Neist Point lighthouse

Neist Point is the most westerly location on the Isle of Skye, jutting out into the Minch and providing shelter for Moonen Bay between it and Waterstein Head. The dramatic cliff-top scenery, not done justice in this photograph, has similar rock formations to that found at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, and is complemented by the 62 foot high lighthouse constructed by the famous Stevenson family some 142 feet above the sea. In operation since 1909, it was automated in 1990.
