David and Christine were very accommodating in allowing us to book a room for the Friday and Sunday night as we planned to tackle the Cuillin Traverse on the Saturday and Sunday with a night in the mountains. They were also very kind in keeping the room open for us on the Saturday, at a reduced rate, in case the... More

You're in expert hands with David and Christine. The location is unforgettable - both for its view, and the fact that its within stumbling distance from a superb pub. Really nice breakfasts too and they're into their wildlife which is always a plus. Would go back in a flash.

Marsco B&B has a spectacular view and is also located very close by to the Cuillin mountain range as well as the famous Talisker Distillery. David and Christine are also very friendly, clearly love Skye and have lots of recommendations, helpful maps and tips for visiting places off the tourist trail, which was particularly helpful to us. Despite this, we... More

Stayed here last minute on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. Run by a lovely friendly couple who clearly love Skye. Rooms was beautiful with a view to die for. The breakfast and especially the homeade bread was outstanding. We will definitely be back! I cant believe people complaining about taking there shoes off! Did your mother... More

I am amazed that Marsco is not rated higher because we had the most lovely stay there. Wonderful rooms with great views, lovely breakfast, clean, modern, well-equipped, friendly hosts and the price was very good for the location and everything mentioned before. Okay, the clock we could hear, but for the rest of it it was all perfect. I have... More

An interesting experience indeed! We startet wondering a bit when the housekeepers were very strict on that we needed arrive in time (20:00) so that we could make arrangements on our breakfast. Somewhat strange... We arrived in time, and we were shown our rooms - nice enough, clean and comfortable. The house was very up to date and personalised, but... More

I booked this B&B early in the year as my friend was coming over from Norway to visit and we planned to tour around Skye and Lewis. We arrived finally after a lot of driving in the pouring rain to our B&B and were met with a lukewarm welcome and a list of immediate rules..... "Shoes off on arrival, "no... More

I was part of a group of 6 celebrating 60th birthdays stayed at this venue for 3 days. We thought the views were spectacular and the helpful advice from David about sights to visit was invaluable. However, I do feel that the oweners need to experience more B&Bs themselves as we felt we were treated like unwelcome billeted occupiers rather... More
