Location, Location, Location...
The Old Croft House is in Aird, on the Sleat Peninsula, which is the most southerly tip of Skye. There are two main routes to get there: via the bridge, from Kyle of Lochalsh, or via ferry from Mallaig.
From Kyle, the cottage is approximately a 40 minute drive from the bridge. Once over the bridge you follow signs to Broadford, and then take the turning off left(A851) just before you reach the town, signposted to Armadale. You follow this road for approximately 25 minutes, until you reach a turning on the right, just before Armadale Pier, for Ardvasar.
Once you have driven through the village of Ardvasar (passing your 'local' shop and pub), the road becomes narrow and you follow it until you come into Aird. Passing the 'Aird' sign you cross a cattle grid, then continue until you see a phone box on your left. You then take the left turn after the phone box, which almost doubles back on itself, and follow this track to the end, where you will find The Old Croft House.
Alternatively, from the ferry at Armadale you take the road to Ardvasar, the cottage is then just a 15 minute drive away, directions as paragraph above.
Portree, the 'capital' of Skye, is approx an hour's drive and Inverness is about a two and a half hour drive.
