So, I am unable to climb and walk far without assistance, however, this is worth the drive, even if you cannot make the final walk/climb to the point or lighthouse. The scenery is out of this world, the feeling is amazing. Go, experience, it is worth the scary road to get there, the scenery all the way is worth it.... More

Nice place to visit. You will need to walk around 2 km from the car park to the lighthouse, but the scenery is really fantastic.

My husband and I made the trek out to Neist Point on a VERY windy day in December 2016. The area is beautiful and very much worth the effort to get out there. There is a small car park at the top, which leads to the stairs which begin the initial part of the climb. For better or worse, the... More

We were here in March so it was quiet, beautiful day, lovely scenery. As has been said before there are quiet a few steps down, it's absolutely fine but it is steep going back up, so if your not the fittest you'll have to take your time. It's quiet safe though. Enjoy 😀

Car park is the last stretch of road on the west coast of the island. Parked up on top of a hill, you walk down a well set path and steps. About 2km there and back, steep steps. Spectacular views. Another must visit for Skye, cracking views at sunset.

Neist point is well worth the long journey down single track roads. When you get there you truly feel like you have reached worlds end. It's a great walk and stunning site which makes you feel truly small (in a good way). The views are breath taking and it's so peaceful. It was still fairly busy with tourists early on... More

Worth the long drive of single track roads and passing places to get there. We were very lucky with the weather the day we were there, blue skies and sunshine, and the views are spectacular. We walked along the headland from the car park to start with until we could see the lighthouse (and the outer Hebrides in the distance... More

Really interesting place to visit. The buildings are falling into disrepair but this somehow adds something. Natural scenery is spectacular and the journey to the car park takes you through lovely settlements of traditional houses (do visit the shop on the way which has everything!).

This is the furthest west point of Isle of Skye. It is a long up and down hike to get the first view of the lighthouse and the Atlantic. There is then a second significant hike to the point. We went on a cold and rainy day and didn't make the second hike. Recommend doing this on a nice day.

A glorious winter's day on Skye with clear blue cloudless skies we could see from the south of South Uist all the way to the south of Lewis, almost all the outer Isles in one. Slightly disappointed in not seeing any marine mammals or many birds but I'd like to go back later on in the year. Sensible shoes/boots and... More
