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

A good spot for photography, whilst admiring the unique rock formations. Easily accessible too, as it's only a few steps from the car park. Looking at the rocks, you'll feel like wearing a kilt and playing the bagpipes!

Just off the main road in north-east Skye this waterfall is fed from a nearby loch so it runs all the time, even in dry weather. Parking is just beside Kilt Rock and this three star attraction becomes four star because it is FREE!

This was a quick stop on a tour, but you can easily get great photos of the falls and the rock. I saw one person climb over the fence, which was stupid and dangerous (then he couldn't get back over and kept crushing his man-zone), so please don't ignore the safety fences....they're there for a reason. There wasn't much else... More
