Woman plunges to her death at popular tourist attraction

Posted in: Personal Injury Public Place Accidents Wrongful & Accidental Death 

Emergency services were called at 4pm on Saturday after a woman, who had been walking with her partner, tripped and fell from a 100ft cliff. The woman was immediately rushed to Broadford Hospital on Skye, but was later pronounced dead by a police spokesman.

Viewpoint for extensive wildlife

Many visit the popular tourist attraction ‘Neist Point’ on the Isle of Skye every year. Being the most westerly point of the isle, it is very popular amongst tourists for its stunning views: being regarded as the best place to see the island’s extensive birdlife, alongside opportunities of spotting whales, dolphins, and even basking sharks. Scenes of Neist Point have also featured in award-winning films.

The 48-year-old woman had been on a walk, like many others do at this popular point, and had tripped over the edge.  A Stornoway Coastguard spokeswoman said: “We received a request from ambulance control for assistance to a female who had fallen 100 feet.

The spokeswoman added: “The coastguard helicopter was scrambled and she was taken to Broadford Hospital on Skye.

Accidents like this suggest that better safety features should be in place in such frequently visited tourist destinations.  No comment has yet been made by the woman’s partner.
