Watched the sun set, lighting up the rocks on Neist point to a gorgeous sheen! A place made for dreaming.

It was a worthwhile trip to reach Neist Point, the most Westerly point on the Isle of Skye. Once we parked our car, the wind that we were facing was ferocious. Within minutes it started to pour and we retrieved quickly back to the confines of our vehicle. As usual with Scottish weather, the rain tampered off within 20 minutes.... More

Neist Point is the most western point of Skye. The views are simply amazing - particularly at dawn, sunset or in dramatic cloudy weather. The reasonably steep walk back up to the car park is well worth it!

High black cliffs, seagulls and other birds and the Lighthouse. What else? Going to the lighthouse is very simple because it's a downhill path; the troubles may start with the return ... Get ready!

The lighthouse looks pretty run down now which is a real shame because it really is a beautiful place. Not for the faint hearted - take your time there are a lot of steps!!

Been to many beautiful places and still can't stop marveling to beauty of nature. Not short walk but even if it's not windy day it is tempting to walk all the way to lighthouse. Maybe on my next arrival cable lift will be fully functional.

This is also one of the most beautiful mother Nature spots on Isle of Skye, you can walk down from the car park, towards the lighthouse, it is not a easy walk, it takes some time, but yet! you get a beautiful view in return! from the top, you have a nice view, but be carefull! enjoy the view!

Scotland at its best. A long drive across Skye but lots to take in as the island is so beautiful. A nice walk down to the coast. Be careful near the edge as you look at the clear Scottish water. Lots of wildlife to be seen and you can see several of the Hebrides from the peak. Lots of photographic... More

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.
