We arrived here and parked in the afternoon not knowing what to expect , we followed the mostly flat but stoney path for 2.5km 50 minutes to arrive at the bothy , on the left of the walk you have great views or duntulm castle and surrounding area and also a small cotton field , at the top of the hill there is panoramic views all over the north west , it is beautiful. You can opt to scramble down to the other side to see the sea stacks etc and beach

Not alot of parking but worth waiting and walking across to the point. Amazing views there and back. Well worth checking out Erisco ruins in the way.

This was a lovely walk with fabulous views but be warned after rain sturdy footwear is required. We were suitably attired but you do have to pick your way through a well trodden path. But the views are well worth that and it’s not a difficult walk . A really exhilarating couple of hours.

The first day I went I hiked the bluffs above; the next day I hiked down to the lower level. It's a beautiful spot up or down. On a day where you'll see hundreds of vehicles parked at the Old Man of Storr, you may only find a dozen parked for this sensational spot. You want to give yourself some time to take in the beauty from various spots and angles. It doesn't look like much when you park the car and head in, but the beauty will emerge soon enough.

After setting out from the Car Park on this walk, we got slightly lost on the directions but it was a stunningly beautiful walk; the views were sublime and well worth wading through the Bog and Marsh (wear wellies or waterproof shoes!!) to reach the top. Unfortunately the route back on the coast was littered with rubbish which had been washed upon shore and could do with a tidy up but is a monstrous sized task! Unfortunately we didn’t get to see much of the wildlife, just a few sea birds, but would definitely recommend and hopefully you have more luck!

We visited this northern tip of Skye after reading about the coastguard's hut, a bothy which walkers can stay in overnight, in The Guardian. The walk from the nearest car park is quite a distance but it is worth it for the stunning views from the end of the peninsula out to Harris. We had blue skies so the view was particularly extraordinary. The Bothy is well maintained and rather delightful, but seemed very popular with young walkers in July so might get a bit crowded.

Take a bulging pack pack with drinks and sarnies. You will want to take your time sitting in the old coastguard lookout, now called a bothie. The views are simply stunning. Sadly this was probably the last time my wife and I shall take the 2.5 km walk to this simply stunning place as our friends, who we stay with have now moved to Inverness. Do not leave your camera behind and make sure you have proper walking boots. A wonderful vista will totally enthral you, but is not, in any way wheel friendly. You could see anything from submarines to dolphines to whales!

Whichever way you approach, the end is memorable. The view down to Rubha Hunish is unforgettable. The scramble down isn't as steep as it looks from above and is well worth the effort. To see the bothy on the cliff edge is a pleasure that in nature lovers generally you have a better quality of person than you tend to find in cities and life generally.

This is the northernmost point of the Isle of Skye. It is a wild area, with fantastic views all around the point. There is a small car park area near the road, and from there an easy hiking trail to the end of the cliffs. For a more challenging hike, take the trail that goes down the cliff - it's steep, but not as dangerous as it looks from the top. From every perspective there are wonderful views of the landscape and the ocean.

A great exhilarating walk along the cliffs to a fabulous viewpoint. You can climb down the cliffs if you are careful and once down, you can walk around surrounded by wildlife. We weren't lucky enough to see whales, but there were plenty of seals and cormorants! And could have spent hours there. Great day out.
