200 metres from the road is a small car park and then a very short walk of 2 mins to the spectacular view. Unfortunately it's so busy and everyone is trying to get in for pictures. An amazing natural waterfall and worth seeing.

It's very easy to get in, just beside the main road A855, about 2 miles south of Staffin, you can see a cliff that bears an amazing resemblance to a kilt, There is a good parking place and you can photograph both Kilt Rock and a small stream from Loch Mealt falling off the cliff into the sea.

small sign from the main road and you have to head along a path past a lochan to the small car park where the wind makes a haunting noise through the bars of the safety railings at the edge of the cliffs where you look over and take your photos from of the waterfall and Kilt rock. It's one of... More

Another majestic stop on A 82 in the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Sheep roam the countryside over steep cliffs with waterfalls cascading over into the deep blue ocean. Views don't get any better than this! There was a hot dog vendor at this site the day we were there (Easter) but we did not purchase so can't review that!... More

There is an overlook so you can see the Kilt Rock but if there is more than 5 cars in the lot it'll be hard for you to see it. Everyone crams to the one side to see it blocking the view from anywhere else on the overlook. There is such a small window of availability to see the rock... More

We were touring the island on a wet and windy day. We'd failed to see the Old man of Storr. From the road, because of the hanging mist, so this was another stop. I cannot walk far, but this was a relatively short distance from the small car park. Even on this grotty day, it was full though, so can't... More

Off the A855 there is a parking area (free parking - got to love that) it is not huge but people are coming and going all the time. Short walk to look out and view of the waterfall. A must if in the area.

We took ourselves on a tour of the island and were delighted with Kilt Rock. It rained heavily when we first go there so we decided to wait it out for a while. That "while" ended up only being 5 minutes. The majestic coast line of this part of the island is worth the drive up there.

A wild and windy day did not detract from this wonder. Breath taking fall of both the water and cliffs. A must see of Skye landscape. Look to the right to spectacular cliff faces.

It is a great stop, where you can see the famous waterfall and stunning views to the rocky shoares of the island. It gives wonderful image of Skye.
