Kyleakin Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Isle of Skye...

Until 1995 Kyleakin was the first place visitors saw of the Misty Isle after being ferried from the mainland. Now it is bypassed by the privately-funded Skye road bridge and has a pleasing air of tranquility.

The Bright Water Visitor Centre focuses on the area’s natural beauty and the importance of the nearby island of Eilean Ban, one-time home of the author and conservationist Gavin Maxell whose book on otters, ‘Ring of Bright Water’, was turned into a film.
