One of the most amazing sights you will see, when you travel around the Isle of Skye in Scotland, is the ‘Old Man of Storr’ We passed by in 2013, and you can see the rock looming up from quite a distance. The following photos are of the drive to the site.
The ‘Old Man’ is a large pinnacle of rock that stands high and can be seen for miles around. As part of the Trotternish ridge the Storr was created by a massive ancient landside, leaving one of the most photographed landscapes in the world.
The Old Man of Storr rises to 535 metres and is visibile from the main road between Portree and Staffin on the west coast of Skye. Dominating the scene and visible fom many more parts of the islands the Storr is the hill immediately west of the Old Man and rising to 719 metres. This is now a very poplar walk and gets very busy, although its not classed as an easy walk.
