The Mealt Waterfall plunges about 100m over a sheer basalt cliff straight into the sea on the Trotternish Peninsula of Skye. The waterfall is fed by a small stream draining from the nearby Mealt Loch. It is sometimes known as the ‘Kilt Waterfall’ after the Kilt Rocks over which it cascades. This is a popular attraction, marked as ‘Kilt Point’ on maps, and many people stop off here as they travel around the Trotternish Peninsula. These basalt cliffs form much of the dramatic coastline between Loch Staffin and the Ru-na-Barin. On clear days is is possible to see the Isle of Lewis and parts of the mainland of Scotland.
