Usually pretty busy spot but it's worth it. Once you have a place for your car, walk down and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I was lucky enough to sit there on a rock bend in the lighting house in the sun and relax for an hour while looking over the sea.

A beautiful setting with stunning views, we were also lucky to visit on a bright sunny day. The access road is not for the faint hearted, it's single track most of the way and as it is a very popular location you need to be patient and courteous which in fairness most drivers were. There is also limited parking, so... More

One of my favourite places in the whole world! I've seen it in every weather - from rain&hail in November to sunny sunsets in July and it's always impressive. Make sure you're up to driving there and that you're there in late afternoon to admire the sunset. It's a view you'll never forget.

The access road to Neist Point is well signposted but it is single track with passing places. On busy days (like the day we went) it is jam packed with motorhomes (not a suitable vehicle for this trip) so be prepared to use your reverse gear a lot! The car park is small so most people park on the verges.... More

Our cottage was only 3 minute drive from Neist Point. It was beautiful there, the changing light and roaring sea. The only thing was that it was so windy I honestly thought we might get blown over! The car was wobbling from side to side! If visiting in winter definitely bring something to cover your ears, felt like they were... More

Neist point boosts amazing views. You can do a short trek to the cliffs or a longer and much tougher trek to the lighthouse at the end. We were lucky to reach Neist Point during sunset, ard 8pm in August, and it was beautiful! The cliffs gave a better picture of the lighthouse & scenery. But since we came all... More

The walk to the lighthouse from the car park is fab with stunning views of the cliffs and ocean. Apparently whales are sometimes spoted here but we were content watching sea birds soaring, we even saw a gannet diving for fish. Yes its out of the way, but well worth the trek!

Decided to go Neist Point for sunset following a reasonably clear day in order to see a good sunset. Arrived there and couldn't believe the sight we saw. Lovely views of the Outer Hebrides, one of the best sunsets I have ever seen. The drive there is quite a difficult one with narrow, twisty lanes but the result of that... More

The dodgy drive up to Neist Point was worth every mile as we descended the steep cliffside stairs and out to the old lighthouse. This is the kind of place you could throw a camera like a frisbee and still get a stunning photo. Sadly we saw no whales on our visit but the weather held out and we had... More

Neist point is the western most point of Skye. The drive to Neist point is quite a struggle because of narrow broken roads. But once you are there it is just gorgeous. You can park and go all the way to the point. It takes a while between going there, absorbing the views, taking pictures and coming back. Point to... More
