Sunset at Neist Point

One of the most spectacular views on Skye, we had visited a few years about but wanted to come back to experience sunset and it was gorgeous.

Getting to Neist Point takes around 45 minutes to an hour from the Dunvegan/Portree area, depending on how confident you are at navigating the winding backroads of Skye. Once there, it's a fairly steep walk down a paved walkway to the peninsula--there is a guard rail for you to hang onto if you need it. The cliffs and the lighthouse... More

Very nice walk if you don't have any physical restrictions. If the weather is sunny, you will get nice photos here. Beware of the sheep and cow poo - there's a lot of it!

Worth the long walk upto the summit. The views were worth the very tiring walk. Quite a long way, so walking boots and warm clothes as well as food and water required :)

At he end of a very small single track road we reached a small parking lot. The surroundings at Neist Point are stunning. Waterfalls go over the cliffs into the sea, the cliffs themselves are quite spectacular and after a short but rather steep walk one reaches the picturesque lighthouse. Plan at least three hours all in all.

We loved our visit to Neist Point. Such an amazing, wild, beautiful spot. There's nothing there but the place itself, so be prepared for a walk (steep in a couple spots, but not too strenuous overall) and enjoy the wild outdoors of this wind swept, picturesque peninsula.

This is one of the most scenic places I have been. You literally feel like you could be at the edge of the world! However, the hike is not for the faint hearted. We have a one year old pre-walker and my husband had to carry him the whole way on his shoulders. I am also 7 months pregnant. In... More

Too misty at the point when I was there.Could not see much view though. It was very secluded and should beware those sheeps running along the single pass road. Need to walk around half an hour or so to the lighthouse.The walk to the lighthouse was not difficult.Overall it was a fine experience.
