Tour Scotland Video A' Chuith-Raing Isle Of Skye Inner Hebrides

Tour Scotland video of A' Chuith-Raing on ancestry visit to Isle of Skye, Inner Hebrides, Scotland. The Quiraing, in Gaelic: A' Chuith-Raing, is a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternish on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. The whole of the Trotternish Ridge escarpment was formed by a great series of landslips; the Quiraing is the only part of the slip still moving, the road at its base, near Flodigarry, requires repairs each year. The name Quiraing comes from Old Norse 'Kví Rand', which means Round Fold. Within the fold is The Table, an elevated plateau hidden amongst the pillars. It is said that the fold was used to conceal cattle from Viking raiders.
