Armadale Castle Information


Quality self-catering and Visit Scotland four-Star accredited accommodation in the grounds of Armadale Castle, in tranquil south Skye. Our six cosy cabins are brilliant for couples, families and groups and have fantastic views of the Sound of Sleat which are situated on the hillside above Armadale, opposite Knoydart. Welcoming and comfortable, the cabins are equipped to the highest standard, ensuring a pleasant stay at Armadale. The cabins consist of an open plan living and dining kitchen, with a patio door leading to your own veranda offering stunning sea and mountain views. The cabins vary in size and sleep 4 – 6 people. Bed linen, towels and electricity is included in the price, so there are no hidden extras. All cabins are dog friendly and we charge a fee of £20 per dog (max of 2 dogs per cabins).

The Armadale estate was once part of the traditional lands of Clan Donald and the family seat of the Macdonalds of Sleat. At its heart is Armadale Castle, now a romantic ruin, which sits in a dramatic position overlooking the Sound of Sleat. The Castle is surrounded by 40 acres of magnificent gardens, with exotic planting, magnificent trees and charming walks. Also on the estate is the award-winning Museum of the Isles, which tells the story of the Highlands & Islands and Clan Donald. The estate is now run by a charitable trust dedicated to promoting the history and traditions of the clan and the Highlands & Islands. Accommodation guests have unlimited free entry to the Castle, Gardens and Museum during normal opening hours.

Booking Terms and Conditions

  • Road from Kyle of Lochalsh/ Mallaig (30.0 miles)

    Once over the Skye bridge, follow the signs for Armadale Castle and Gardens which are easily reached by following the A87 for approximately seven miles and then turning left onto the A851. This road takes you into Sleat and is approximately 17 miles to our site.

    As you pass Armadale Castle & Gardens main entrance and carpark, continue along and the sign for the cabins are posted on the next right - follow this road to the cabins.

    If you arrive by the ferry services operating between Mallaig and Armadale, follow the road and once you pass the shop/ filling station and car garage, take the next left-hand turn to the cabins.

    We are approximately a 35-minute drive from the Skye bridge and only a few minutes’ drive from the Mallaig to Armadale ferry.

  • Train from Kyle of Lochalsh/ Mallaig (30.0 miles)
    If travelling by train, services operate from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh, or from Glasgow via Fort William to Mallaig. Local bus and ferry services connect with most trains allowing the traveller to reach Armadale. The cabins are a short walk from the ferry terminal at Armadale. We advise it is always best to contact Calmac for any ferry inquiries and Stagecoach for local bus times.
