Airports/Itealan:
 
In some cases, budget services may be available e.g. Aer Arann, Ryanair, Easyjet & BMI Baby etc. Please check with individual airlines.
 
The nearest international airport is at Inverness, which has flights to various London airports, as well as Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow & Stornoway. From Inverness it is possible to get a rail connection to Kyle of Lochalsh, or buses to Broadford on Skye.
 
However, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Prestwick* have many more air connections.
(For first time travellers, Prestwick is not to be recommended due to being quite far from Glasgow and onward connections, but still has cheap flights available. ) It is possible to get trains from Glasgow to Mallaig, & both Edinburgh and Glasgow to Kyle of Lochalsh (change at Inverness) as well as buses to Skye itself.
 
Glasgow airport has services from:
Belfast (x4), Birmingham (x2), Bristol (x2), Cork, Derry, Dublin, Exeter, Ronaldsway (IOM x2), Leeds, London (numerous), Manchester, Paris, Plymouth, and many others including places in North America.
 
Edinburgh airport has services from:
Belfast (City & Intl), Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Cork, Dublin, Exeter, Galway, Leeds, London (numerous), Manchester, Paris and many others. 
 
Long distance bus & train
 
Trains from southern & midland England into Scotland are regular and frequent, and connect well with other services from Kernow and Cymru. (nb: Direct services from Cardiff to Edinburgh are available.) Normally these go to Edinburgh and Glasgow, but some continue to Inverness and the north. Main operators are Virgin and GNER.
 
For "braver" people it is possible to travel into Scotland by long distance bus. This option is cheap, but strenuous! Buses leave various big English cities for Edinburgh and Glasgow every day.
