Log #365. Got to the top car park early to ensure a space, then followed tourist path initially before breaking north to follow sheep track up Maoladh Mor. Enjoyable cliff-side ascent to cairn, then cloud forced to take a bearing and beeline for the trig. Good condition stone-built pillar, with cap missing. Carefully retraced steps to cairn, then followed track north to Fir Bhreugach. Quick hop over stile then brilliant walk south to the Quirang. No further ascents for me, content simply to follow tourist path between the huge formations. Very busy after that point, and the small scramble at NG443684 was quite slipperly. No issues though, and enjoyable walk back to the burger van for some breakfast. [ExP-253/MiP-32/Rev-3/BM-25/IS-34/Other-18]

Arrived in Skye late afternoon to visit my son (lucky him living and working here!) and as such a stunningly beautiful evening had to go walking. Took the circular walk over the shoulder of Maolach Mor, overlooking the Quiraing and onto the summit cairn of Meall na Suiramach (Hill of the Maiden). Trig point 250 metres inland on a flat summit but with stunning views east to the mainland, south to the Cuillins and onto the Outer islands. Trig built on stone with no cap, plug or facebracket. First stone built trig. Returned by the lower path to see the Quiraing close up.

Gorgeous spot, did a circuit including the putting green. Well worth it.

Can't believe I haven't been here before. Glorious place on a beautiful day. Almost perfect apart from the crowds...

This pillar is built out of stones( see photos) and there is no flush bracket. A lung breaker of a walk, great views of the Minch and the mountains of Harris

Nearing the end of a great day walk along the Trotternish Ridge. The flat summit is not the most inspiring but the views are still grand.

Views the best I have ever seen on a really clear day. Excellent walk through the turmoil of the lower slopes first.

Visited while revising guidebook to Isle of Skye, on my last day of four weeks on Skye. As pointed out by someone else...the correct name is Meall na Suiramach, not 'Quiraing'.

Great views. I love these natural stone trigs! Walked round impressive Quirang and then across flatish plateau to trig!

Stonebuilt, no cap or plug, no FB - never was one according to OS. Flat stony summit, just about a view despite rain.

Above the Quirang, the OS dont always name their survey sites after the hill. Plug missing, otherwise stone built and in good shape.

Why is this one always called "Quiraing"? It is on Meall na Suiramach - close to, but well above the Quiraing.

No FB present, nor any sign that it ever had one. Couldn't tell for sure, as the pillar is made from stones, rather than moulded concrete.
