Neist Point, Skye


This afternoon, I am posting information on the scenic viewpoint of Neist Point which is located on a remote, far west location on the Isle of Skye off Scotland’s West Coast.

Information on Neist Point

Neist Point is 12 miles west of Dunvegan and 34 miles west of Portree. Final leg of access is along a narrow, single track road via Waterstein.

In the right weather (not guaranteed) the cliff-side scenery is stunning.

There is also visible an impressive Stevenson built lighthouse from 1909.

The location is of interest to hikers.
