"The Quiraing is awesome. It is supernatural. It is a place of wonder and amazement. It is outstanding by any measure. If you are fit enough to walk the narrow path and scramble up and down the steep slopes you must do it. To visit Skye without experiencing the Quiraing seems unthinkable."

..could not put it better myself..........

Some dangerously steep slopes to catch the unready along here too Jeanie, I recall slipping on the grass here wearing my waterproof trousers and scrabbling to get a grip on the surface.
I'm here to tell the tale, by the seat of my pants. So to speak.

It is magical up here and Skye has a fairy tale feeling many places.

The sheep have worn wonderful grooves around the little hills here, following their ever hungry mouths.

Thank you Dougie, Phil and Brian Grin

Dougie its a long time since I climbed up the table... before Jura was here in fact.... Went up there with my other beardie boy Hamish and remember bricking it along the path to the Table where it narrows... I would love to go back up there but not when Jura is with me who does not understand that I am not being mean when I won't throw stones for him along that path! Grin
