Neist Point is a very scenic location, especially good for sunsets. It takes some driving to reach, but can be combined with the Three Chimneys or Red Roof Café. There has been a hostel by the lighthouse, but the buildings now seem pretty derelict.

Neist Point is the Westerly point of the Isle of Skye. It is well worth the visit but visitors need to be aware of a few limitations. The road to it is single track with passing places, at the end of the vehicular access there is a small car park which is woefully inadequate for the volume of visitors. This... More

This is definitely worth the walk! The views and setting are breathtaking. I can only imagine the beauty of this spot at sunset. Great photo-ops of the cliffs and lighthouse!

My brother was the lighthouse keeper here for many years. Have spent wonderful holiday oily days with the the kids. Rock pools, fishing, great for kids. Quite a walk to get down to but a great holiday adventure. Think I may be biased, but love this place.

Well worth the walk down and climb the steps back , Wonderful sea views , the Outer Hebrides islands , and just generally wonderful views. The pathway is fine but one needs to take care in places and children should be well supervised , though i would not say it is a good idea for young children to visit. Apart... More

It is quite a long drive to Neist Point from Glendale. Single car road, which is pretty rough in places. There is a small carpark at the end and pathway leading to the lighthouse. We decided not to attempt the walk to the lighthouse as it was a very wet and cold day and the views limited. I'm sure would... More

The walk down to the lighthouse is rather challenging especially for older folk. You can choose whether to go and see the lighthouse close up or climb above it and completely enjoy the surrounding views. Weather needs to be good and clear othervise it could be a dissapointing visit.

One of the most amazing places I've seen. It looks like you reached the edge of the world and can't go further. Scenic landscape.

We visited here over Easter. Neist point is on the far west of the Island and has the most beautiful scenery. The lighthouse has seen better days, but you aren't really going for that. We sat on the cliffs looking out to sea and had a lovely picnic. Such a stunning place to just sit and reflect.

I visited Neist Point lighthouse for the second time last year with my grandmother (she lives on the island). Absolutely beautiful and definitely worth a visit - just wear comfy shoes as the stairs/walking in general are both intense!
