Kilt Rock

View Photos

Visit these sea-weathered basalt columns, where the colours of the rocks might even appear to be tartan.

Even the landscapes of Scotland follow traditional fashion. Indeed, the 90 metre Kilt Rock on the Trotternish Peninsula does look strikingly similar to a pleated kilt. Composed of sea-weathered basalt columns, the colours of the rocks might even appear to be tartan. And just as a man with a kilt might blow the bagpipes, this landscape makes some unusual music of its own; when strong winds blow many visitors have reported a haunting, beautiful sound. One might think there’s fairy folklore behind it, but it’s just the noise from the fence surrounding the lookout point.

From the cliff-top viewpoint you can also get a nice look at Mealt Falls, a waterfall that plummets 328 feet (100 m) over Kilt Rock to the rock-laden shoreline below.
