“Great walk and views”
Review of Neist Point

Reviewed 15 August 2014

I had a great walk there. Pretty isolated place. Quite a steep stair climb up and down but the lighthouse itself and the views of the surrounding coast are really great. Interesting piece of Coast this is.

It was a bit of a crazy drive to get there and parking at Neist Point is a fiasco, be prepared to do a 17 point turn at the end! But it is so worth it, breathtaking views of cliffs, sea and headland. The lighthouse at the last point is under renovation and it would be great to see it open up as accommodation once again. It's very remote and would make a lovely artist or writers retreat. The walk up and down to the lighthouse is manageable although a tough slog for someone who's not fit (me) but I made it and so did my husband who uses a stick due to an accident. There were others obviously much fitter taking it in their stride and others who were struggling a bit with the sharp inclines. If you're game, and you're prepared to stop and get your breath back occasionally, it's really worth it and what a sense of achievement when you get back to the top!

Nice walk to Neist point, and if your fit a wee hill to climb as well. Fantastic views and a chance to see the Basking sharks( if your lucky)

Oh jeepers - loved it loved it loved it - well worth the drive out - what an amazing island, and what an amazing location. No services or anything but don't go for that - go for the amazing views. We were lucky - mill pond sea, seals and heavenly views - Skye at its best. (don't forget your Smidge!!!)

If you are traveling to Isle of Skype where we found the best along the trip to highland, you must not miss Neist Point. However, you need to drive or join a tour as it is quite remote & don't think there is public transport. Happy sheep eating grass all the time was a plus. Can take beautiful sheep photo with great view there if the weather is good.
