Nothing negative to say. It's the perfect B&B. Very clean, very well decorated, great location to explore the Isle of Skye. Hosts are very friendly and always happy to help. Great choice for breakfast.

We stayed (3 adults and a child), 2 nights in April 2015. I slept in the comfortable double room and my brother and family in the family room. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. My niece enjoyed the playground and feeding the chicken. Sam and Clive are very welcoming hosts. And we loved the breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights at Garalapin House while we toured the Isle of Skye. This is a homey,older farm house with nice views of the sheep in the field, and a big playground for children. Our room was clean and comfortable, and Sam and Clive do a wonderful full Scottish breakfast. They were friendly, helpful hosts.
