The day we went was pretty pretty windy which made the half hour walk (basically stairs, and the path way is neat and clear) a bit more difficult. is is easy to find the way, signals are visible on the road. There is a small car park.

Absolutely stunning spot, though I did see some rather dumb tourists taking pretty stupid risks to get pictures at the edge of the cliffs (one lady fell off them in June 2013) - but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to visit if you're on Skye. Amazing views, cliffs, the sea, the light, the nature, well worth the time it takes to drive there,... More

I had a great walk there. Pretty isolated place. Quite a steep stair climb up and down but the lighthouse itself and the views of the surrounding coast are really great. Interesting piece of Coast this is.

It was a bit of a crazy drive to get there and parking at Neist Point is a fiasco, be prepared to do a 17 point turn at the end! But it is so worth it, breathtaking views of cliffs, sea and headland. The lighthouse at the last point is under renovation and it would be great to see it... More

Nice walk to Neist point, and if your fit a wee hill to climb as well. Fantastic views and a chance to see the Basking sharks( if your lucky)

Oh jeepers - loved it loved it loved it - well worth the drive out - what an amazing island, and what an amazing location. No services or anything but don't go for that - go for the amazing views. We were lucky - mill pond sea, seals and heavenly views - Skye at its best. (don't forget your Smidge!!!)

If you are traveling to Isle of Skype where we found the best along the trip to highland, you must not miss Neist Point. However, you need to drive or join a tour as it is quite remote & don't think there is public transport. Happy sheep eating grass all the time was a plus. Can take beautiful sheep photo... More

Definitely worth the drive from Broadford. However walk is only for those who really ARE fit and able. I've got mobility problems and use a rollator or wheelchair, definitely not accessible. Managed to go down about 20 steps and took some lovely photos. There is a very nice restaurant/tea room in Glendale on the route: Ceiteags, who served very nice... More

It is a refreshing walk down and back with something to see from every angle. There are optional paths which shoot off from the main sidewalk so you can explore multiple views.

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
