Cruising by Kilt Rock & Mealt Waterfall

 

The intriguing sight of the 90m-high Kilt Rock sea cliff can be seen while sailing by Trotternish, the Isle of Skye’s northernmost peninsula. The cliff gets its name from the patterns within its basalt columns, which form a striking arrangement similar to a pleated kilt.

Together these landmarks provide a unique audio-visual experience. It is even said that one can hear an eerie, organ-like noise from the area on a windy day, due to the holes in the lookout point fencing that face the sea.
