Neist Point, Isle of Skye

One of the highlights of my recent trip was to travel all the way up to Neist Point for Sunset. The sky didn’t fully deliver for a full red/pink sky but i could not complain too much. The full rich almost pastel colours were spectacular.

Neist Point is one of the most famous lighthouses in Scotland and can be found on the most westerly tip of Skye near the township of Glendale.
It was designed by David Alan Stevenson, was first lit on 1 November 1909.An aerial cableway is used to take supplies to the lighthouse and cottages.
Since 1990, the lighthouse has been operated remotely from the Northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh. The former keepers' cottages are now in private ownership.
In 1971 the lighthouse was listed as a Category B listed building.
