Kilt rock is a stunning example of Skye's natural beauty. Jaggy cliffs and a powerful waterfall make the trip to Kilt Rock a great way to experience true Highlands scenery. As a big dinosaur geek I particularly enjoyed the informative poster about the area's pre-historic history. Weather in the middle of January was woeful but thoroughly enjoyable.

I didn't find this through any advertising but while on 'Google' checking out what is in the area, so I suppose a lot of people who do a circuit of the Skye peninsula don't notice the small insignificant sign, or see it and know it is so close to the highway. Anyway, I marked it for a look and was... More

We started our day with the falls. The combination of the falls with the sea made it a beautiful scenery. There is enough parking. We were lucky with the weather and saw a rainbow on the water. If you are driving past the region it's worth the stop. It's just by the road and well indicated. There are enough parking... More

This is just a little pull-over at the side of the main road, so it's worth stopping. The falls themselves are at a tricky angle to see clearly from the cliff-top, but the whole view is amazing anyway. If this was hard to find, it would only get three, but as a quick stop on the main road it is... More

The Waterfall was in its full bloom owing to the rains and it was fine day with visibility as far as you could wish for with a gleamy turquiose sea. Otherwise I guess it would be just as same as any other scenary in the Highlands!

It's definitely a worthy stop if you're on your way to the Quiraing. The rock can be seen from a viewing platform that has been fenced, and rightfully so, as the elements are/were strong due to the location of the waterfall. A very good photo location!

The natural scenery here is well worth a visit, but if you are managing your travel time, this is one place you might consider skipping or visiting briefly. We were there on a gloomy, cold and wet day. Consequently, the photo opportunities were not the best. Like many sites in Scotland, this one was not well marked with signage. There... More
