Coire Lagan Hike – Isle Of Skye

The best start point for the hike is Glenbrittle Campsite.

The narrow and very stony path will lead you through a beautiful landscape filled with pagan

If you turn around from time to time you’ll be rewarded with a lovely view on Glenbrittle Bay.

At the end of the path you’ll reach a small lake which can also be seen as the start point if you decide to head for Sgùrr Alasdair. Sgùrr Alasdair is the highest Peak of the Cuillins and the highest mountain on Isle Of Skye. The path starts on the left side, right behind the lake and you should definitely bring a climbing helmet for your safety.

On the way back you can turn right, right before Loch an Fhir-bhallaich and get to Eas Mòr Waterfall.

Old Man Of Storr – Isle Of Skye

Old Man Of Storr or The Storr is maybe the most popular tourist spot on Skye and one of Scotland’s most iconic places. The massive pinnacle is 48 meters high an has been featured in the Alien Movie “Prometheus” directed by Ridley Scott.

My try on The Storr started in Portree at around 8:30am – where I actually tried to get a lift…. but since not even one car stopped, I ended up walking there, which took me around 2-2,5 hours + 1hour to get to the top.

It was totally worth it and I would recommend the hike to everyone who’s traveling around Skye without a car.
