Neist Point, Glendale

4.7
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.

Where to stay in Isle of Skye

If you have a car, you can stay almost anywhere on Isle of Skye and still be able to access the major highlights on a day trip. The main town of Portree offers the widest range of options, with a host of bed and breakfasts and inns offering cozy rooms in well-restored old houses. There, you'll enjoy views over Loch Portree and convenient access to any number of pubs and restaurants in town. For something a bit quieter, consider the coastal town of Dunvegan. If visiting during the warmer months--between June and September--reserve your room in advance.
