Kilmore can be reached from two directions. The Caledonian Mcbrayne ferry runs daily from Mallaig on the mainland to Armadale in Sleat. Kilmore is 2.5 miles north of Armadale on the A851. Visitors who arrive over the bridge to Skye should travel along the A87 until they reach the township of Skulamus. Then turn left on to the A851 southwards towards the Sleat peninsula. Guests may consider stopping in the town of Broadford to visit the local supermarket before continuing down the Sleat peninsula.
The junction at Skulamus is well signposted to both Sleat and the Armadale Ferry. From the turn off at Skulamus the trip is about 10 miles. The most prominent landmark in Kilmore is the large church which is right by the main road. From the Church head up the lane directly opposite which leads up a quite steep hill for 500m. The The Flora Macdonald Hostel is sign posted and guides visitors down a track on the left. At the end of the track, about 200m, you will see the Hostel. The local bus service also stops at Kilmore. The distances and road network in the north west of Scotland can often mean that travel times can easily be misjudged, Please call us if your arrival time is later than you expected..
