Neist Point

Neist Point, Isle of Skye - Scotland
Neist Point (pronounced 'Neest') is renowned for its rock formations, which are closely akin to those at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. It is said that the causeway extends under the sea from Northern Ireland to the Isle of Skye. 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.
