We made a quick stop here to see the small waterfall and the ocean. It's a quick stop but also a good place to have a quick picnic before you get to the Quaraing. There's supposed to be a dinosaur foot print close by somewhere but we've heard that it's difficult to find, so you skipped that part.

A great little stop-off point if traveling to the north of the island - or doing a northerly circuit like we were one evening. It's only just off the road with a large parking area and walks if you have longer. Nothing prepares you for the view when you look over the railings. We didn't even know it was there,... More

It is a short stopping point. It doesn't take more than 30 minutes to fully take in Kilt rock. We planned to walk the Quiraing for most of the day but we stopped at Kilt rock on the way. We were lucky enough for a mist to roll in from the sea. I thought it was a change in weather... More

If it's windy, just listen. You can hear the rock sing as the wind whistles through openings in the rock. Regardless of if you can hear the rock sing, the views are fantastic. Waterfalls, ocean and craggy Scotland views.

It is not the most spectacular, but the ambience is just amazing. We were lucky enough to be there with a light rain and some mist. Magical. Highly recommended spot.

Beautiful waterfall views. When it is windy the railings 'sing'. Eerie but beautiful. Definitely worth a visit when on this beautiful island

Part of a circuit around the area but a definite stop point. I've never seen rock formation like it and it certainly matches the name. Stunning imposing cliff face and fierce waterfall after rain storms.

Stunning views or islands and landscape,good all year round. For best view of waterfall you need to go after heavy rain. In the summer it's still a very lovely area.

My picture of Kilt Rock sits on the wall next to my computer. The photo opportunities are vast and the hike is very easy. Might be a great place for a picnic. A day trip driving through the northern part of Skye could take in The Old Man, Kilt Rock and and Quaraing
