Broadford is a small town on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.

Kayaks in Broadford Bay

Get in[edit]

By bus[edit]

Very regular buses travel to and from Portree and Kyleakin. There are also a few to Armadale.

Get around[edit]




There are a few local shops including the super-friendly Mor Books secondhand bookshop, the Co-op supermarket, and the Post Office.


There are many fine places to eat in Broadford. The selection includes Creelers, which is my personal favourite and is one of the better places to eat on Skye. Their Gumbo is both excellent and not for the faint hearted, but you can try before you buy.

If you want to picnic, the ingredients can be bought at the local Co-op supermarket, which also has a filling station.

The town has an excellent butchers and, so I am told a more than adequate Fish and Chip shop serving quite a wide range of fast food.
