The image top right is of the large free Car Park at Neist Point, most people drive up to the end, turn, then pick the closest space to the top.

The second image is from the Viewpoint up to the right of the Car Park where you get the best photos.

There is a good Path out to the Lighthouse with two fairly steep sections.

You can also hike to the top of the Hill just before the Lighthouse for great views, takes about 15 minutes to hike to the top, mind the Cliffs on the Hill though.

Neist Point Lighthouse was designed by David Alan Stevenson, with it first operated 1st November 1909, is open for visits some days.

From the Lighthouse you get great views of the Hill with its Cliffs.

You can walk about 1 mile east along the Clifftops for some amazing sights, an area popular with Rock Climbers, as seen in the bottom right 2 images, with more large images of the Rock Climbing from the Large Images link at the top of this page.

Other Attractions in this area are the Dunvegan Giant Museum in Dunvegan, Dunvegan Castle 1 mile north of Dunvegan, and Coral Beach 4 miles north of Dunvegan Castle.
