The Table, Quiraning, Isle of Skye, Scotland The Quiraing is a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternish Ridge on the Isle of Skye. 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. Quiraing: In Gaelic, Cuith-Raing. Comes from Old Norse Kvi Rand which means Round Fold. Within the fold is The Table, an elevated plateaud hidden amongst the pillars. It is said that the fold was used to conceal cattle from Viking raiders.
