Neist Point is remote, but the views are amazing, even when the weather had closed in,on the day we visited. Be warned there are no facilities at the car park, Just cow pats,there is a concrete path and steps leading down to the point. It is a nice walk down but you are descending down a steep cliff path.

The walk from the car park is deceptive both in terms of both distance and climb, so be prepared for a bit of a hike. Its not for the totally unfit. I just took it slow and easy and was rewarded with some wonderful views. The Lighthouse has seen better days and one can only hope that its future can... More

Great walk and views. We were very lucky and had fantastic weather. Walked from our B&B ( Carters Rest) and then back along the cliffs. In all we were out for five hours

The lighthouse is closed for public and from some point of view can look almost like horror place, especially when the sky is dark as we had it. But the surroundings is beautiful and magical, recommend the visit.

We had sun all the way for this wonderful cliffside walk out to the Lighthouse. Waterstein headland rearing 1000 feet straight out of the sea,always grabs my attention. Neist itself is not so high but the air around it is filled with crying seabirds and diving gannets and the blue ocean surges and crashes onto black rocks. A thrilling place... More

We made our way through farm gates along the single lane roads to Niest Point. It's really hard to put a Sunset into words. The cliffs were glowing for hours in the setting sun while sheep quietly grazed on a plateau below us. Waves rolled in from the Outer Hebrides Islands and crashed against the cliffs as the sky shimmered... More

Stunning views, interesting landscapes especially if you go beyond the lighthouse. A little of the beaten track but well worth the trip.

The views here are stunning, especially if you're lucky enough to have nice weather! Definitely worth a visit although the return walk is quite a hike.

We were there on a bright sunny day. Love the 360 degree view. Involves lots of walking and climbing. Proper walking shoes are must. No SERVICE near by, so before heading for the point be prepared.

Seriously, not to be missed. The walk has stunning views from start to finish. The lighthouse is very interesting just a shame that it is not open to visitors. Dont underestimate the walk back, it is quite strenuous. We saw lots of wildlife including seals. We did benefit from visiting on a very warm and sunny day.
