Kyle of Lochalsh is a city in the Scottish Highlands. Whilst there are not that many actual sights in the town, it makes a good base for some nearby attractions.

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.

Get around

Kyle is small engough to get around on foot.



  • Go seal spotting on Atlantis - tickets from the Tourist Information Centre.





Get out

  • Plockton - a very attractive loch-side village a few miles away by train or car.
  • Eilean Donan Castle in Dornie - a classic (if slightly fake) Scottish castle at the edge of a loch. See above for buses.
  • Take the bridge to Skye
