Wave Watching at Neist Point

We went to Skye with friends on Sunday, because we knew from the weather forecasts that a deep low pressure system with strong winds was heading into Western Scotland from the Atlantic. The idea being that we would head for the coast and hopefully see a rough sea.

So we headed for Neist Point which is up on the north west of the island, on the Duirinish peninsular.

It poured with rain all day but we where so lucky because as we reached Neist Point the sky cleared and there was a beautiful sunset. However Neist point is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, there are the most incredible cliffs along the shore with waterfalls cascading down them. And as the sun went down all the rocks where lit by a golden hue.

The sea was rough as we expected and we stood on the rocks in front of the lighthouse watching the waves crash in until it was almost dark and we could stand the cold no longer.

If you're ever on the north end of Skye go and see Neist Point.
