Flodigarry (Scottish Gaelic: Flòdaigearraidh) is a scattered settlement on the north east side of the Trotternish peninsula on the island of Skye, and is in the Scottish council area of Highland.

The small island of Eilean Flodigarry (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Fhlòdaigearraidh) lies less than 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) off the coast with Sgier na Éireann just beyond to the north east.

In 1750 the Jacobite Flora MacDonald and her fiancee Allan MacDonald were married and lived in a cottage in Floddigarry.[1]

In 2008 the singer KT Tunstall was married at the Flodigarry Hotel which abuts the cottage.[2]
