It’s not hard to find Legend in Skye and everything about the Old Man of Storr feels legendary! Storr is the remnants of an ancient landslip that stands on the Trotternish Peninsula and I don’t think there is anywhere else in the world quite like it. I wasn’t surprised (but was incredibly excited!) to see the Old Man of Storr hit global cinema screens not only at the beginning of Ridley Scott’s epic film Prometheus but also in the equally epic (but not quite as good – but still pretty cool) Snow White and the Huntsman.
Like many of the famous spots on the extraordinary Isle of Skye, The Old Man of Storr is popular and you have to join the conveyor belt of tourists and sight seekers to see it. But don’t let this put you off because it really is awesome to stand in the presence of and if you persevere, the higher you ascend the quieter it becomes!
