Kilt Rock is well worth the stop for the breath taking views. The stop won't take long but make sure oyu give yourself enough time to really take it all in. We stopped here on way from Portree. I would say this is a most for an Isle of Skye tour.

Kilt Rock is one of the most beautiful and impressive waterfalls I have ever seen. We stopped here on a tour of the Isle of Skye and it was our favorite moments. It is breathtaking how beautiful it is. If you are touring the Skye you will want to make sure this is on your list of stops.

Just before Staffin, after the Old Man of Storr, on the northeast corner of Skye is a stopping off point with a view of a rather impressive waterfall dropping off the cliffs into the sea. A beautiful spot worth a stop.

Lovely scenery. Impressive view. Stopped here on our way back to Portree. Nice for a short rest stop and my son loved the plaque on the ground with the dinosaur footprints.

The Kilt Rocks and Mealt Falls were on our list of must-visit places on Skye and they did not disappoint. It helped that the sun was shining, maybe, but the scenery was just amazing. We had the most fabulous day exploring the Quiraing and surroundings.

Kilt Rock is located on the coastline - just to the east of Loch Mealt near the township of Ellishadder in the Trotternish Peninsular. We visited this attraction while on holiday in the Kilmaluag area of Skye. It is quite an impressive sight - to see a waterfall falling vertically down to the rocks and the sea below. From the...

We called in here as it was on our route around Skye. The rock formations and waterfall are attractive, and worth a detour but probably not a long one.

Best after heavy rain to see the waterfall in full spate. The geology of the rock formations, fossils and especially dinosaur foot prints and Skelton finds are facinating. The best thing though is the sea and cliff stretching forgot miles. A beautiful, rugged and strangely inspiring landscape.

Really good to see Kilt Rock from the view point. Easy access & lovely dramatic scenery. Skye is full of dramatic landscapes, and kilt rock is well worth the stop off.

Nice waterfall and views of the ocean. It is completed by the blue water, mountain view and blue sky. Parking is available, you can step down and enjoy the views.
