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!

We cycled here from Husabost and were not disappointed with the views both on the journey and from the headland out to the Outer Hebrides. What was very disappointing was the signs for a four room self catering B&B at the Lighthouse which , when we got there , turned out to be a closed up sad old set of... More

A great walk and spectacular sunset view but be forewarned there are no restrooms along the way and the lighthouse appears to be closed and boarded up after the storm damage. But definitely one of the highlights of our trip (Aqua explorer being the other). A note to the local council - portable toilet and shuttle bus would seem a... More

The walk was a lot longer than expected with steep down/up hills which were quite tiring. Even though, the scenery was so nice and the fog was rolling over some of the hills. The lighthouse itself is a bit rundown but a really nice walk to do as the views are great. Would recommend.

A former hostel used to run in this light house and I guess we were expecting to see it and that the lighthouse therefore would be in good shape. However, it was in rather bad shape probably due to the rough weather at Neist Point. Possibly a more valuable place to visit for lighthouse fanatics, but not for me.

This is a beautiful and breathtaking spot on the most westerly part of Skye. It is a good walk down to the lighthouse via lots of stone steps. Will probably take 20 mins or so to walk there and maybe a bit longer back as you are going uphill. The car parking area is small but definately worth a visit.... More

Neist Point is just a great way to spend a few hours, the walk down from the top of the road is easy, though it's a bit more of a challenge walking back. During August there is a good chance of seeing Minke Whales from the shore. Close your eyes for a moment if you listen hard enough you might... More

Me and my friends came here, and were immediately taken aback. The view are spectacular, there is wild sheep and lambs roaming freely amongst us and the cliff side is just wonderful. Will definitely be back to show other people how amazing Neist Point is - it's a must to go just to see the views at least, but I... More
