Lealt Waterfall and Kilt Rock
17 miles north of Portree
This waterfall drops 300 feet into the sea. Often the water from the loch never reaches the ocean, but gets blown away by the wind. The spot is also a popular viewpoint for the Kilt Rock where columns of dolerite, rather like the black basalt of Staffa, form what appear to be pleats in the cliff. So dangerous is this part of the coast, that it has been wisely fenced off.
