Make sure to head out the walkway nearest the road for the best view of the waterfall itself, but don't skip the pathway away from the falls and toward the coast - some of the prettiest cliff views on the island!

One of the good things about the Lealt Falls, Kilt Rock and Staffin Beach is that they are all easily accessible, and you don’t have to waste time on trying to find them. On top of that, each location has a small car park. All...More

Low clouds, wind and rain, the usual autumn weather I guess. That was what we got during our trip to the Isle of Skye. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy the landscapes and the area, but these falls where definitely a highlight.

This place is fantastic. Easy access not a hard walk. Parking was a dream. You can walk down to the ruin. Bring your dog for a walk in nature.
