Situated right before the bridge to Skye - stayed here overnight driving from Edinburg to Portree. Big family room with beds for everyone. Clean and quaint. Mike was a very attentive and chatty host. Great breakfast - full Scottish - freshly cooked and served.

Michael could not have been more helpful when we were trying to find B&B in Kyle. He went out of his way to accommodate us and was most welcoming and helpful when we arrived. The three of us had a delightful time at the Old Bank House and would recommend it to anyone without hesitation. If we were back in... More

I stayed here for one night while en route to Skye and already feel like I've known Mike (the owner) and his son Josh for ages. They are really the most wonderful and genuine hosts you could ask for, and were very interesting company to have conversations with when I was with them. Mike is a lovely guy who would... More

From time we arrived a friendly place to be. Ideal for touring round Skye and for the short drive to picturesque Plockton. Parking across the road from the Bank. Plenty of places for eating and getting a drink. Clean and comfortable rooms.

Stayed two nights as visitng Skye and Eilean Donan Castle. Very central hotel, basic but comfortable. Michael (owner) is a very good host and is very informative about the area. Room was very spacious and the bed was comfortable.

Stayed the one night as part of an epic rail journey from North Wales up to the Kyle of Lochalsh. The location of the Old Bank House can't be beaten being literally just yards from everything including the railway station. Accommodation was basic but perfectly comfortable and very spacious. The bathroom was not en-suite but this didn't bother me in... More

After meeting on Facebook.. we decided to travel to Kyle of Lochalsh to stay at The Old Bank House. What a wonderful stay it was too. Michael & Joshua made us feel very welcome like family. Spacious room with comfy bed and a real hearty breakfast what more could one ask for.. We had a brilliant time. Thank you Mike..... More

Great service from Michael (owner), always has a funny story to tell. Perfect place to stay for our diving trip to the wreck of the Port Napier, the B&B is right next to the slipway, very handy for launching the boats. Nice wee B&B,perfect for our needs!
