Isle of Skye

Danny MacAskill was born on the Isle of Skye and in some sections of the Quiraing Trail you may wish to have a bit more of his riding skills. The Quiraing is a ragged mountain ridge in the north of Skye. The trail runs alongside the ridge with breathtaking views. No matter if you are biking or hiking you need to stay focused on the trail, as it is fairly exposed most of the time.

Quiraing is fairly frequented by hikers during holiday season, so if you plan to do it on the mountain bike you should start either early or late in the day. Anyway, you will find yourself hiking and pushing or carrying your bike in several spots. Hiking the whole trail up to the top of the ridge is definitely a good alternative that rewards you with fantastic views (if the weather allows).
