We got here via a minivan tour, and I'm so glad we made it to this far west spot on Skye. And I'm sure I enjoyed it more because I didn't have to drive to it myself on those single-lane roads. Do yourself a favor and hire a local--you may luck out and hear some good stories along the way.... More

When me and my family went it was a whiteout with wind and rain . although the weather was terrible , once you started the walk we were able to see the ocean and cliff sides. Absolutely stunning ! The walk is fairly easy but beware of slippery rocks when raining.

I liked a lot to walk toward the white lighthouse. on the way back was a bit tough! Since the light house was closed, I did not go up to the house due to the lack of time. The surrounding nature is just fantastic, I felt like I was in the movie.. like wuthering heights?

The walk down to Neist Point is quite exciting, but the lighthouse and buildings are neglected and have seen better days. It's not clear whether they're due to be refurbished, but access is fenced off and there's debris all around.

I agree with the other reviewers, you do have to drive on a one lane road. But I found the driving manageable, and the other drivers courteous, with ample pull-offs when you do meet another car. And pretty cool, some of the sheep come out and walk on the road too! Back to the attraction, it is a bit of... More

Having purchased "Isle of Skye - 40 Coast and Country Walks" by Paul & Helen Webster prior to our visit, (which I would also highly recommend), this was the one place that I wanted to visit. It's the westernmost headland on the island and the views are absolutely stunning, described in the guide as, "feeling like the very edge of... More

Beautiful area with an easy hike to the light house. The stairs may be a pain on your way back but the whole trip is worth the effort. Amazing views once from many different vantage points. Take your time and enjoy the hike.

Went to witness a sunset on a clear day at Neist Point. The drive-in is long and stressful, as you will have to drive about 30 km from Portree, before continuing on a hilly single-carriage road for another good 30 minutes. The single-lane road itself is dangerous as dozens of sheep and cows litter the road through the drive. The... More

Difficult to get parked and a lot busier than expected given the remote location, but the cliffs were fantastic and it was a good walk to the lighthouse.

Once you have managed the drive to the car park and hopefully have been able to park then the walk out to the lighthouse is wonderful if a little steep! The sea birds are numerous on the cliff faces and it is worth taking binoculars. The light house is getting a little worse for wear but is worth the walk.
