Wat je gaat doen
The Old Man of Storr is Scotland's iconic landmark; a natural wonder formed during the last Ice Age, a sight of special scientific interest and an area of landslip unequalled anywhere. We will meet at the Old Man of Storr car park and to avoid the crowds, take a different and southern approach to reach the secret sanctuary. This walk will guide you through an awe inspiring maze of rocks, fallen blocks, hummocks and pinnacles to the base of the Old Man, where will pause to rest and enjoy the views. We carry on past the Needle Rock to a col, then on and up past some deeply cut gullies to the Storr's summit plateau. A fantastic viewpoint, where few people go. The Storr is a very big place and we will have a choice of 3 equally remarkable decent routes, back to our starting point.
I have lived on Skye for over 25 years and widely explored the Scottish mountains, English Lakes, European Alps and Dolomites, Spain, Morocco and the Indian Himalaya. Working as a mountain guide for 15 years, leading individuals and small groups has always been a pleasure and an opportunity to share my enthusiasm. Flora and geology are my particular interests. During my years on Skye I have accumulated an expert local knowledge of the coastline, moorlands and mountain habitats, which I enjoy to share. With every walk, even over the same ground, there are new pleasures: a slant of light revealing hidden depths in a cliff face, a flush of wild flowers in an unexpected place, the sound of bird song changing with the seasons.... Come out for a walk- you will be amazed, too!
