I went there on what seemed like a pretty mild day. I stopped at Skye Weavers on the way (also totally worth it). It started raining while I was there and by the time I was at Neist Point it was starting to really come...More

if you love lighthouses - follow Neist Point super view, power of sea, lonely sheeps climbing the hill over the lighthouse - all the puzzle parts for a zen time and contemplation

The very dramatic coast line can partially be seen from the car park, but to see the lighthouse you have to climb down hundreds of steps (there is a handrail)...worth the effort, I’d say

We went there with Rabbies tour. A long drive is required to get to the west part of the island. When you arrive, you could go up to the hill to see the lighthouse from a distance or go directly down to the lighthouse, which...More

Neist Point Lighthouse will not be suitable for everyone, the path to it is relatively steep and tricky - if the weather is less favourable - but there are steps and rails to help. It is about 30-40 mins from the carpark. If you can...More

Wet and windy walk down a cliff and across to the lighthouse for some of the most stunning views we have seen. Next time we will do it at sunset.

The walk down the steps and back is much easier than it looks with fabulous views from the lighthouse. An interesting, but narrow roads drive from Husabost - must be challenging in summer. Call into the shop at Glendale which is an Aladdin's Cave.

The reason: hundreds of steps up and down. But absolutly worthy. Check it out! The lighthous is very old but seems still to be in use. Probably at summer time you can visit it from inside. The sourrounding coast is full of interesting birds. Watch...More

Beautiful location. Advise not taking the long walk to the lighthouse, view is much better to walk up the hill to the right of the little building (gift shop?) towards the waterfall. Amazing view!

Neist Point is one of the most famous lighthouses in Scotland and is at the most westerly point of Skye near Glendale. It's an easy 45 minute walk down to the lighthouse and a beautiful location to watch the sunset.

Definitely no street lights. Take torches as it can be very steep and you need to be very careful on the way back

You can just put in neist point in maps on your phone and it will take you there. The road takes you to it and you can park along the road. I think this is the post code. Iv55 8wu.
