Šta ćete raditi

The Old Man of Storr. One of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks; a natural wonder formed during the last Ice Age, a sight of special scientific interest and an area of landslip unequalled anywhere. Meeting at the car park, which overlooks the Sound of Rasaay we begin our day by taking a less frequented southern approach. Avoiding the crowds our route wends it’s way through an awe inspiring maze of rocks, fallen blocks, hummocks and pinnacles to the base of the Old Man. There, in the secret sanctuary, we pause to rest and enjoy the views. Fortified with hot tea and Scottish shortbread we carry on beyond Needle Rock to a col, then up past deeply cut gullies to the Storr's summit plateau. A fantastic viewpoint, where few people go.
From there it is clear just how large the Storr is and we have a choice of 3 equally remarkable decent routes. We end our adventure once again by the car park and with our backs to the Storr we can see over the Isle of Rasaay to the mountains of Torridon far away on the mainland.
Other things to note
Guests should be reasonable fit and able to undertake a moderate hike of 6k with 580m ascent. Please bring sturdy footwear and waterproofs.

I have lived on Skye for over 25 years and spent 15 of those years as a mountain guide, leading individuals and small groups into the Cuillins, to be blown away by the beauty of Skye and the Hebrides. This desire for high places has led me all over the world from the Scottish mountains and English Lakes, to the Alps and Dolomites, Morocco, Spain and the Indian Himalaya.
During my years on Skye I have accumulated an expert local knowledge of the coastline, moorlands and mountains, and am particularly interested in flora and geology. I really love to show off an island where every walk presents new discoveries. Where even on known paths, raking light will reveal the hidden depths of a wet gully. Where an unexpected flush of wild flowers lifts the spirit and bird song changes with the seasons.
Come out for a walk, you’ll be amazed too!

Gde ćete biti

This experience is a complete tour of the environment of the Old Man of Storr. You will see all of the most popular viewpoints as well as other spectacular places, unknown to most people. We will begin on the lower ground of the moorland, have time to fully explore the sanctuary and also walk on the summit plateau.

Hire Ray! He’s a fantastic guide with a wide array of knowledge. We learned so much about the natural flora while hiking up the path far less traveled, we didn’t see another group until the Old Man Storr himself!

We booked Ray to take us up to The Old Man of Storr. We wanted a day to remember, more than just following the well trodden public route. We were not disappointed. We ascended using a individual approach where we had totally uninterrupted views of the magical scenery which is so beautiful it’s absolutely impossible to describe. Ray was both knowledgeable and skilled. He talked us through the fauna and flora; gave us samples of wild sorrel to eat and supported me when it was a little bit slippy as I am not the most confident of climbers! His homemade flapjacks and juice were an added bonus. Definitely recommend for all ages and abilities.

Ray organised a fabulous walk. He's very knowledgeable about wildlife, plants and geology. Plus of other interesting facts. He also supplied the best flapjacks ever!

This was an amazing activity, with a thoughtful considerate and knowledgeable host. He cares about the place he lives and you will learn so much. Far better than following the well beaten tourist path

Ray is both genuinely affable and knowledgeable. He was very in tune to the differing abilities of the group, resting at just the right moments of the climb. He has a vast knowledge of local flora/fauna/geology. I absolutely regret not asking more questions as there was certainly more to learn. The GF flap-jacks provided were amazing as well 😁

An amazing experience, off the beaten track and with a remarkable, personable and very knowledgeable guide, Ray. My 19 year old daughter and I couldnt have attempted this without his local insight. We were lucky to have a perfect blue sky day which provided great photo opportunities at every turn. At times it felt like the high meadows of the Alps with luscious green grass, heather, wild pink thyme and resident sheep. We even had good views of Torridon & Gairloch sands. It was a hot day and Ray let us go at the pace that suited us and thoughtfully bought along iced water. The homemade flapjacks were divine and just the energy boost we needed when we reached the sanctuary and before starting out decent. This was a tremendous experience and one we won’t forget. Definitely a 5 star adventure which gave us a great sense of achievement. Thank you Ray.
