We had the perfect stay here on our trip to Scotland. The homeowners were so helpful with things to do and the place was perfect for our family of 4, with two young boys. They let our kids play with their chickens too.

Spent 2 nights in the family room at Garalapin B&B. Room was a great size for us and our 2 and 4 year olds. Both the room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was great ... the kids loved Sam's homemade Damson & Apple Jelly and that the cows watched us having breakfast. Perfect for families. Would definitely recommend and... More

The place is relatively small, we had the family room with bathroom in the hall. But nice and clean, and with a small playground outside for the kids which they loved. Breakfast was delicious. Would I recommend? Sure.

A beautiful room with shower and toilet outside the centre of Portree. All quiet and silent, no cars or noice. I slept very good. Excellent fresh breakfast. Free wifi. You can book a horseride with the neigbours.

Sam was wonderful, breakfast was delicious, and great location right outside Portree. Roads can be a bit terrifying but you get used to them quickly. House was comfortable, quiet, and relaxing. Highly recommend both the B&B and Isle of Skye.

Lovely home, warm welcoming, great scottish breakfast, cute room with garden view. Garalapin House is the perfect place because you're near Portree town center and in beautiful Skye landscapes, if you search real scottish flavour, go in this B&B!! Thanks Sam & Clive
