Wherever youâre travelling to this year, thereâs always an abundance of landmarks to tick off your itinerary.Either way, gazing down on the dramatic streaks of pink and orange that fill the sky, along with the twinkling lights of the city is truly an amazing experience.Itâs open all day but many flock to the area in the late afternoon to secure a viewing spot on the edge of the cliff for optimal selfie taking and sunset gazing.Teetering on the edge of a 35 foot cliff, Rickâs Cafe is the prime spot to watch the sun go down; with a live reggae band filling the air and an extensive cocktail menu.But sometimes the most spectacular views can be found by simply looking up at the sky.Klong Dao Beach is a highlight, with many choosing to grab a seat at the Indian Bar as the sun goes down and stay put for the fire show afterwards.Many choose to make the trip from Fort William (youâll need to take the bus to Mallaig; where you can then take a ferry over to the Isle) and we recommend basing yourself at Fort William BackpackersÂ a cosy hostel housed in a Victorian building.
