Lovely spot north of Ullapool. Geologically important with a small but interesting visitor centre. A fairly short but also fairly arduous walk up and around the crag rewards you with stunning views all round. However this is not for those who have walking difficulties. A great place to stretch your legs for a break.

We had the best weather when visiting Knockan Crag with Rabbie's small group tours and Grant Millar, our excellent guide showed us this amazing place. It really was a highlight of the island Skye. Wandered around just absorbing God's creation.

This was a fun brief stop on our way into the north western Highlands. There is interesting information about the geological history of the area & a clearly marked walking path.
