This headland, famous for its lighthouse, is set on a beautiful but remote stretch of coast. If you take the most direct route from the east coast of Skye, you will travel along a single track road with passing places, so the coast road around the north of the island is preferable. When you reach the nearest point on the... More

This view. The sea breeze. The sheep. The land and the water. Don't miss this. Lovely at any part or the day particularly late evening. Not a ton of parking. Free of charge. Again, don't miss this one its stunning.

This was included on our 4 day tour. It is so popular that there were not enough parking spots. People were parking up and down along the road to get there. But it is so worth it. In fact, this is one of my favorite places on the tour. We did not walk to light house. Instead we walked up... More

A nice view point for photographers, I carried out 7 month old son up and down the steps to the lighthouse hidden behind Neist Point and it was a steep old climb back up!! Got some stunning photos of the coastline but there is little else here to keep you entertained for more than an hour. A long drive from... More

It was a lovely walk and the views were amazing! The descent had some steps, but the views from all sides were breathtaking. Well worth it!

This is a "must do" when visiting the Isle of Skye. It is the iconic photo you think of, and visiting it in person is better than any photograph you have seen. Be aware that if you want the iconic photos, you need to walk up along the ridge from the parking area, not down the trail to the lighthouse... More

We made it to the Neist point together with 3little toddlers in the group. Take a good care while taking the steps as the stairs is quite steep and the long walking journey to the point. However, the tiredness of climbing up and down the stairs is forgotten when you see the beautiful scenery at the point.

Our last stop on the Isle of Skye was Neist Point Lighthouse. This is one of the most famous lighthouses in Scotland, and it's on the most westerly tip of Skye. The lighthouse itself isn't really much to see, so this was really just a long walk out to the lighthouse to give you a good vantage point of the... More

Long drive out but great scenery. And hubby likes lighthouses. Feels like we were standing at the edge of the world. Feels surreal until we see the cute sheep. Love it.

Instead of hiking down to the lighthouse, we actually hiked up the hill above the parking lot to get pictures. We worth it and an easy hike.
