Waterstein Head, Skye

The highest sea cliffs on Skye are to be found along the west coast of the Duirinish peninsula, some 6 miles west of Dunvegan, near Glendale. Waterstein Head, pictured, rises to 296m (967 feet) above Moonen Bay with the dramatic cliffs offering one of the best places to view seabirds such as fulmars, terns and guillemots. The views from the headland are breathtaking, not only to the pounding waves below, but across the Bay to Neist Point and over the Minch to the Western Isles.
