Neist Point is one of the most famous lighthouses in Scotland and can be found on the most westerly tip of Skye near the township of Glendale.
During the cache hunt you will see stunning views of the high cliffs and the lighthouse itself: at sunset the view is made even more spectacular making this a top destination for landscape photographers.
Neist Point is situated in the West Coast of Skye in the area known as ‘Durinish’. The start of the walk is at the very end of the single track road near Glendale.
There is only the one safe route, so this walk uses the same path both ways down and back.
It covers a distance of 2.2 km. More time should be allowed for exploring at the lighthouse and we'd recommend a few breaks on the way back up the steep path.
The carpark is located at very end of the single track road 10.5 miles from Dunvegan (taking 30 minutes to drive).
There will be sheep grazing by the path, keep dogs on a short lead.
