Quiraing Pass

Quiraing Pass

Quiraing Pass road is a very scenic drive on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternishon the Isle of Skye, Scotland. 

This single track asphalted road, with steep gradients and tight bends winds through the landscape between the towns of Uig and Staffin. The road conditions make it cannot be recommended in windy conditions or if it’s misty (low visibility).

This road is very exciting and sometimes very exposed and unsecured driveway in innumerable twists and turns. It’s extremely narrow and with 17% gradients. The road passes through the Quiraing, or Cuith-Raing, a landslip located on the Northern part of Skye (Trotternish Ridge). The entire ridge was created by a series of landslips over time. The Quiraing continues to move today, requiring yearly road repairs at the base.
