The Trotternish Ridge on the Isle of Skye

The northernmost peninsula on the Isle of Skye is known as Trotternish.

The Trotternish Ridge is the result of a massive landslip, and runs for about 19 miles, almost the full length of the peninsula.

Both the Old man of Storr and The Quiraing are famous geological features that have been formed as part of this landslip.

The ridge is a very popular destination for hillwalkers.  Rising to 719m at its highest point, it has a total of 13 named summits along its way.
