Create an itinerary including Neist Point
A single, unassuming lane leads you to one of Scotland’s most popular viewpoints. Regular visitors insist that Neist Point, the westerly most point on the Isle of Skye, is never the same place from day to day, hour to hour. Don’t forget a camera with long-range capabilities. Whales, porpoises, dolphins, and sharks also frequently visit. Bring a jacket, a hat, and walking shoes. Be sure to take it slowly. Several steep inclines require a little extra time and attention. Use our Isle of Skye trip maker app to visit Neist Point on your trip to Isle of Skye, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • The journey alone is an adventure. The single-lane road is busy for this area and the alternative routes are limited. The car park is free and you get great views even on the hike to the lighthouse...

  • Nice place, very windy, steep path to get there but worth it
  • A must see while on Skye. Persevere with the single track roads and you will be rewarded with magnificent views at road end. Walk down from the car park is initially very very steep so do take care. Stay away from the cliff edges especially on windy days. The lighthouse itself is very prominent (of course) and the cliffs around it are utterly spectacular.
