By Rail:

There are two rail routes that can be booked, the easiest being to Kyle of Lochalsh via Inverness (with the opportunity of an overnight sleeper from London to Inverness) and the other is regarded as one of the Great Railway Journeys of the World from Glasgow to Mallaig via Fortwilliam.

Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh: The rail journey from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh is very scenic and takes about 2 ½ hours. From here there are regular Stagecoach buses  (Bus route Kyle of Lochalsh to Portree) to Broadford that will stop at the top of our short lane, a Taxi journey would take 10 minutes, or you can hire a car.

Glasgow to Mallaig: This rail adventure takes over five hours, but is worthwhile in daylight and good visibility. In addition to the regular train service, the Jacobite steam engine operates during the summer months between Fort William and Mallaig.
From here you need to take a ferry to Armadale, (30 mins) Check Calmac Ferry connections and timetables.

From Armadale it is 20 minutes by taxi, (see below) or there is a regular 30 minute bus ride from the pier to Broadford where you can be dropped off at the end of the lane. (Bus route Armadale to Portree).

By Bus:

There are regular Citylink Buses  from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness to Portree, which stop in Broadford and you can request the driver to drop you off at the end of our lane.

By Car:

The most direct route from the south is via Glasgow, up alongside Loch Lomond, onto Tyndrum, and Fort William via Glencoe. From Fort William follow signs to Spean Bridge, Invergarry, and Kyle of Lochalsh. Moeraki is just 10 minutes from here; over the famous Skye Bridge, (which is now toll free), proceeding along the A87 for 8 miles towards Broadford.

An alternative route is to follow the A9 from Perth towards Inverness and at Dalwhinnie, (just after Drumochter Pass) cut across to Spean Bridge on the A86 to join the A82 to Invergarry and on to Kyle of Lochalsh as above.
