  • Spend your day exploring the iconic landslip that is Quiraing, hiking a remote landscape filled with vertical cliffs, vast plateaus and rock pinnacles. Starting from the northern tip of the island, the 10-mile (16-kilometers) tour continues towards the Table, a plateau encircled by vertical cliffs, after which you’ll climb past the hidden lochs and keep hiking towards Bioda Buide, from which you’ll take in all the best views of the peninsula. Last stop of your 650-meter vertical ascent is the Garden of the Gods, but you’ll also have a chance to admire Beinn Edra. Comfortably explore the island with your experienced and knowledgeable tour guide and finish the hiking tour by going downhill into Uig Bay.

    • 57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity. 

      We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re traveling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in Scotland, please refer to the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 updates.

    • Isle of Skye hiking tours are moderately difficult, but it all depends on your hiking experience and fitness level. You need to be able to hike for a full day and walk through different terrains. There’s no need to be an Olympic athlete since you’ll move along the hiking trail at a comfortable pace, but keep in mind that you’ll be walking for around 10 miles (16 kilometers) over varied terrain and inclines. Please note that the Isle of Skye hiking routes are not suitable for sufferers of vertigo.
