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...

It's definitely a worthy stop if you're on your way to the Quiraing. The rock can be seen from a viewing platform that has been fenced, and rightfully so, as the elements are/were strong due to the location of the waterfall. A very good photo location!

The natural scenery here is well worth a visit, but if you are managing your travel time, this is one place you might consider skipping or visiting briefly. We were there on a gloomy, cold and wet day. Consequently, the photo opportunities were not the best. Like many sites in Scotland, this one was not well marked with signage. There... More

The waterfall sits right next to a car park off the side of the road. I really liked this because you didn't have to walk a mile to see it! The waterfall is very pretty and the viewing area offers a perfect place to take photos! I wouldn't say this is a "must-see," but it was very pretty.

A small diversion on the way to Quirang, the Kilt Rock will give you an excellent opportunity to get a photo of the shores of Skye
