Kylerhea Hospitality Accommodation Guide

Kylerhea Hospitality Accommodation Guide

Kylerhea village on the east coast of the Isle of Skye faces Glenelg across a very narrow strait, and was connected with the mainland by a car ferry.

The narrowness of the strait causes it to be swept at predictable intervals by strong rapid tidal currents. Despite this (as an old drove road shows), cattle used to be able to swim across from the mainland at this point.

The road to the ferry at Kylerhea is steep and narrow, but it has spectacular views of the mountains of the main-land.

The settlement of Kylerhea is located on the east coast of the Isle of Skye, in the Highlands of Scotland. It overlooks Kyle Rhea, which is a strait that separates Skye from the mainland of Scotland.

One of the greatest places in Britain to see otters, native sea eagles, seals, and herons can be found by taking a short walk along the shore to a viewing hide that overlooks Kyle Rhea. If you take this walk, you will find one of the best spots in Britain.

Rhea, a legendary figure from Celtic mythology, inspired the naming of this settlement.

There is a ferry that travels between Kylerhea and Glenelg, which is located on the mainland.

Since 1934, there has been a car ferry service that travels across the Kylerhea straits. Prior to that, the Kylerhea straits served as a crossing place for cattle for hundreds of years.

Over the course of several centuries, Kylerhea served as the port of entry for livestock that had been raised in various parts of the Hebrides and was destined for sale on the mainland. After arriving to the settlement, the rovers would wait for the tides in Kyle Rhea to be favourable for crossing.

People travel from all over the world to take a trip to the ferry, which used to be a significant crossing point for drovers transporting cattle to mainland markets. These days, this location is known for its tranquilly and its breathtaking views of Glenelg. Find a local inn, preferably a traditional Highland inn with a hospitable character and an open fire, as well as outstanding local Scottish cuisine, all of which should be set in a stunning setting with unobstructed views across the Sound of Sleat to the Isle of Skye. Stay in a vacation rental cottage that is located on the highly sought after Sleat Peninsula, also known as the garden of Skye, with indigenous woodland and abundant wildflowers, combined with the magnificent sea and mountain views. This is an ideal location for wildlife enthusiasts, as there are many woodland walks and the opportunity to glimpse the Golden Eagle, deer, Sea Eagle, whales, dolphins, porpoises, and many other species of wildlife that make this area their home. The hamlet of Ardvasar can be found in the southern part of the peninsula, and it offers accommodations in the form of a hotel and a community centre.

Within walking distance in the community of Armadale is the ferry port that travels between Armadale and Mallaig.

There are further conveniences, such as a gas station and a store, that may be found there.

Sleat is made up of a number of small villages, and the primary school for the area can be found in Ferrindonald, very next to the medical centre. The local primary school offers studies in both English and Gaelic.

Stay in a traditional holiday cottage, or a romantic pod just for two, or find a good range of quality hotels offering family or group holidays and restaurants to suit all different types of taste buds. You can reach all of these vacation properties within a short drive from the Skye Road Bridge or from the Ferry port at Armadale. All of these locations offer some amazing scenery amid the tranquilly and beauty of this area. Pay a visit to the gardens, Armadale Castle, and Museum of the Isles, as well as the contemporary Torabhaig Distillery.

The settlements are home to a variety of local conveniences and services, as well as primary schools and a beautiful network of hiking trails that extend beyond the villages to the hills, the seaside, and beyond.

Find a village along your travels that features a convenience store, a cafe, and a variety of motels and other accommodations to accommodate a wide range of budgets.

Over the Skye bridge, the local villages provide a more extensive selection of retail and service options, such as medical facilities and a post office. There is also a public hall, restaurants, a garage, a gym, a swimming pool, a harbour, and a marina, and you can choose to stay in a bed and breakfast, a self-catering cottage, or a hostel.

Hiking, climbing, sea fishing, sailing, and scuba diving are just few of the many different types of outdoor activities that may be enjoyed in this region; lessons are available for people of all ages and skill levels.

Broadford is the closest major village, and it is there that you will discover a broader variety of facilities. Additionally, the surrounding landscape is mostly untouched.

The Fairy Pools, the world-famous Kilt Rock, Flora MacDonald's house, and onwards towards the Red Cuillins and the magnificent Beinn na Caillich are all within easy reach from Broadford, making it an ideal location from which to explore the misty isle. Broadford is also a convenient location from which to reach the Red Cuillins.

Inverness, which is approximately 148 kilometres away, is the most important financial and commercial hub in the Highlands. It also features extensive shopping, leisure, and entertainment facilities, in addition to excellent road, rail, and air connections to all directions on the compass and beyond.
