Broadford was all booked up, within town. So we ventured out a bit, approx. 2 miles south of town (on the road to Elgol where the boat trips leave from). A wonderful old, restored house built by Barbara's family in the early 20th century. Big rooms, a lovely gathering areas to sit and sip tea, and a great room for... More

If you are looking for a place where you can feel heaven just watching all around you, well the Swordale is for you. A bit out of the main route but absolutely nice in its location and position. Breakfast is done in front of a spectacular view, and the quality is great. One day i had salmon with scrambled eggs... More

Alan and Barbara make a lovely, outstanding B&B by their hospitality, sense of humour and warm and welcoming house. Great breakfast with all Scottish ins and outs, and homemade marmelade and jams from fruit in the garden. A cosy lounge with a logfire, walking maps and insiders tips do the rest. We'll be back when visiting Skye. By the way,... More

Everything about Swordale House was ideal, which considering its somewhat remote location, is a great accomplishment. The home is neat as a pin, the hosts are charming and helpful, the rooms are comfortable, the bathroom nicely updated (although really cramped), and the breakfast terrific.

We had three lovely nights here. Delightful owners who were so helpful and house had beautiful character and charm. Very clean and breakfasts high quality. Great views of the glen from our bedroom. Would highly recommend if looking for a quiet location.

Barbara and Allen were gracious and made us felt right at home. The breakfast was excellent. I was not expecting room service, but the room was cleaned daily, which was a wonderful surprise. We had 2 rooms, one faced the mountain, with view of the open space, mountain and live stocks. The other room face the beautiful garden. It is... More

Warm welcome, very comfortable stay. Interesting pre reformation church close by. Lovely views from front of house. Helpful host good suggestions for evening meal. You really need a car if staying here as it is outside Broadford.

This charming Bed and Breakfast is located just outside Broadford with beautiful views of the surrounding areas. Barbara and Alan are terrific hosts and made us feel very welcome, both with their delicious cooking and suggestions for things to do on the Island. Don't miss their beautiful garden

We had a wonderful stay at Swordale house. The breakfast was delicious and scenic. Very close to a local town and other beauty. You do not have access to technology which was refreshing but should be noted. A wonderful fire was created that crackled as I was able to draw various scenery I had encountered. Beautiful views from the room.

Swordale House is conveniently located, just 2 miles from Broadford and not that much further to the Skye bridge, but it is spectacularly situated in a world of its own. Dramatic mountain views and grazing sheep greet you, before you even step inside this beautiful cottage. There is a nicely furnished parlor with a wicker chair by the sun drenched... More
