Grade 2 / 2.5 miles / 1-2 Hours
Park at the road end to Neist Point. A short walk visiting Neist Point, the dramatic westernmost point of Skye’s headlands. Good concrete steps and path to the Lighthouse and a short walk over grass to the interesting rocks that break away into the sea like a collapsed city. Good for scrambling, playing, fishing and watching the wildlife.
Cliffs for abseiling. ‘An t-Aigeach’, is the high cliff rearing up midway along the path. Views are to the Islands of Uist, Benbecula, Canna and Rhum, Moonen Bay and the imposing Western Cliffs of Skye. This is also the site of a 1800C shipwreck, hence the building of the Light House. The Light House is now automated and the huge Fog Horn is still there but no longer in use.
