Location

Ardmore is a small crofting township which forms part of the larger area known as Waternish on the north west of the Island and home to one of Skye’s oldest hostelries – The Stein Inn. Other local attractions include the award winning ‘Skye Skyns’ – a working tannery, the Lochbay Restaurant, a dive centre and art galleries. The closest village is Dunvegan some 11 miles away which has good local services including shops, hotels and restaurants and the world famous Dunvegan Castle. The Island’s capital is some 25 miles to the south east and has all the services and facilities you would expect of a growing town including secondary schooling and a cottage hospital. Primary education is currently offered at Knockbreck school about 2 miles away.

Directions

As you pass through Waternish and having passed through Hallin (and the sign for Geary) you will eventually come to a fork in the road. Take the right hand fork and follow the road until you go round a sharp left hand bend. 8 Ardmore will then be the first house on your right.
