We stayed with Mick and Lynn for one night and had a great stay. The view from our room was amazing and the house spotless with a great breakfast. Mick and Lynn are excellent hosts, we hope that we will be able to return on our next visit to Skye.

They have a very nice indoor observatory where you can watch the glorious sunset/sunrise/stars from on comfortable chairs in the warm house. We heard the dogs but did not see them. We didnt mind taking off our shoes either as we are accustomed to doing that back at home. Room is a little small if you are bringing 2 full... More

We stayed for only one night at Hillside and stayed in the room which although is not ensuite does have its own dedicated bathroom opposite - and an excellent view! Positives: - The room was not large but was very comfortable with an amazing sea view. My wife liked the 'furry feet' mats! The bathroom, while across the hallway and... More

This place is just delightful, we stayed here for 2 nights of our 10 day tour of scotland, skye and the highlands, on our arrival to this beautiful b&b, we were greeted by lynn and asked to remove our shoes , (they were clean?) not a good way to start really but when you see how well kept this place...

Your comments are very much appreciated. Hillside is surrounded by gravel, which does get brought into the house on/in footwear and therefore to protect the carpet we do ask guests to remove shoes before going upstairs. We enjoyed meeting you and Lyn and I hope to see you again in the future. More

We spent 2 nights at hillside Bed and breakfast and had a very mixed reception which I put down to the fact that I had messed around with my booking changing the number of people a couple of times. However reading the other reviews here I empathise with them on the mixed messages that Mick and Lyn give their guests.... More

Messed around is an understatement: You sent us thirteen emails in four weeks, five of which involved changes or cancellations to the number of guests, rooms and/or the length of your stay. The last email which was sent less that 48 hrs before you arrived stated, that five adults were now coming, needing two rooms for one night and only... More

My friend and I were welcomed at very short notice into this lovely B&B, and can do nothing but compliment Lyn and Mick on their hospitality. The room was very comfortable, the bathroom spacious and luxurious (we had access to shared bathroom as our room was not en suite, although no one else was using it during our stay), and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with friendly and welcoming hosts Mick and Lyn. The views out to sea and towards the Western Isles were magnificent from the relatively new, spotlessly clean and adequately spacious accommodation upstairs.
