Great Views

Easy off the road location. Unusual formation does look like Kilts. There's is also a waterfall visible from the observation area. On a nice day it's a great view

I have visited this site twice now and on the second visit due to very strong easterly winds it made the waterfall spectacular. The geology on the more distant cliffs is fascinating but you need binoculars to fully appreciate it. Visitors now have a good car park and some interpretation to explain what you're seeing.

We visited Meallt waterfall in December. Further along the cliff from the fall is Kilt Rock so called because the rock formation is like the folds of a kilt. There is good parking and you get a reasonable view of the falls from the fenced edge of the parking. As we visited in Winter after a lot of rain the... More

Went here with a bus tour. Extraordinary view even though it was really rainy and windy. I was amazed by the sheer amount of water that runs through the small creek downwards to the cliff. It's a really amazing view and if you're short on time you should stop by this place to get some good memories of just looking... More

Visited Kilt Rock at the weekend on our tour around Skye. The waterfall was in full raging flow and didn't disappoint. The angle that you view the waterfall from makes it look like it appears from the rock. Would love to see the full effect from the sea as the rock formation looks like a pleated kilt and the waterfall... More

A great stop with tremendous scenic views looking north and south along the cliff side shore. The waterfall is very beautiful. When driving up east side of Skye, north of Portree, you can easily stop at the readily available parking lot and take in the sights in less than 30 minutes (We were on a tight time schedule --so this...

Kilt rock is a nice place to stop on your journey for lunch and just a quick break from walking! The rock is situated next to the sea, and the view point is wonderful. Luckily again we caught it at a quiet time of the year, and basically had the viewpoint to ourselves. I highly recommend stopping just to see... More

Pretty waterfall views and fun music (you'll understand when you get there). A nice drive along the way to lots of Skye highlights.
