“Love to go back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

But maybe not at New Year again! stunning scenery, but too wild that day to go down to the lighthouse. Didn't stop it being breathtaking. Can't wait to go back.

“Gorgeous in rain or sun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We have been twice - once in glorious sun and the second in torrential rain. On both occasions we have seen the magic int he view from this area.

The walks are spectacular and being able to spot wildlife whilst having a picnic made it even more special

“perfect view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

This place is absolutely stunning. If you thought that the rest of the island was picturesque, wait until you see neist point. Don't leave until you've been here! We came here because we heard it was one of the best places to see marine wildlife - we weren't lucky enough to see any, but the spectacular sunset more than made up for it.

“The Best Things in Life are Free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Hello Skyewalkers,

If you're planning a trip to Skye this is a must-see. My girlfriend, another couple and I went in October and luckily had incredible weather (18°C!) when the rest of the UK had the usual. It is a little bit of a walk getting down there, your effort will pay dividends though.

Neist Point is the most Westerly point on the UK you can get to without getting in a boat, it provides spectacular views of the cliffs and Outer Hebrides. We were lucky enough to see a School of Dolphins playing in the water and a huge Minke Whale coming up to catch a breath, two things you never see sitting in the pub back in Edinburgh.

If you're coming here on a nice day bring food, we didn't and had to leave at around four because we were starving. On a nice day you could literally spend hours here and watch the sunset (if you're into all that mush).

Overall an incredible day and all we spent was a few quid on petrol.

Cheers,

Nick

“Perfect at Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

This place is just perfect at Sunset, the views are spectacular. Its lovely for a daytime walk along the footpath and up to the Lighthouse too.
