We are called the remotest farmer’s market in the UK, with good reason.
Its very simple, and you’ll feel like you’re in a car advert. Its just a long way.
From Inverness (3 hours) or Glasgow (6 hours) hop on to the A82 (Cities located at opposite ends of this road). Turn right/left respectively onto the A87 and keep going, crossing the Skye bridge, through the Cuillin mountains, all the way to Sligachan. Turn left onto the A863 and keep going until you reach Dunvegan. At Dunvegan turn left into Glendale. The Glendale road is 7 miles, single track and the most beautiful bit of the journey, but then of course we’re biased.
Inverness or Glasgow. Its actually quicker to get to the Outer Hebrides because they have their own airports. But we do have a bridge.
Wherever you’re coming from, you can only get as far as Kyle of Localsh (the location of the Skye bridge). There are no trains on the island. From here your options are an hours drive through mountains by bus or car. People do bike it but usually only when they’re on a serious cycling holiday, its not a conventional day trip option.
If you get as far as Duvegan you’re doing well. After that, despite our sizeable community, there are no public transport options. There’s the school bus at the end of the day, but even that stops in the summer. Therefore you need your own hire car or a taxi. Timetables, connections and taxi services can be found in the icons below.
