Travelling to Skye is part of the enjoyment of visiting this amazing landscape. The scenery that you will travel through to reach Coruisk House is breathtaking.
From Fort William take the spectacular road to Lochalsh (A82) via Invergarry and Cluanie through awesome Glen Shiel or
from Inverness take the beautiful road (A835, left at Garve on to A832, at Achnasheen left on to A890) to Lochcarron (left at Lochcarrron on to A896 and right at Auchtertyre on to A87 which takes you to Kyle of Lochalsh and over the bridge to Skye).
The journey by road from Inverness or from Fort William by car is about two and a half hours depending on the road conditions.
Turn left at Kyle of Lochalsh to come over the Skye bridge. At the first roundabout turn right (sign-posted Portree A87). Stay on this road until you reach Broadford.
Go into Broadford past the Co-Op supermarket on your right. Go on a short distance until you reach the left hand turn by the Broadford Hotel sign posted to Elgol (B8083). Elgol is fifteen miles down this single track road but there are plenty of passing places to give way to oncoming cars. You will travel past spectacular lochs and see the awesome Cuillin ridge. Look out for Blaven (Bla Bheinn) and watch for soaring eagles that have made Blaven their home.
Coruisk House is on the right after the road sign announcing that you have entered Elgol! A warm welcome, tea and home-made shortbread awaits!
