The view of the lighthouse from the top of the hill is just as good as walking all the way down to it. Just walk across on the hill, passed the little coffee shop, and you'll see all the way to the lighthouse and beyond.

Definitely worth the drive to walk down and hike back up this area. Beautiful views of ocean, cliffs and unusual terrain. The lighthouse is different than any other I’ve seen but the views of land and sea are the main attraction. No bathrooms but the...More

Both are just stunning. Parking is ok but oh how I wish that visitors knew the width of their cars. Clueless for the majority. This is a very beautiful place so peaceful and a place to stand and drink in the views even if you...More

Walking down to the Neist Point lighthouse is one of the many 'must do's' of our regular trips to Skye - 11 at the last count. It is a long narrow drive via Glendale to reach the parking area. Parking may be an issue in...More

Drove from Dunvegan, and it's a significant drive, especially once it moves onto single track roads & you're dealing with passing motorhomes. The road itself is not in great condition, which is a catch 22 - I'm sure the residents don't want it improved to...More

We visited this site on our first trip to Skye! The walk down to the lighthouse is steep, so be prepared to have to walk up again and try not to do in the rain, slippery! The view of the lighthouse on the high cliff...More

Breathtaking views. Easy walk compared to Skye's other hikes! Views are amazing especially around sunset. We were there in mid September and was not too busy at all. Would definitely recommend.

Skye is amazing - beautiful and unique. Neist Point is one such place. I find myself thinking of how few people have stood at this secluded place and about how rugged and eternal the landscape is.

Didn't make the walk to the lighthouse since we were short on time, but did climb down into the grass area where the sheep graze. Amazing view of the sea and cliff and was able to get an amazing picture of the cliff face with...More

Hi! It is safe. They have stairs with railings. So it prolly looks more intimidating than it actually is. Hiking from the parking lot all the way to the lighthouse, spending some time there for pictures and such, and then... More

No entry ticket required. Park up in the (small and rudimentary) car parking area about 200 yards beyond the new cattle grid on the final left bend of the track. The walk down to the lighthouse is about 400 yards along a... More
