We went in the summer, and I must say, one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The day we went was, clear blue skies, no clouds and the array of meadow flowers were shining bright, it was dreamy. A camera is a must. Didn't see another soul, which was great. The walk back was "testing", no breeze, stagnant... More

Just a beautiful place to visit, so tranquil with beautiful views so be sure to be armed with your camera. I would put Neist Point as a must visit on Skye as not only are the views fabulous it is also interesting to see the Lighthouse and just imagine what it was like when it was a small manned community.

spent Valentine's Day here with my girlfriend and all I can say is wow the views are simply amazing we spent 3 hours here taking pictures and just admiring the views. Don't let the walk to get to the lighthouse put you off coming back is a killer but stopping every so often and it's fine. Highly recommend this place

Strictly for the enthusiasts. Trek is tiring for an average person. Steep incline - not recommended for people who cannot walk in cold/ breezy conditions - hell yeah - that is what you get in such remote part of the planet! Again - this location is for the enthusiasts - not for light walkers. Once you park your vehicle -... More

This is an amazing place for people who like views along with a little trek as well. The point gives you a beautiful and far away view of the horizon. It is best if you can view the sun rise/sun set from here. The trek is also not very cumbersome with supporting rails all through the zillion flight of steps.... More

Brilliant place to visit, my son went fishing (and caught) whilst we looked around - it is quite a walk to and from the car park but well worth it

Windy, blustery day but we had a fun time walking and shooting photos each hill and bend presented another long, very long path before reaching the lighthouse. be prepared to spend some time, this isn't a quick trip, but worth the walk.

The views here are excellent, Walking down (& back) to the lighthouse is a bit arduous though lol, but well worth it. A great place to take loads of photo's.
