Neist Point, Glendale

4.7
#3 of 276 in Things to do in The Hebrides
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. Put Neist Point on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Isle of Skye vacation builder.

Something hard, but very pleasant views, especially at sunset. Given time, the area invites to roam its corners, cliffs and farms that make you want to stay longer.

    Well the parking is stunningly bad. Quite why the authorities haven't invested $100k in paving is beyond me. If you park before the cattle grid it's a short walk up the hill to the main path. Maybe 25...  more »
