“Amazing place”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Absolutely stunning spot, though I did see some rather dumb tourists taking pretty stupid risks to get pictures at the edge of the cliffs (one lady fell off them in June 2013) - but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to visit if you're on Skye. Amazing views, cliffs, the sea, the light, the nature, well worth the time it takes to drive there, on the one track roads, in every way.

“Great walk and views”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

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.

“Well worth the effort”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

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!

“Wonderful view.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

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)

“What a Beautiful Place”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

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!!!)
