Kilmarie or Kilmaree (Scottish Gaelic: Cill Ma Ruibhe), (Gaelic: cill =' church or cell'; marie from St. Maolrubha) is a village in the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Its most notable feature is the village church and graveyard. The graveyard has a significant number of tombstones from highland clans, in particular Clan MacKinnon.[1] Nearby is Kilmarie House, former residence of Jethro Tull member Ian Anderson.[citation needed]

It is also the point of embarkation from Route B8083 to Dun Ringill ruin.
