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.
