Broadford (and surrounds)

Broadford is the second largest settlement on Skye after Portree. At 5 minutes’ drive, 20 minutes bicycle ride or a pleasant walk from Oystercatchers, it has a 24 hour petrol station that sells fuel for the wood burner and several shops. You will find the full range of shops, hotels, cafes, including an excellent large Co-op, Post Office, Chemists, Bank, Cottage Hospital, Tourist shops, churches and restaurants. Further information may be found at Undiscovered Scotland. The buses to Portree, Kyle and Armadale all stop off here.

Recommended for meals out/take aways are:

  • The Red Skye Restaurant – Upper Breakish – varied menu with local specialities. For details:
  • Deli Gasta – a great wee coffee shop as you enter Broadford from the Bridge.  For more information please see
  • For Fish and Chips we recommend you go back to Kyle of Lochalsh and visit Hectors to Go or you can eat in at his Hector’s Bothy up by the carpark if you want to sit down.
  • The Taste of India near the roundabout for the Bridge/Kyleakin is superb for either take away of eat in.  For menus and further information go to
