Get in

By Train

A few trains a day run from Inverness. These trains can also be used to visit Plockton.

By Bus

Several coaches a day run to and from Fort William, Inverness and Glasgow and contunue on to Portree on Skye.

Local buses run every 1/2 hour over the Skye Bridge to Kyleakin on Skye, from where you can pick up more local buses.

During the summer, there are also frequent buses to and from Eilean Donan Castle. At other times the long-distance coaches to Fort William and Inverness can drop you off / pick you up here.

Kyle is small enough to get around on foot.
