Broadford, is the second-largest settlement on Skye. Like many places in Skye, Broadford derives its name from Old Norse. To the Norsemen this was Breiðafjorðr – the wide bay.
The Gaelic name is of modern derivation and assumes that the “ford” element meant a river crossing.
Broadford was a cattle market until 1812, when Telford built the road from Portree to Kyleakin. Veterans of the Napoleonic Wars settled during the first half of the 19th century. Writing in the middle of the 19th century, Alexander Smith said, “If Portree is the London of Skye, Broadford is its Manchester.
Legend holds that the recipe for the liqueur Drambuie was given by Bonnie Prince Charlie to Clan MacKinnon who then passed it onto James Ross late 19th century. Ross ran the Broadford Inn (now the Broadford Hotel), where he developed and improved the recipe, initially for his friends and then later to patrons. Ross then began to sell it further afield and the name was registered as a trademark in 1893.

The Isle of Skye company was founded and run by Alasdair Campbell and his family, and continues to operate locally in the Isle of Skye. Furthermore, the Paint Company will donate surplus or mistinted paints to their local charities.
In their products, the Isle of Skye Paint Company continues to introduce raw, natural materials where possible. Recently, this included organic seaweed. Seaweed adds a natural thickening and stabilising agent to the paint, as well as boosting its durability. These natural ingredients ensure that the paint emits no harmful gases, and produces low VOCs.
