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.

The stairs down and up are worth the view of the lightohouse. If you're in a good condition, climb up the hill and look at the whole lighthouse from the top.

Drive took approx 1 hour from Portree but well worth it for the fantastic scenery on the most westerly point of the island. Steps and climb not suitable for everyone but well worth the effort.

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!
