Historic castles, sparkling lochs, dramatic landscapes and rushing waterfalls all await you when you stay in cottages in the Kyle of Lochalsh. It’s a true gem of a holiday destination where a traditional and warm Highland welcome is assured.
The Skye Bridge, which connects the Isle of Skye to the mainland, is located adjacent to Kyle of Lochalsh, giving rise to the town being described as ‘The Gateway to the Isle of Skye’. Obviously, this makes it the perfect base from which to explore the scenic beauty and long history of Skye, but there is just as much to see on the mainland too.
Walkers are spoilt for choice here with such a fine array of trails through the Highlands to choose from. A full day’s excursion to the Five Sisters of Kintail, Scotland’s highest waterfall, is a wonderful experience, although the terrain can sometimes be tricky, but it’s also accessible by road. In fact, you do not have to be an able walker to enjoy the scenic splendour of the area; simply driving along the often-deserted roads that wind their way through the glens is an absolute pleasure.
The nearby village of Plockton is located just six miles way; this delightfully quaint seaside town that has been charming visitors for many years, with whitewashed cottages lining the coastal road and palm trees growing in the seaward gardens, the very definition of a picture-postcard village. Also nearby is the romantic and famous Eilean Donan Castle that adorns many tourist board brochures.
Enjoy incredible Highland scenery everywhere you turn and friendly locals everywhere you go, when you choose to stay in Kyle of Lochalsh holiday cottages.
