I stayed here a while ago with family. This is a fantastic B&B. Very comfortable and clean. The host was excellent, very inviting and helpful. He gave us lots of useful tips in terms of places to visit, which was really helpful and made our short break on Skye even better. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent... More

My husband and I stayed here during a 2 week UK tour and this was our favorite! The lodge is in the perfect spot, great view, cozy, and quiet. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. The owner was very kind and helpful, always going above and beyond to make our stay as wonderful as possible. The... More

Lochbay is in a remote area of Skye - like all areas of Skye :) It's situated in a neat little town right on the coast and is driving distance to many awesome sights - like the lighthouse, fairy pools and the faire glen. The house itself is updated and clean, with nice large rooms. It's not high end luxury,... More

We simply can't say enough great things about Lochbay B&B and Johnny the proprietor. The Isle of Skye is magical but 2 nights in this B&B just topped it off. Beautiful, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean rooms with a fabulous view over the fields and down to the bay. Comfy bed, lovely bathroom with great shower...and a scrummy full Scottish... More

Hi guys many thanks for the review. I had lost your email and would like to thank you for the calender and Dude loves the boomerang as he doesn't have to run after because it comes back. All the very best and hope to see you again when you go walkabout next year. More

We are little late writing this review as we were at the wonderful Lochbay B&B in May 2014. We came to Scotland to be married, and we chose to stay at this wonderful little B&B just for a few days before. Jonny was amazing, so friendly, nothing was too much trouble for him. The rooms were exceptionally clean, very spacious... More

A comfortable B&B for 2 couples with a great outlook over the Loch. Jonny was a great host who even offered to drive us to the local pub (the historic Stein Inn) but we decided on the 10 minute walk instead (look for the shortcut down the fence). Great breakfast and good company.

A wonderful b&b located in one of the best spots on Skye -maybe of whole Scotland- with a breath-taking view. We found a mixture of family atmosphere, modern and clean rooms and facilities, a good breakfast and very friendly and helpful owners with the right spirit of their country. Thank you very much!

Met at the door by Johnnie, made to feel most welcome and at home. Superb double room with excellent ensuite facilities. A great nights sleep and super breakfast to set us up for another day of travelling. Will be my first choice on another Skye excursion...

It's simply a fantastic place to stay - Johnny is a warmhearted and perfect host (and a dog lover)! Highly recommendable, everything was perfect! Booking in advance necessary, Johnny told us, that he hasn't picked up somebody from the street since April.
