Getting to Skye

We are an island destination which makes our race all the more unique.  Travel however is pretty straightforward and we are more accessible than you might think.  We have a toll free bridge linking us to the mainland, as well as regular ferry sailings from Mallaig.  You can get to the Isle of Skye from the Highland capital of Inverness.  Inverness Airport has interconnecting flights from London airports.

You can also travel to Inverness from London, Edinburgh or Glasgow by train (for some journeys sleeper trains are an option). The city has good bus links to the island or you could go by train to Kyle of Lochalsh.

The Kyle train terminates close to the Skye Bridge which links the island with the mainland, and the train connects with bus services.

It is also possible to hire a car from Inverness Airport or upon arrival on the Isle (please book well in advance as hire cars are limited)
