Ardelve is a friendly village hamlet ideally situated for the facilities that Dornie has to offer including a post office, small shop, two hotels and a pub. The world famous Eilean Donan Castle is also found at Dornie and is popular with locals and tourists alike. Although the area is quite secluded it is also close enough to the local amenities of Kyle of Lochalsh some 7 miles away, where you will find all the facilities expected of a lively thriving settlement including a supermarket, petrol station, hotels, restaurants, banks, post office and facilities of a swimming pool and gymnasium, medical centre and dentists. Primary schooling is available at Auchtertyre with secondary schooling in Plockton. The Skye Bridge is located in Kyle offering easy access to the Isle of Skye and all the attractions it has to offer. A regular bus and rail service also operates out of Kyle making easier connections to Inverness, the capital of the Highlands some 70 miles to the east.


From Kyle take the A87 and after c. 7 miles take the right turning signposted for Ardelve and follow the township road for a few hundred yards. Take the right forked lane which goes down towards the shore. Continue on this road all the way down until you reach the beginning of the private road, Tigh Na Laraich lies directly on your right.
