He treats you well. Makes a mean brekkie. Makes yer bed when yer out. Keeps the place clean and has a dog that sits on yer feet. The showers are hot and the view stunning. There's a good pub nearby. It's the sort of place that you don't tell anyone about so as there's always room for you...

Spent too short time here due to 'poor' planning of own trip and spent only 1 night in Lochbay B&B. Room and bathroom were clean, new-looking and comfortable. Total silence in the night. The best was the host though. Johnny was a really friendly chap who made us feel welcome at the first second. This will be our choice when... More

Me and my parents spent one night at this wonderful B&B and we all thought that this was the best B&B of our holiday. Nice and clean, cosy rooms and breakfast area, wonderful surroundings and, best of all, a very friendly host that did much more than he had to to make our stay exceptional. I can also recommend the... More

We got a very friendly welcome to our overnight stay at Lochbay. Johnny was very smiley and helpful and quickly directed us to a nearby pub for dinner which we very much appreciated! Our lovely big double room was very clean and cosy, as was the en suite with a good shower and clean towels. The room has beautiful views... More

Stayed here for three nights with my boyfriend and we had a fabulous stay. Johnny was warm and welcoming and catered to every need and desire. The room and en suite were clean, modern and spacious as was the en suite. The breakfast was always great with coffee freshly brewed whenever we got downstairs. I had scrambled eggs with salmon...

Stayed two nights whilst travelling around Skye with two Canadians relatives. Lochbay B&B proved to be the perfect location and Johnny a great host, Rooms were clean and showers were fantastic. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and of good quality, free wifi was a pleasant surprise as there is hardly any mobile phone reception and Sky TV in rooms... More

We had a very pleasant stay at this B&B. The room looked like it was freshly decorated, and was impeccably clean. Our stay was peaceful and relaxing, but we couldn't help but feel that this place didn't quite have the character, charm or warm welcome of other B&Bs we had stayed in. The breakfast was a full Scottish - tasty... More

Johnny McMaster is one of the funniest B&B hosts you'll ever find, and his establishment is tops! Great breakfast, comfortable room, wonderful location. One tiny hiccup - the website prompts my virus scanner to complain about a "Blackhat SEO Exploit." Wonder why?

Don't "waste" your holiday in Portree, come here!! You will get peace, stunning view on the loch from the terrace and the nicest host on Skye! The breakfast is great, very good quality and variety. From the room we had a great view and the beds are also comfortable. The rooms are cleaned daily and the bathroom is also nice... More

We spent two nights at this wonderful BnB with its scenic views. Rooms were spotlessly clean and cosy, and oh my goodness what comfy beds! Breakfast was perfect which set us up for the day - didn't need to eat again until dinner! Johnny is a gracious and friendly host who went above and beyond the call of duty. It... More
