The Quiraing, Isle of Skye, Scotland. Famous cycling climb.

Few places are as mystical as the west coast of Scotland, and The Quiraing on Trotternish, the northernmost peninsula on the Isle of Skye, has to be one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the UK. It's absolutely beautiful. The climb up Quiraing itself peaks at 15% with a classic switchback near the summit. The full climb is recorded at 3.8km, ascending 217m at an average gradient of 6%. Check it out in Simon Warren's 'Another 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs' - no.170. Skye is definitely one for the bucket list.

Have you ridden on Skye?
