A beautiful spot with lovely views. It is a little bit of a trek down to the lighthouse and headland but well worth it.

Don't miss that viewpoint if you are on Skye. Walk is very short and easy, and you will be rewarded with really picturesque landscape! Best to go late to catch sunset, makes a huge difference! (obviously if you are lucky and there are no clouds/rain/wind/etc :-D ).

We made it out here early to catch a sunrise and it was quite marvelous. Skye is imo the most picturesque place in Scotland that we visited. Neist Point was 2nd only to The Quairing hike in Skye in terms of what we enjoyed.

My wife and I visited whilst on holiday in the Isle of Skye, Neist Point is on of the most of scenic locations. The steps down to the furthest point are very steep and not for the faint hearted returning back up but well worth the effort even for an OAP like me ....My wife and I loved it.

Want a feel of the gusty winds and gushing sea with absolute view that lacks adjectives, then Neist point it is for your wish. The lighthouse is absolutly worth the walk/climb against the wind. There is also a flight of stairs down to the sea if you could spot it on the way of your climb hidden in the ends... More

We visited late October with my two young girls (5&7yo). Our motivation was the lighthouse and the hope to see whales and dolphins. We didn't spot any whales or dolphins unfortunately and the light house was a disappointment. My guess it was vandalized sadly. BUT the walk/climb&descent towards the tip of Neist point was spectacular. The views were magnificent! Well... More

Looking for a path to walk rather than across the moors, this is a well maintained path though there are a lot of steps that again are quite steep but it goes all the way to the lighthouse. Interesting collection of what we Welsh know as cairns that visitors have built just the far side of the lighthouse. Look also... More

This is on the most inspiring sites on Skye with a view out to Uist. On a windy day the waves crash up onto the headland and lighthouse which dominates the view. Also great fishing to be had.

Incredible fishing views and atmosphere. Go and enjoy. Fabulous for an able bodied person as bit of a walk down via steps.
