The walk down does look a bit challenging at first but there is concrete path and stairs the whole way and a handrail for over 50% of it. The views are spectacular we went on a day with 60 mph winds waves smashing against the rocks and the skin numbed with the cold but it was well worth it the... More

We love neist point in any weather. Dramatic views and very interesting to walk around the lighthouse. Great place to see Dolphins in their natural habitat.

The cliffs are breathtaking, the sound of the ocean is so captivating, the green landscape stays with you. Scotland is an amazing place!

We did the walk from the car park all the way to the Lighthouse and beyond to the shores. We were lucky to have a beautiful cold but sunny day in which to enjoy the experience and met very few other walkers. There is no longer active guest accommodation though there are interesting remnants of its former operations. The lighthouse... More

Our highlight during our visit to the island. We arrived one hour before sunset. The sky was celar and the sun was shinning brightly in the horizon. We recommend the rocky spot atop a cliff and right past the lighthouse. Just perfect. The walk back up to the parking lot could be tough.

Neist point looks quite stunning on the web, once you arrive its not quite as beautiful. The scenery is breath taking but the light house itself is run down. The walk to the lighthouse is very steep I would suggest do not attempt with small children!

Parts of the walk required going down/up steep stairs. When we were there in October, it was extremely windy making the walk/climb slightly hazardous. While we didn't manage to reach the lighthouse due to the weather, the surrounding coastal scenery was beautiful. If you're fairly fit and not deterred by the steep stairs, this is worth a visit. Just go... More

Stunning views and a great place to spot sea eagles! Rather a steep path and not for the faint hearted. Get there before 8am and you'll have the place to yourself in October before the hoards descend!

Many people visit the car park above Neist Point but do not realise from the literature that they read that they have to walk down to the lighthouse. This walk is fairly steep in places and does go up and down along the way. For seasoned walkers this is not a problem but for the 'tourist walkers' please be aware... More
