Aird of Sleat (Scottish Gaelic: Àird Shlèite)[1] is a village on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It is situated at the southern end of the Sleat peninsula, 4 miles (6.4 km) south-east of Ardvasar and Armadale, at the end of a minor road. Lying 2 miles (3.2 km) from Point of Sleat, it is the southernmost settlement on Skye. The village is home to the Aird Old Church which is now converted into an art gallery.[2]
