Wild Rat­ing

Trail (UK) - - Wild Nights -

GET­TING HERE > Ac­cess to the Quiraing by car is in­cred­i­bly easy. A large car park with tourist in­for­ma­tion board lies to the south-west on the road from Bro­gaig (NG439679). Foot­paths lead into the land­slip and over Meall na Suira­mach. An­other path, at NG463709, leads up from Flodi­garry where you can also find a hos­tel with a small shop.

STAY­ING OVER > If you're wild camp­ing, make sure you leave no trace. Ar­rive late, leave early and carry out ev­ery­thing you bring in. Bury toi­let waste - ex­clud­ing loo roll - in a hole six inches deep. It can be tempt­ing to take rocks and fos­sils away, but do leave them in place.

WHAT’S NEARBY > The en­tire, glo­ri­ous 36km Trot­ternish Ridge, which can be tack­led in 2-3 days. The Storr (NG495540) has sim­i­larly eerie scenery and the coast­line to the north is well worth ex­plor­ing.
