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

We fell in love with the location the moment we arrived in our Classic Citroen car. Johnny greeted us (and the car) like family and immediately took a photo of the car (it may appear in his marketing material, who knows). When he showed us our spotless attic room with its amazing views from skylight windows, we instantly felt at... More

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

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
