  • Information

    Kyleakin is a village on the east coast of the Isle of Skye. Its name comes from the Norwegian, as they ruled the island until 1263. It is also known as the gateway to Skye as it lies just the other side of the Skye Bridge. The bridge takes you across the narrow strait of Loch Alsh, from Kyleakin to the Scottish mainland.

    In Kyleakin you can visit Caisteal Moal the ancient ruined castle from the 15th century. The village of Broadford is also close to Kyleakin, lying a few miles north.

    The village has two general stores, as well as pubs and eateries to cater for visitors.
