Sea waves crashing far below

Beautiful view of the rock and Mealt Falls. Also just south of here is Lealt Falls which is super nice--great view from the cliff.

Took a while to get there but was worth the trouble even though the weather was not great. The view across the sea is amazing and even though their were people there you could still feel the remoteness of the region

A lovely stop on the drive from Uig to Portree. The rock is fascinating and the waterfall just lovely. If the food van is there buy a hot dog or a hamburger. They are lovely people and the foodand prices are good.

We hopped the bus in Portree which took us on a two hour tour. We were able to get our at Kilt Rock. We were lucky it was a beautiful sunny day. We were overwhelmed with the beauty of this spot.

This is an amazing waterfall and is best to see when the sun is shining on the cliff face. The viewing point is quite good getting you right to the edge of the cliff. Great views for the cliff as well. We were spoilt by great weather though, which doesn't always happen. Access is easy.

Nice spot to take pics from, its a shame there is no path down the cliffs to get a better glimpse of the falls. I guess thats what preserves its beauty, otherwise tourists would swarm the place.

It's worth seeing and doesn't require a huge effort to visit. It's a 15 minute stop at best with some wonderful views of the waterfall and Kilt Rock.

We pulled into the overlook parking lot for the Kilt Rock, a really neat waterfall at the very edge of the cliffs of Skye, falling into the ocean. It is called Kilt Rock because the lava formations there resemble the pleats of a kilt, being vertical tubes stuffed together. They provide a decent overlook area for taking photos, just don’t...
