Isle of Skye, The Scottish Highlands, UK
The Quiraing is a landslip found on the eastern side of Meall na Suiramach which is on Trotternish Ridge on the Isle of Skye.
The escarpment of Trotternish Ridge was formed by a series of landslips and the Quiraing is the only part of the slip which moves. This means that the road, which runs around the base of the mountain, has to be repaired every year.
Quiraing comes from Old Norse and means ‘round fold’. Within the fold of the Quiraing is The Table, which is a plateau hidden among pillars.
