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.

This is a very clean and comfortable bed and breakfast with rooms in a modern extension and views over the peninsula. Waternish is a beautiful area, quite out of the way, but the cottage is in easy reach of the pub and excellent seafood restaurant. Johnny our host was most welcoming and helpful and cooked a fantastic breakfast. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed at Lochbay with friends recently and can honestly say it is one of the best we've experienced. The location is perfect. Great views to wake up to, within walking distance of the stein inn and lochbay fish restaurant,(one of the best in scotland in my opinion), perfect base for touring this great island. Add to...

Very nice place to stay and relax alone or in couple (for a family is quite small). Amazing view from Skye, very good bedroom (clean, calm, good space), and warm welcome. And about breakfast? The best I found in the last years.

My wife and I stayed here in February. For me, this was my fourth trip to Skye. On previous trips, I had stayed nearby at the Stein Inn, and I have no complaints about that place at all. However, I just wanted something more "low key" this time. Lochbay was wonderful. I have never really had a bad experience at... More

My partner and I recently stayed at Lochbay during a brief visit to the Isle of Skye, and we were very pleased. The scenery is gorgeous, and the views, especially during the evening are just phenomenally peaceful. The Waternish Peninsula is situated in the North-middle of Skye, so be prepared to do your fair share of driving if you wanted... More

I stayed here for three nights and I was really looked after with a five-star service. The bed and breakfast is clean, modern and light with gorgeous views overlooking the loch. Throughout the house it was warm and comfortable. The bedroom was well equipped with kettle, tea, coffee and shortbread. Very comfy and cosy bed. Bathroom / shower room is... More
