About this spot
This is one of the most recognised landmarks on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. This 37-meter tall rock pinnacle is known as the Needle. It is located in the heart of the Quiraing landslip in Trotternish. Although it is well known to many photographers, it is one of the less photographed locations due to its location and the level of physical difficulty.
