The Old Man of Storr is located on the north of the Isle of Skye. Its beautiful scenery and unique landscape make it a hotspot for visitors and hikers, alike.
The famous rock formation was caused by a massive ancient landslide, which left behind these fantastic features and a large pinnacle that stands high and can be seen for miles around - the perfect birthplace for a legend!
One tale describes how the Old Man of Storr is the thumb of a giant, who was buried with his thumb sticking out of the ground, creating the rock which we see today.
The hill has featured in several movies, including The Wicker Man (1973), Prometheus (2012), and Snow White and the Huntsman (2012). A must-see for 'movie buffs'. For more film location spots in Scotland, have a look at some of our tours here.
