Kilt Rock

Kilt Rock is a famous geological formation located on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It is a cliff that rises up to 90 meters (295 feet) above the sea and is named for its resemblance to a Scottish kilt.

The rock is composed of basalt columns that have been formed by volcanic activity over millions of years. The columns are stacked on top of each other, creating a striking visual effect that has made Kilt Rock one of the most popular tourist attractions on the Isle of Skye.

At the base of Kilt Rock, there is a waterfall called Mealt Falls that drops 55 meters (180 feet) into the sea. The view of the waterfall cascading down the rock face is truly breathtaking, especially when viewed from the nearby viewing platform.

Kilt Rock is a must-see destination for anyone visiting the Isle of Skye, offering stunning natural beauty and a glimpse into the geological history of the region.

It is often combined with a visit to the Old Man of Storr and is approximately 40 miles from the Three Chimneys.
