There's a new gift shop being constructed at the end of the road to Neist Point, but at the moment the views and walks (including the walk to the vigorous walk to the lighthouse) are the only reason to visit. Those views, by the way, include a view across the Minch to South Uist.

Neist Point is well worth the drive. The abandoned lighthouse sits on the edge of the westernmost point of Skye, atop of towering cliffs. It's an amazing place that feels as though you are standing at the edge of the world.

Beautiful rugged walk to the lighthouse. Good for stretching your legs and blowing away the cobwebs!

A great walk, but not for the fainthearted! Fantastic views and a good workout before heading off for a great haggis lunch!

We went in the summer, and I must say, one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The day we went was, clear blue skies, no clouds and the array of meadow flowers were shining bright, it was dreamy. A camera is a must. Didn't see another soul, which was great. The walk back was "testing", no breeze, stagnant... More

Just a beautiful place to visit, so tranquil with beautiful views so be sure to be armed with your camera. I would put Neist Point as a must visit on Skye as not only are the views fabulous it is also interesting to see the Lighthouse and just imagine what it was like when it was a small manned community.

spent Valentine's Day here with my girlfriend and all I can say is wow the views are simply amazing we spent 3 hours here taking pictures and just admiring the views. Don't let the walk to get to the lighthouse put you off coming back is a killer but stopping every so often and it's fine. Highly recommend this place
