    How to get there
    Airport: Inverness or Stornoway: 231.0 km
    Railway: Kyle of Lochalsh: 90.0 km
    Ferry: Uig: 10.0 km
    You can fly into Inverness, Edinburgh or Glasgow airports, from worldwide destinations. From there you can hire a car to get around the area, or you can get the train to Kyle of Lochalsh, and then onwards via the local bus service. Or, if you like, you can get a Citylink bus from all towns and cities in Scotland - try the journey from Glasgow to the centre of Portree via the side of Loch Lomond - a beautiful journey.

    If you are driving, come onto Skye, over the (free) bridge (no ferry, unless you come onto the island via the Mallaig/Armadale ferry), and keep heading north towards Uig (where the ferry goes to the Outer Hebrides). From Uig head for Kilmuir, up the hill behind Uig. Keep on this road, passing the Whitewave Outdoor Centre on the right - with the wind turbine, 2 white churc...

West View is the perfect spot to relax and get away from it all. In the morning we woke up to the sounds of sheep baa-ing in the pasture just beyond the small back yard, and in the evening we watched the swifts chasing their dinner. The views to the water are stunning –especially at sunset. The house itself is... more
