Not for the faint hearted... I'm not great with heights but the view to the outer isles and the different coloured sky's were absolutely fantastic, never seen anything like it.

After a bit of difficulty we found Kilt Rock. We of course saw it from the shore and I must way we were a bit disappointed. We walked up and down the fence lined cliff a couple time to see if we were missing something. But no, the little stream that ran over the edge of the cliff was all... More

What really make the difference in Skye is how all the attractions are ready to be visited. Signs, parkings, photo areas, everything is arranged. This rock has an amazing waterfall into the sea. Probably one of the best attractions in Skye

It's a very beuatiful see against coast vista. If you get a sunny day, you are very lucky and will have amazing pictures. If it's rainy, wait 30 minutes and you'll be fine. spectacular vista, can walk by a bit, but great 10 -30 minute stop on your road up north.

Well worth a visit..lovely view and safe to look over the cliff. Don't bother with the mobile cafe as the Ellishader Art Cafe is just up the road.

Kilt Rock is well worth the stop for the breath taking views. The stop won't take long but make sure oyu give yourself enough time to really take it all in. We stopped here on way from Portree. I would say this is a most for an Isle of Skye tour.

Kilt Rock is one of the most beautiful and impressive waterfalls I have ever seen. We stopped here on a tour of the Isle of Skye and it was our favorite moments. It is breathtaking how beautiful it is. If you are touring the Skye you will want to make sure this is on your list of stops.
