We're in the perfect location


The most popular way of getting to Skye is by road, as once you are on the island it is best to have your own car to go sight seeing.

...by Road

Once on the Isle of Skye, follow the main A87 road until you reach Portree, the Islands capital. From Portree head north on the A855 and follow the signs for Staffin. As you enter the township of Staffin you will be presented with a fantasic vista of Staffin Bay and the Trotternish Ridge. Continue down the hill into the centre of Staffin and then take a left turn onto the road marked Marrishadder, Maligar and Garros, which you then follow for a further 1.5miles, then take a right turn signposted Maligar. An Cnoc is the first house on the right.

...by Coach

Citylink operate a service to Portree from Glasgow or Inverness. You can travel to both these destinations by air or train or for Coach connections to other parts of the UK try National Express.

...by Air

Easyjet fly from London Luton Airport to Inverness daily.
Easy Car Hire available at Inverness Airport. British Airways operate a service from London Gatwick to Inverness
Inverness is about three hours drive away by hire car, alternatively you can travel from here to Portree by Coach or to Kyle by train.

...by Train

The night sleeper runs from London to either Inverness or Fort William. From Inverness, there are connections to Kyle of Lochalsh. From Fort William, there are connections to Mallaig (sometimes by the Jacobite Steamtrain). The ferry leaves from Mallaig to Armadale on Skye.

...by Ferry

Caledonian MacBrayne operate a ferry from Mallaig to Armadale. Alternatively there is a small car ferry (seasonal) which runs from Glenelg to Kylerhea on Skye. This sailing is definitely worth doing if only for the scenery!
