Overview of Hostel
Skye Backpackers sits in the picturesque fishing village of Kyleakin, skirted by mountains and sea. It's a small, cosy hostel with an open fire in the lounge and a lovely backyard garden.
Come and stay in this wee village; the gateway to the Isle of Skye. With its lively pub atmosphere and quiet
By Bus: Take a CityLink bus to Kyleakin, tickets are cheapest if purchased ahead of time online. As the bus drives into the village, keep an eye out to your right and you will see us half way along the village green. Once the bus turns around and drops you at the stop, you're only a short walk from taking off that heavy pack!
By Train: The train line from Inverness stops at Kyle of Lochalsh. From the station walk up the hill, turn left over the train tracks, and left again just after the Woollen Mill shop. Citylink buses run approximately 3 times a day and will take you over the Skye Bridge to Kyleakin. From there, follow the bus directions :-)
If it is a nice day, you can walk over the bridge into the village, it takes about 45 minutes.
By Car: To get to Skye, you will come in on the A87 and pass through Kyle of Lochalsh before reaching the Skye Bridge. As you come over the bridge (admiring the views no doubt!), the small village you can see to the left is your destination. As you come off the bridge, turn left at the roundabout. Follow this road all the way down along the shorefront until the houses on the right drop back and you see a big grassy area - the village green! We are half way along the green, so take the next right (as if turning into Saucy Mary's) and right again to get to us. We have parking available onsite and if you're late to arrive, there's a free carpark just along the shorefront.
If you're having problems getting to us at any point, feel free to phone us on 01599 534 510 and we'll guide you in!.
