A month ago, I visited Neist Point Lighthouse for the first time. Located nearly at the end of Northern Scotland, Glendale, Isle of Skye, it was simply the best view I ever witnessed so far in my entire travelling journal. From the moment I stepped out of the car, I was overcome with a sense of peacefulness.

However, time seems to move differently in Scotland. This place, used to be a viewpoint and the lighthouse base centre of Skye back in 1909. But now, the place becomes a free attraction for local people and tourists. You may only see the debris of the lighthouse, rocks and goats, eventually. After all, I wish I was equipped with a better gear for this one. Isle of Skye, this place feels like the end of the earth.
