Cliffs at Neist Point, Skye

Neist Point is the westernmost point on the Isle of Skye. It juts out into the Minch and provides shelter for Moonen Bay between it and Waternish Head. The dramatic cliffs have a similar rock formation to that found at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. The point is also home to a lighthouse constructed some 43 metres above the sea. In operation since 1909, the light was automated in 1990.
