Steep heather slopes at Quiraing

The spectacular Quiraing on the Isle of Skye gives us a classic hill-walk. This circuit heads out above the escarpment and returns along its base. A beautiful hill-walk of 4 hours at the Trotternish. After a hour of climbing the path leads to the edge of the cliffs above the Quiraing. These two climbers head off left and climb steeply up the grassy hillside. The slope briefly relents by a grass-grown drystone dyke. This soon leads to the edge of the cliffs above the Quiraing, with spectacular views looking down. The outlook across the sea and Staffin Bay to the Torridon mountains is equally magnificent. Please have a look at the map. Despite the rain we continued walking.

Two climbers heading for the cliffs above the Quiraing located at the Trotternish on the Isle of Skye - Scotland.

Een berg wandeling van zo'n 4 uur leidt ons het eerste uur langs de spectaculaire Quiraing. Prachtig uitzicht over het Trotternish gebergte van het eiland Skye. Een schitterende bergwandeling maar helaas begon het voor ons al gauw te regenen. Het levert wel prachtige beelden op maar moeilijk om mijn lens droog te houden. Het pad leidt ons samen met deze twee klimmers tot de rand van de klip boven de Quiraing met een spectaculaire uitzicht over de Staffin Bay en de Torridon bergen. Ondanks de regen zijn we gewoon door gelopen. Zie hier de route.

    als ik me weer bedenk hoe steil het daar is; ik was toen blij dat het droog was; stoer van jullie om met nat weer de zwaartekracht te trotseren!
