Neist Point and Lighthouse

Neist Point and Lighthouse

The point is regarded as the best place on Skye to see whales, dolphins, porpoises and basking shark. The sea around the point is teeming with sea-birdsincluding gannets, black guillemots, razorbills and shags.
The causeway at the tip of Neist Point is home to several species of rare and unusual plant, including alpine plants such as saxifrages.
The sheltered bays of Neist Point are also excellent places to fish, with fourteen species of fish being caught in Moonen Bay.
