If you are on Skye, you have to stop there. The place is just next to the road going north from Portree. You just have to get from your car and take few steps to enjoy views of stunning cliffs and beautiful waterfall. I was there 3 times, twice very early to catch sunrise, and once in peak time (it...

Perfect little stop off by the side of the road. A few picnic benches available. Views along the coastal cliffs are just stunning. Kilt rock formation is amazing. We were very lucky to have brilliant weather and rainbows through the water in the falls. Not able to capture them on camera unfortunately. Worth stopping.

A really nice stop to stretch your legs. Waterfall crashing into the sea and some great views of Skye's rugged coast line cliffs.

Kilt rock is a stunning example of Skye's natural beauty. Jaggy cliffs and a powerful waterfall make the trip to Kilt Rock a great way to experience true Highlands scenery. As a big dinosaur geek I particularly enjoyed the informative poster about the area's pre-historic history. Weather in the middle of January was woeful but thoroughly enjoyable.

I didn't find this through any advertising but while on 'Google' checking out what is in the area, so I suppose a lot of people who do a circuit of the Skye peninsula don't notice the small insignificant sign, or see it and know it is so close to the highway. Anyway, I marked it for a look and was... More

We started our day with the falls. The combination of the falls with the sea made it a beautiful scenery. There is enough parking. We were lucky with the weather and saw a rainbow on the water. If you are driving past the region it's worth the stop. It's just by the road and well indicated. There are enough parking... More

This is just a little pull-over at the side of the main road, so it's worth stopping. The falls themselves are at a tricky angle to see clearly from the cliff-top, but the whole view is amazing anyway. If this was hard to find, it would only get three, but as a quick stop on the main road it is... More

The Waterfall was in its full bloom owing to the rains and it was fine day with visibility as far as you could wish for with a gleamy turquiose sea. Otherwise I guess it would be just as same as any other scenary in the Highlands!

we didn't manage to see as much of Skye as we wanted, due to a very bad weather. it was raining heavily and the winds were very strong. if not Kilt rock , the trip would have been a fiasco. its absolutely beautiful. strong winds rushing from a point view bars sounded like a horn music, which created a very...
