The scattered community of Valtos is located on the west coast of the Trotternish peninsula at the northern end of the island of Skye in the Inner Hebrides. The settlement gives its name to the Valtos Sandstone formation, a Mid Jurassic (167 million year old) rock formation, the type-section of which is found in cliffs to the north. Kilt Rock, a series of vertical grooves and columns in the cliff face resembling the pleats of a kilt, lies 2 miles (3 km) to the north.
