The scattered settlement of Glenelg wraps itself around Glenelg Bay offering stunning views across the Kyle Rhea to the mountains of eastern Skye.
This little town offers visitors a range of services including high quality food and drink, accommodation, great walking opportunities with both steep high mountains and softer lowland scenery around the glens and coast. Between the months of March and October, there is a ferry connection to Kylerhea on Skye across the powerful currents of the narrows.
Other points of interest include the remains of the two of the best-preserved brochs in mainland Scotland (Dun Telve or the Lower Broch, and Dun Troddan or the Upper Broch) which attract a great number of tourists every year, and Bernera Barracks, one of four such buildings built in Scotland in the early 1700s to house a garrison of soldiers controlling the crossing at Kylerhea during the Jacobite Rising.
The town was once the main gateway to the Isle of Skye until the road connecting Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh was built at the beginning of 19th century.
