Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, The Scottish Highlands

The Old Man of Storr is a strangely-shaped pinnacle of crumbling basalt just off the Trotternish peninsula in the north of the Isle of Skye. It stands at 50m high. The Old Man is part of a series of pinnacles off this part of the coast, known as the Sanctuary.

For a walk with spectacular scenery, you can reach the Old Man of Storr by taking the path from the car park in the woods to the north of Loch Leathan. The walk will take around an hour and you will stroll through a forest into a lunar looking landscape.
