Skye Trail climbs from Flodigarry beneath the amazing rock formations of The Quiraing before continuing south on the Trotternish Ridge towards the Storr before a final descent to the road and bus stop. The rewards are tremendous - this must be one of the most dramatic ridge traverses in Britain. The stage is very long, and apart from a summer snack van after the Quiraing, there are no services on this section and no accommodation at the end; start early. If not wild camping it will be necessary to either get a taxi - or a bus if you are lucky - either onto Portree or back to Staffin for the night.

Terrain - Tough hillwalking on pathless ridge with much steep ascent and descent.

Grade 4

Distance 28.5km (17.7 miles)

Ascent 1750m (5741ft)
