The township of Kylerhea is located in the south east tip of the Isle of Skye opposite Bernera and Glenelg on the mainland. During the summer months the community owned ferry boat, Glenachulish, operates a regular service across Glenelg Bay to the mainland. The Glenachulish is the last manually operated turntable ferry in Scotland and featured in the film ‘Maid of Honour’. Kylerhea residents receive a discounted fee which makes the services of Glenelg including the pub and shop easily accessible during the summer months.
Kylerhea is located some 10 miles from both Broadford and the Kyle of Lochalsh on the mainland. Broadford offers all the amenities you would expect of a thriving area with a supermarket, 24 hour petrol station, many shops, hotels and restaurants and with facilities of a medical centre and cottage hospital. Primary schooling is available in Broadford with secondary schooling in Portree some 25 miles to the north. Similar services are also offered in the Kyle of Lochalsh together with a public swimming pool.
The Skye bridge and the local ferry in the summer months provide easy access to the mainland. The location offers all the advantages of rural living with many hill and coastal walks, mountain trails and places of interest to visit both on the Isle of Skye and the mainland beyond.
