Impressive view of the waterfall but nothing super amazing. If you're on the road and pass it stop, get out, and snap and picture. That's about all the time you'll need.

This is an easily accessible natural phenomenon, stunning to see and well worth the trip. Well sign posted and with interesting information about how the rock was formed geologically. Beautiful views across to Raasay, Rona and the mainland.

The rock cliffs resembling the kilt patterns with the Mealt Falls are a great sight. The official car park with its fencing will get you great views and good photo opportunities. You don't need to spend to much time, but even in the off season we found it to be a bit busy, wonder how this is in summer season.

Worth a visit if you're in the area. Can get busy and there is limited parking. Good views of kilt rock, though best seen on a clear day. Also worth crossing the road to see the views.

Visited in February when we stayed at the fantastic Duisdale hotel. We literally had 4 seasons in the 10 minutes we were there, but it is worth the short trip off the main road to have a look. As other reviews note, there is a small car park, and if it was busy, I maybe would be putting on a... More

Not much to do here apart from see the waterfall but it is well worth a visit as ver impressive. Car park is tiny so if more into walking I suggest planning this into your route.

We stopped here as we were in the area. The car park is smallish with no marked spaces but it is right next to the cliff so not far to walk to get a view of the waterfall and the rock. The scenery is really good. The waterfall is good to see from the edge. I would say this place... More

We visited kilt rock last year but didn't stay long as we were staying on mainland Scotland. As this time we had accommodation just up the road from kilt we saw it several times throughout the week. best times to go are sunset or sunrise it turns the place and views so atmospheric its stunning. another time I enjoyed visiting...

It was tipping down with rain when we visited but even that failed to dampen the wonder of these majestic falls. Watch the water crashing over the cliffs into the sea below, creating swirling mists as it hits the rocks below. What a sight. A must-do on Skye. We visited in September and it wasn't busy but I would think... More
