I feel quite spoiled when I stay here - this was my second visit. Pam and Ron are really friendly hosts and make me feel very welcome. The house is lovely with a relaxed atmosphere, and the breakfast is superb! The location was really handy for me as I was going kayaking and filling my flask and letting me make... More

We (2 couples from Austria) can't recommend Tir Alainn highly enough. Pam and Ron instantly made us feel completely at home, and the local information and tips they gave us were a great help during our stay. The rooms are beautifully cosy (we had a fantastic view!) were beautifully cosy, and the breakfast is to die for! Measured by these... More

Pam and Ron were so very helpful and understanding as weather and bridge closings delayed my arrival. And when I got there .... oh, what friendly and helpful hosts! I only wish they lived next door to me here in the U.S.! It's about 2 miles from town so plan on a short drive for anything except their wonderful breakfast.... More

I stayed her 7 years ago and it was delightful to see Pam and Ron again. Tir Alainn is a lovely B&B for a stay on southern Skye. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The walls are thin so there is some noise from other guests but this is a minor issue in my mind. We would... More

I had a wonderful time staying with Ron and Pam last week, they were so helpful and friendly. My room was very comfortable and the ensuite was really clean and well set up. Pams breakfasts are amazing! Very tasty and varied, I cant speak highly enough about my stay here and I would love to return one day for another... More

I've used Tir Alainn twice now as a base for making forays into the Cuillins. I could not have chosen better. When I arrived for my second stay, I was greeted as if I were an old friend. Very cosy single room, excellent breakfasts, knowledgable advice and info about the Cuillins, and on top of all that Ron and Pam... More

This was my third stay at Tir Alainn and again I was greeted with the same warmth, hospitality, wonderful food and great accommodation. Pam and Ron take such pride in providing for their guests and I've never been disappointed. I would recommend booking early as they are always full ! Thanks Pam and Ron for a lovely stay and hope...

We had the opportunity to spend two nights here and we had a wonderful stay. We had two rooms both of which were very comfortable and in the morning we were given a fantastic breakfast to set us up for the day. We also had a very comfortable lounge filled with books on hill walking and if this is your... More

We have just completed a tour staying at seven of the highest rated B & B s in Scotland, plus Tir Alainn (as we had difficulty getting a booking on Skye). We are both over 70 and unlikely to cause intentional offence but someone in this house is obsessed with rules and displaying them. Even the light switches have instructions... More

I've spent a couple of nights at the Tir Alainn while travelling to the Isle of Skye with a friend. The location is beautiful, close to a river and in the middle of meadows; near Broadford, so pretty convenient for exploring the island. Ron & Pam, the two owners, have been really friendly and nice: they also borrowed us a... More
