As the Isle of Skye is a remote location road lighting is limited, we recommend planning ahead and arriving in daylight. Not only will this allow you to take in the spectacular views, but it will also make your journey more enjoyable.

It is quicker to follow signs to Kyle of Lochalsh and to drive across the Skye Bridge (toll free). It should also be noted that some GPS systems give directions from Fort William to Mallaig.  A ferry can be taken from here to Armadale on Skye, however, schedules are limited and it would be wise to check the timetable.
