Along the road there are many stops for people to look at the view and take pictures, so I would definitely recommend for you to stop at this one and not necessarily the others, as the waterfall is a plus. It's really pretty (and high).

I was in two minds about stopping here, how interesting can a Kilt Rock be? Well it was more interesting than I expected. There really isn't too much else to say, there is easy parking and some interpretation which is of interest. This is really a five minute stop though; it would be longer if they burger van type cafe... More

The good thing is that it's very close to the main road and no walk at all. Gives pan aramid view of the sea and the waterfall!

Skye is a very large island but try and get to Kilt Rock if you can...amazing panorama and the waterfall is terrific. The geology of the area has created amazing sights here and also nearby...it's a bit of a drive from the closer areas of Skye but worth the extra effort.

Astonishing geology. A must-see on your visit to Skye but try not to go when the bus-loads of tourists are around!

Kilt Rock is a stunning waterfall off the cliffs of Trotternish on north-east Skye. There's not much more to see or do there, but it's definitely worth a visit while touring the area.

My husband and I traveled around England and Scotland enjoying everything. Kilt Rock on Skye was freaking amazing. The fact that you actually have to walk thru a sheep pasture to get there made it even more amazing. If you are on Skye you have to see it.

It had been raining heavily the days before our visit so the flow of water from the waterfall was terrific. Great place to spot wildlife - friends went the following day and spotted a dolphin in the bay. Super place for photographs. Just a word of warning. If it has been raining the car park and in places the path... More

I believe that i can't describe this place with simple words. you must plan to visit it and let your senses guide you.... personally, i felt my senses reach their limits!!
