Directions for car drivers
Entering Skye from Kyle of Lochalsh over the recently completed Skye Bridge which is now free of charge.
Regardless of your starting location, you will approach Kyle of Lochalsh on the A87. As you enter Kyle of Lochalsh the Skye Bridge is clearly signposted. Keep on the main road and go straight through the traffic lights in the centre of the town until you reach the bridge. Depending on weather and time you will get spectacular views from the bridge of Lochalsh, the Islands of Scalpay, Eilean Mor and Raasay.
After crossing the bridge you will arrive at a small roundabout. Bear right and head for Broadford still on the A87. This is the main coastal road that leads to Portree. Follow the road for approximately 23 miles going through Broadford, Luib and Sconser until you reach Sligachan.
Cross the bridge at Sligachan and turn left leaving the A87 and joining the A863 which goes inland, crossing from the east coast to the west and passing near the famous Talisker Whisky Distillery. Proceed along the winding road for approximately 23 miles passing Drynoch and going through Bracadale, Struan and Roskhill until reaching the outskirts of Dunvegan.
Approximately one mile from the centre of Dunvegan you will arrive at a white chapel in a small hamlet called Lonmore. At this point leave the A863 and turn left onto a single track road (B884) signposted for Glendale and Skye Silver. After approximately half a mile the road bears sharp right. This is still the B884. Do not go straight on or you will end up on a dirt track leading to Orbost! Follow signs for Skye Silver and The Three Chimneys Restaurant and Niest Point Lighthouse. You will pass through Skinindin, Colbost and Glendale. We are approximately one and a quarter miles from the centre of Glendale. The guesthouse is situated next to the turn off for Neist Point Lighthouse.
