Kilt Rock, Isle of Skye

4.1
Marvel at views of a 61 m (200 ft) high sea cliff at Kilt Rock, named for its likeness to the folded pleats of a kilt. Gaze out across the Sound of the Isle of Rona and of Wester Ross. Watch the waterfall crash into the sea, with a view of Kilt Rock in the distance.

  • We stopped at this on our drive around the Trotternish Peninsula. For one stop you can see a spectacular waterfall which drops to the sea and further in the distance the Kilt Rock. Spectacular views.  more »
  • Good points - ample parking just off the main road - great views of the north and south coast Bad points - view point is not best angle for photographing the waterfall  more »
  • On the origin of the name Cliff pleated kilt skirt was like. You can see the cliff at a good angle from the parking lot, they flow waterfall. Feel free to access any car is. Be careful when leaving the car in the parking lot, sometimes really windy and the door is about to fly much stronger when there and find out.
