There is a good view point overlooking the rock. If you have binoculars bring them! There were two abseilers travelling down, presumably to climb up this massive cliff. Skye has great geology, also go to the rocky shore at Elgol, walk along a few hundred yards and you will see another great cliff of air bubbles! Fascinating!

Definitely worth a visit! The rock formation is amazing, as is the waterfall and the view - the drive to the viewpoint is beautiful as well.

Just off the main road. Good car park. A 30 yard walk and you will see the unusual rock strata AND there is a waterfall tipping over the edge of the cliff straight down to the crystal clear sea. There is a little information about the cliff formation and the dinosaurs that are found in the layers, including some concrete... More

This is a wonderful viewpoint to see the truly magnificent cliff views. The parking is good provided that there are not too many tour buses. The snack van provides the best value hot filled rolls on the island and if the sun shines it is the perfect spot for a wee picnic.

Yes, it's a fine high waterfall and the Kilt Rock looks quite colourful but it is the coastline overall with an almost turquoise ocean and the peaks of the North West highlands across the sea which are the thing.The Skye coast here is stunning all the way. Drink in those views (which just happen to have a lovely waterfall and... More

The Kilt Rock Falls is an amazing thing to see especially when you see what it originates from. We were extremely lucky that we had blue skies and it wasn't too cold considering it was March. This is worth the drive but a warning and a request. If you haven't driven these roads before take care as they are winding... More

If you are on Skye, you have to stop there. The place is just next to the road going north from Portree. You just have to get from your car and take few steps to enjoy views of stunning cliffs and beautiful waterfall. I was there 3 times, twice very early to catch sunrise, and once in peak time (it...

Perfect little stop off by the side of the road. A few picnic benches available. Views along the coastal cliffs are just stunning. Kilt rock formation is amazing. We were very lucky to have brilliant weather and rainbows through the water in the falls. Not able to capture them on camera unfortunately. Worth stopping.

A really nice stop to stretch your legs. Waterfall crashing into the sea and some great views of Skye's rugged coast line cliffs.
