Waternish Point is a remote and bleak yet beautiful spot, with wonderful sea views. The point is an excellent place to watch for whales and dolphins. Note that the walk crosses croft land and the crofter has requested that dogs should be kept on a lead.


Most of the approach walk is on a track, very boggy in places. The final approach to the head is over some pathless but reasonably dry ground.

Public Transport

None to start.
