This is a gem of a B&B, excellent in all respects with two very comfortable and well-decorated bedrooms, a lovely sitting room (shared with the other visitors), and a homely feel accentuated by the chickens wandering around the gardens overlooking the loch. What makes it so special is Ian and Marcella's discreet attention to ensuring that your stay is as... More

This is a great location for the Cuillins, Fairy Pools, Talisker Beach and other gems of Skye. The Old Inn is a 5 minute walk for food and live music. Talisker Distillery is also an easy walk. And of course Ian and Marcella continue to supply the hospitality and quality accommodation that make Wilmar a true 5 star stay.

Everyone has said such a lot about what a wonderful b&b Wilmar is that I am not sure I can add anything much except to endorse the other comments! It's just brilliant and everything about our stay was perfect. We loved the breakfasts, the homemade breads and jams especially. What brilliant attention to detail.Thanks so much Marcella and Ian.

This is a late review but I stayed at Wilmar B&B with my boyfriend for 2 nights in July and it was absolutely fantastic! This was our first visit to Skye and I wish it was for longer. We were lucky to have glorious weather and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Ian and Marcella make you... More

Marcella and Ian provide elegant hospitality with the comfort of home, a very comfortable home! Every detail is a thing of beauty and quality. After staying here, we were spoiled and wondered why they don’t have a 10 star rating when we compared their 4 stars to other 4 star B&B’s. The food is exceptional – eggs from their hens... More

Found the house clean and comfortable. The breakfasts where tasty. I think they had the best porridge of the entire Scotland vacation. The freshly made sourdough toast with jams was great. Breakfasts at the Wilmar very good. It was nice that the Old Inn (restaurant) was close enough to walk for dinner. The cottage garden on the street side of... More

We stayed at the Wilmar in early October 2013 and just loved it. The location is great for getting around on Skye. There are some wonderful hikes right up the road and be sure not to miss the Quirang hike. It was phenomenal! There is a charming little pub (The Old Inn) within walking distance of the Wilmar that we... More

This was certainly one of the high points of our wonderful time in Ireland. First, the drive from inverness through wild, wooly scenery was truly awesome. Finding the little road to Carbost was a winning moment. And, finally, the gracious greeting by Marcella and Ian into their warm and comfortably elegant home, was most welcome. They did all they could... More
