HOW TO FIND BRAES RETREAT

We recommend guests have their own transport whilst staying at Braes Retreat. Therefore the following are directions for arrival by car:

  • On arrival on the Isle of Skye head for Portree on the A87.
  • Approximately 2 miles before you reach Portree, take the right-hand turning sign-posted ‘Am Bràighe, Braes, B883’. Please note this turning is on quite a sharp left-hand bend in the main road.
  • After half a mile turn right at the T-junction and then travel down this road for approximately 4½ miles.
  • Turn left at the road signposted “Gedintailor, Balmeanach and Peinachorran” and continue along this road, entering Peinachorran after 1 mile.
  • Continue along the road. It bends sharply to the right and then the signpost and entrance to Glamaig Cottage (Braes Retreat) can be found just on the left at the T junction.

From the mainland, Skye can be reached over the Skye Bridge at Kyle or via the Mallaig-Armadale ferry. If crossing at Mallaig, it’s best to book in advance (Calmac Ferries). Please note guests have occasionally found themselves stranded at Mallaig after the last ferry when following SatNav! Another scenic alternative is the Glenelg-Kylerhea ferry.

Postcode for SatNav is IV51 9LL.

There is limited public transport and it would also be possible to arrive by bicycle. Please contact us if you require further information.
