A liitle further away in Plockton the Plockton Inn is great, fabulous food and atmosphere. On Thursday and Tuesday nights they also have music nights where local traditional musicians come along and have a jamming session which is brilliant.

Hi there,

the local bus operates between Kyleakin and Kyle (mainland side of Bridge) roughly every hour until 11pm and therefore eating in Kyle does not require a car or a taxi, although you may still prefer the taxi for timings I guess - it's £6 each way with Kyle Taxi. Co.

In Kyle there are 2 excellent restaurants:

The Waverley Restaurant 01599 534337

The Waterside Restaurant 01599 534813

At the top of Kyleakin itself, there is the Taste of India, which is excellent too, if you enjoy Indian Cuisine 01599 534134

Down towards the pier in Kyleakin you will find Harry's Coffee Shop which serves all day until approx. 6pm - very yummy grub at great prices - we keep on trying to persuade him to do evenings - no success as yet!!

In Kyleakin there are 2 lively bars (Haakon Bar and Saucy Mary's), which also serve "pub grub" during the evenings - they have live bands on every weekend during the season.

For a quieter bar scene, there is the King's Arms Hotel bar - again serving food to the public along with their residents (predominantly coach tours) - between both the bar and their restaurant.

At the top end of the village there is also the MacKinnon Country House Hotel - again they have a bar and restaurant serving food in the evenings.

At Breakish, inbetween Kyleakin and Broadford, you can now find Red Skye Restaurant which is new & seems to be getting great comments so far!

In Broadford there is great food to be had at the Harbour Restaurant, Creelers Seafood Restaurant & the Claymore Restaurant, along with the Broadford Hotel which also provides good food and a great carvery on a Sunday!

Taxi is £6 each way in total for the car - NOT per person, but per taxi, which can take up to 4 people. Kyle Taxi's do have people carriers/minibuses that can take more passengers, but the price then increases slightly - couldn't tell you exactly how much!
