We weren't expecting much from this B&B, however the owners were very nice people and the location and views are perfect. We did find it hard sleeping due to thin partition walls (talking and snoring from other rooms). Free wifi was good. Evening supper was cancelled and the breakfast was good but no cooked breakfast other than porridge.

Sorry about the cancelled supper. Unfortunately we had to attend a sad family event. We concentrate on providing a flexible and healthy breakfast that suits the majority of the many different nationalities that visit us each year. We provide only the finest locally sourced ingredients in order to ensure a delicious start to the day. Hope that you enjoyed your... More

A week's stay in 'Seadrift', the self catering accommodation attached to the B&B 'Skye Picture House' was not long enough to see the beautifully stunning scenery of Skye. The cottage is lovely and warm and the owners Stuart and Sarah are fab hosts. The scenery just from the picture window provides a remarkable view across to Scalpay, seen in different... More

Thank you so much for your review, we are so glad you saw the otters. I wish they would make an appearance for all the guests. Room 1 is a great room with views from two sides.

After almost two weeks in Scotland staying in wonderful B&Bs, we arrived at the very best of the trip. We had driven through the rain from Loch Ness and were welcomed very warmly by our hostess, Sarah. In fact, we really didn't want to go back outside again and were pleased to hear that she could make dinner for us... More

Thank you so much! It was a delight to meet you both. The weather was certainly a bit challenging. I do hope that the rest of your journey went smoothly. The island has now gone into sleep mode for the winter which is quite nice after the hustle and bustle of a busy summer season. It won't be long before... More

After a hectic time in London, this was exactly what we needed to enjoy the time in Scotland and the view was fantastic. Stuart and Sarah have made a relaxing, enjoyable B & B here.

What a lovely couple Stuart & Sarah are. Stuart is very knowledgable and helpful and Sarah's cooking is second to none (wonderful evening meals if you want them and do try the Picture House Porridge) A wonderful location to explore the whole island, wished we was there longer.

I was originally only supposed to stay at the Picture House for two nights, but I fell so hard for the view that I decided to stay all four nights in Skye there. The location could not be better- right on the water and if you're tough enough to brave the midges and leave the window open during the night,... More

Hi Alanna. Thank you so much for your kind review. We enjoyed having you stay with us. Hope the rest of your holiday was enjoyable. The toilet works on a Saniflo system and it is important that no taps are left dripping at night or the system will activate randomly. We are going to highlight this to all future guests... More

First I must say off the view is a perfect 10. Location is about 20 miles from the town of Portree and a short drive from the bridge and ferry crossing.
