  • What an extraordinary place. I loved that this photo was not free but you had to limb a bit and had a casual 30min hike from the road. I would suggest getting there early as there will be so much people in the afternoon you won't enjoy it as much.
  • Great hiking place, but we didn’t reach the Storr stone, the hiking track is quite far, however there is no sign at the parking lot to inform the distance. Get yourself prepared and wear a proper hiking shoe.
