My husband and I were trying to find a Guest House for one night on Skye, before heading further North up the island for a week. It's not easy to find just a one night stay, most Guest Houses have a minimum booking of two, but luckily Skye Picture House had one room available. We booked Room 4, a double... More

We spent a week and found it to be a very well provisioned self catering guest house. The owner was awesome; Stuart provided numerous outstanding recommendations for day trips and places to eat near most locations. We found the location to be central to many of our day trips.

This B & B was very lovely. The view was spectacular, we even saw some seals playing in the inlet. Sarah is an amazing cook, her breakfast was the best we had our whole time in Scotland. She made these heavenly oatmeal bars with jam. I do not know even how to describe them, except I already miss them!!! The... More

We booked this B&B based on very good reviews on Tripadvisor, and it didn't disappoint. We experienced a very warm welcome, a very clean room and ensuite, and a tasty breakfast. Just remember though that they serve a continental breakfast here. However the choice of fruit, porridge, breads, cold meats, cheeses, cereal, yoghurt etc. should please just about everyone. There...

This Guest House is beautifully situated on the edge of the water. The room was well equipped and spacious with an En Suite with bath. The proprietors were very friendly, engaging and helpful. During our stay we enjoyed a few glimpses of Otters including a mother with her cubs. My only complaint, and for me it's something that bothers me,... More

Situated right on the water's edge with amazing views. Stuart and Sarah were most welcoming, the room comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was varied, plentiful and tasty. Try the Skye Picture House porridge, absolutely delicious. A lovely stay...thank you.

We arrived to be met by very friendly owners- Stuart and Sarah, there were fantastic views and a very airy welcoming lounge. Free WIFI was good. Rooms were slightly cramped but clean and very comfortable bed. We were REALLY disappointed by the breakfast- we have never stayed in a B and B in the UK where we haven't been offered... More

Hi Folks Thank you for your review. Hope that the unpredictable weather did not take away from your visit to our beautiful island. It is difficult to please everyone with regards to breakfast as we receive visitors from all over the world. 70 percent of our visitors arrive from overseas. Experience has proven that our breakfast of top quality locally... More

Given that I wanted to make a return trip to Skye, it wasn't hard to decide to revisit the Picture House. I was in the larger of the single rooms (*well* worth paying for a bit of extra space, private facilities, and a view of the loch), and it was very comfortable. There's a friendly atmosphere in the breakfast room... More
