Getting around

It is advisable to either bring your own car or rent a car to get around the Isle of Skye.. There is no bus or train service to Waternish. Buses do run from Portree to Dunvegan, and passengers will need to get off the bus at Fairy Bridge, at the entrance of the road to Waternish, but it is then a 3 mile walk to Lusta cottage. There is a taxi rank in Portree, but taxis are not a common form of transport on the island - they will be expensive and waiting times may be lengthy.
