Creag an Fhèilidh
Kilt Rock

Creag an Fhèilidh, or Kilt Rock, is a famous sea cliff.

Named after the basalt columns that are said to resemble the pleats on traditional Scottish plaid, Kilt Rock is a breathtaking site. From here take in the vertical cliffs, a thundering waterfall and an uninterrupted view east to the mountains of the Scottish mainland.

Kilt Rock is a 60-metre high sea cliff. Its tall columns are made of hard basalt rock which stand on top of softer sandstone. This part of Skye was formed over millions of years.

Our extraordinary landscape has been shaped by the soft Bhaltos sandstone made from tiny remains of rock, earth, animals and plants, and hot volcanic lava which forced its way through the softer rock.
