Hazelwood Bed and Breakfast is perfectly situated in the tiny village of Ardvasar in Sleat, the southern peninsula of Skye and the gateway to the 'Misty Isle'. We are located in a leafy lane just off the main road through the village and about 5 minutes from the CalMac ferry terminal at Armadale. Whether you need a place to stay for the night, perhaps using the ferry service to and from Mallaig, or maybe attending a wedding at nearby Armadale Castle or just need a lovely base for a stay in Sleat, then we would be delighted to welcome you. For those guests using public transport we'd be happy to collect you from the ferry, or from the local bus service. Having a car enables you to see our wonderful island or travel further afield and take in some of the stunning scenery of the mainland from Glenelg and Arnisdale across the Sound of Sleat, Plockton and Lochcarron or the the amazing mountain pass to Applecross as well as Torridon, part of the UK's last great wilderness.
To help you get to Hazelwood we have shown below some of the options available whether you are coming by road, public transport, or even just walking! Click here for the Google Street View of Hazelwood and here for the Google Map.
By ferry: CalMac operate the year round sailing from Mallaig to Armadale, with up to 8 services per day in the summer and a reduced service during the winter months. The crossing takes just 30 minutes and from the ship there are magnificent views all round, including the Small Isles, Knoydart and Skye. During peak periods advance booking is advisable.
By road: Sleat is served by an excellent network of roads, including coming via the Skye Bridge using the A82, A87 and A851, or from Fort William by the A830 'Road to the Isles' via Mallaig and the ferry. Hazelwood is 22 miles from the toll-free Skye Bridge which takes about 30 minutes. Use the AA Journey Planner to plan your trip, that's part of the fun of the holiday. Off-road parking is available at the house.
By rail: Many of our guests come to Skye by public transport and we are close to two of the most scenic railway journeys in the world. The famous 'West Highland Line' travels from Glasgow to Fort William and on to Mallaig for the ferry, the route from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh via Achnasheen and Plockton. These are both spectacular rides travelling through majestic mountain scenery and alongside rocky coastlines and lochs. For further information click here for the Scotrail website.
By bus and coach: Skye is well served by intercity coaches but perhaps not so good with local bus services. Citylink operate up to four services a day from Inverness to Skye and up to 3 from Glasgow via Fort William. Bus connections are available in Kyle to travel to Ardvasar but generally services are infrequent. Please get in touch if we can help you with public transport options.
Whatever way you come to Sleat you'll pass by towering mountains, wild moorlands, lochs, glens and stunning coastal scenery, and even better we have all that, and more, here in Skye. We look forward to seeing you at Hazelwood.
