Really interesting place to visit. The buildings are falling into disrepair but this somehow adds something. Natural scenery is spectacular and the journey to the car park takes you through lovely settlements of traditional houses (do visit the shop on the way which has everything!).

This is the furthest west point of Isle of Skye. It is a long up and down hike to get the first view of the lighthouse and the Atlantic. There is then a second significant hike to the point. We went on a cold and rainy day and didn't make the second hike. Recommend doing this on a nice day.

A glorious winter's day on Skye with clear blue cloudless skies we could see from the south of South Uist all the way to the south of Lewis, almost all the outer Isles in one. Slightly disappointed in not seeing any marine mammals or many birds but I'd like to go back later on in the year. Sensible shoes/boots and... More

The walk to Neist Point and its lighthouse is reached from a car park at the top of the cliff. The marked path consists of a steep slope made up of steps and sloping path. It is definitely not for anyone who is unfit as the walk back up the cliffside is VERY steep! The weather was dry and grey... More

We got here around lunchtime, the sky was clear and the sun was out giving us great views. The walk is only short but very steep coming back to the car park. Well worth a visit.

A little longer than it looks but really a great hike with the reward of cool lighthouse and sweeping views of the coastline. Don't be afraid to continue to the water and walk the rocks if it's not too boggy.

Another windy windy cold winters day that we visited Neist Point. The walk down is easier...down hill all the way. It was so windy waterfalls were being blown back up in the air. Again the effort was worth it, a must do on your Isle of Skye visit

This place is a bit of a drive (depending on where you're staying) but absolutely worth it. There is an enjoyable walk to reach the lighthouse and all the while you will be rewarded with beautiful views and a fresh ocean breeze. We saw an amazing winter sunset.

Wowee! The winds were so strong I could lean back into them without falling over! But the view at sunset was just spectacular - even on our cold wintery day. We trekked down the bluff to overlook the lighthouse and were treated to red, orange, purple skies, blue and white shorelines and green rolling hills. Absolutely picturesque. Make sure you... More

No matter which direction you look, the scenery is so beautiful - the cliff, the sea, the vegetation, the sheep, the rocks. And you can suck in the views from whatever point you decide to stop along the easy walk from the parking area to the lighthouse. Do not forget to head west also towards the sea after parking to...
