Quiraing Pass - The Road from Uig to Staffin on the Isle of Skye

Quiraing Pass - The Road from Uig to Staffin on the Isle of Skye

This narrow road passes through the Quiraing, winding through the landscape between the towns of Uig and Staffin.

The Quiraing, or Cuith-Raing, is a landslip on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It is 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.
