The Old Man of Storr is a large pinnacle of rock that stands at the summit of a steep hill, known as the Storr. The rock formation is believed to have been formed by a landslide that occurred thousands of years ago.

Hiking to the Old Man of Storr is a popular activity for visitors to the Isle of Skye. The hike is considered moderately challenging, with a steep ascent and descent. However, the reward for reaching the top is the breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape, including the Isle of Raasay and the mainland of Scotland.
