Located on the east coast of Skye, Sconser is a crofting community situated about half way between the Skye Bridge to the south and Portree, the island’s capital to the north. The township of Sconser is also where you can catch the ferry across to the Isle of Raasay. It is also home to Sconser Lodge – a small family run hotel and restaurant. Just a short drive to the north is Sligachan where you will find Sligachan Hotel open during the summer months with a bar and restaurant – and for the whiskey enthusiasts, probably the largest selection of single malts on the island to tempt you! Broadford, the closest village to the south and one of the main villages on the Island, is popular with locals and visitors alike, providing all the services you would expect of a thriving area, including a supermarket, selection of shops, restaurants and bars, banks, 24 hour petrol station medical centre, cottage hospital, primary schooling and churches. Portree is approximately 12 miles away and its facilities include primary and secondary schooling, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, hotels and a cottage hospital.
Sconser is an ideal base for holiday makers being fairly central on the Island with lots of lovely walks, beaches and places of interest to visit all within easy reach.


Travel south from Portree on the A87 for approximately 12 miles. Number 3 is situated on the left hand side immediately beyond the ferry terminal.
