Neist Point, Isle of Skye, Scotland

by Pascal Bobillon

Neist Point is the most Westerly point on the Isle of Skye, giving excellent views over Moonen Bay to Waterstein Head (pictured) and out over the Minch to the Western Isles.
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-birds including 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.
