Kilt Rock, Isle of Skye

4.2
#5 of 18 in Nature in The Hebrides
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Isle of Skye holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kilt Rock and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    The view in the photo is easily walked to and I'd recommend climbing down to the beach level to get views of the waterfalls. You'll need good shoes to do this part though.  more »

    The waterfall is beautiful. Very particular. But what disappoints me that there s a parking lot before the waterfall displayed which leads to a most beautiful place of the waterfall. What still stands out is on the peninsula. Lovely to visit by car and stopping at every open space

    Kilt Rock is a marvel, weather is wet and cold though August, but it is worth, the views are spectacular, we pass through Inverness, but we do not stop, we decided it deserved more it worth going to Loch Ness, which is very large, there are over 3000 Lakes, so we went through the five sisters to reach Loch Ness. Glen Coe is spectacular, a valley which has a sad history. In the Highlands or Highland we slept in Portree, a beautiful village, I say to walk by it. Also, it is worth making a stop at Pitlochry. After spending three days with a guide named Miguel Roman "Travelling around Scotland", of which keep a great memory and that he gained the affection and admiration for their knowledge of the whole group, were four couples, all friends, we went to Edinburgh and there we spent four great days, not stopping to see things. Edinburgh but will talk later.
