We are 23 miles from Skye’s capital, Portree, North Duntulm, which is at the north end of the spectacular Trotternish peninsula. By road, we are 135 miles from both the Highlands capital, Inverness, and Fort William. Both journeys take approx. 3.5 hours through some of Scotland’s most breath-taking scenery and are well worth the drive.
From Fort William to the Skye Bridge From Fort William, the A82 passes through Spean Bridge and alongside Loch Lochy to Invergarry. At Invergarry turn left onto the A87 and continue your journey to Kyle of Lochalsh (Skye Bridge) passing through Glen Shiel, Shiel Bridge, Dornie and Balmacara. This route will also take you past the impressive Eilean Donan Castle.
From Inverness to the Skye Bridge Leave Inverness on the A82 to Drumnadrochit and continue onto Invermoriston where you then turn right onto the A887. After only a few miles the road meets up with and becomes the A87 leading directly to Sheil Bridge as above.
From the Skye Bridge Follow the A87 across the Skye Bridge, turn right at the roundabout and continue on the A87 where the route will take you through Broadford and onto Portree. Here, you can take the A87 route to the port of Uig, follow the signs from Uig to Staffin (a right turn before reaching the Ferry terminal) and continue through Kilvaxter, Hungladder, Duntulm Castle and when passing Kilmaluag look for the Aird/An Aird signpost where you turn left and continue for less than a mile where you will see Aird cottage on your right. Alternatively, you may take the A855 from Portree via Staffin, continue past Flodigarry and when passing Balmaqueen look for the Aird/An Aird signpost and turn to your right. The Staffin route will take you past the Old Man of Storr, Lealt and Kilt Rock Falls.
