Be prepared for an 'interesting' drive as you wind your way through Glendale and on toward Neist Point! What you see when you get there is simply breathtakingly beautiful. Just when you think you've 'covered' Skye, you find yourself in a wide open space, elevated enough to test your nerves and sense of balance. But if the height overcomes you,... More

It took us 3 hours to reach the place driving but all was worth it as we stepped out of the car. It is as it looks in the pictures, you can just stand the very last tip of the land and enjoy the vast, huge ocean in front of you. From the car park you need to select a... More

Absolutely fantastic views and well worth the hike down. Bit of a slog on the way back up but we had two young children with us and they managed perfectly well. Next time we would take a picnic with us to have down on the rocks.

I visited Neist Point on a glorious hot sunny day. The car park is small but I went late in the day so managed to get parked. The walk down to the lighthouse is very steep but the views are incredible. However I was disappointed to find that, unlike at Ardmurchan, the lighthouse is shut to visitors. They omit to... More

We visited twice, the first time in the hope to see some wildlife during the day and the second time to watch the sunset. You should wear walking boots or sturdy shoes as whilst there is a concrete path it is well covered in sheep droppings. We did see some people wearing flip flops but this is quite a steep... More

The climb down and back up is not for the faint of heart. IF you aren't in shape don't even think about it. It was a beautiful sight to behold when we climbed to the top of one of the pinnacles and well worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed the walk.

Up to Neist Point we did go. And the wind did blow. It was blowing rain into our faces like needles coming out of a machine gun. It was so bad, rangers would not allow us to walk on the path to the lighthouse. On a fine day, beautiful, craggy, almost unique, on a day such as ours? Go to... More

This is a wind blown remote part of a remote part of Scotland. The roads will be winding and narrow. It is likely to rain. It is on a headland. Very rocky spectacular coastline with enormous cliffs. It might be predictable therefore that the walk from the car park might be difficult. But this isn't. It is likely that since... More
