Skye Cycle Way – Have your Say

Mar 9, 2020

We are currently consulting on the route between Broadford and Ashaig. Working with the community and engineering consultants we have identified three possible options. One of these options will be taken to the next stage of Concept Design.
We would like to hear your thoughts. Download Map 1 and Map 2 produced by the engineers for further information. Then complete our short feedback survey: Deadline Friday 20 March.

When giving your feedback please bear in mind that the path should be suitable for all users including walkers, mobility scooters, wheelchairs and cyclists – both leisure and commuting.
If you have difficulty downloading the maps or completing the survey please email

The three route options are:

‘Waterloo Road option’ (maps 1 – 5): From Broadford, along Waterloo and through Breakish. This would entail adding a 1.2m wide footpath along the shore side of the Waterloo Road, requiring rock armour to be built out at certain points. The current footpath that links Waterloo and Lower Breakish would need to be improved, and a new bridge built across the burn.

‘Committee Road option’ (maps 6 – 9) From Broadford, a controlled crossing at the Sleat Road junction would lead to a new shared footpath/cycleway along the north side of the A87 then along the Committee Road through Breakish. This would entail constructing a new footpath alongside the north side of the Committee Road for walkers, allowing cyclists to use the carriageway, improving passing places and restricting traffic speeds.

‘A87 Option’ (also shown on maps 6 – 9): This would entail improving, widening and constructing a continuous shared footpath and cycleway along the south side of the A87 through Upper Breakish, with a second controlled road crossing to the north side at the Committee Road junction.

Thank you.
