Always set SAT NAV to Kyle of Lochalsh initially and then for Borve Highland.
DO NOT go to Mallaig.

  1. When you arrive at Kyle, drive over the Skye bridge onto the island and drive 35 km north on the A87 to the village of Portree.
  2. As you enter the village you will see a petrol station on your right. Shortly afterwards you will come to a junction turning signposted for Uig & Dunvegan. Turn left here.
  3. Head north on the A87 for about 3.5 miles. You will leave Portree and drive into the countryside.
  4. Look for the first right turn off the main road signposted 'Borve', turn right here. There is a plastic bus shelter on the right at the turn.
  5. Drive to the top of the Road and you come to a T junction turn. Turn right.
  6. At the top of the hill you will see a big shed on the left. Just as you approach the shed, turn right and follow the wee road down to Craigh na Dun.
