The hotel / B&B was lovely and great value. A great pit stop for our driving tour of Skye with a lovely mountain & Castle ruins view from our room (Glenelg). Gillian was an amazing host with such great insights into the Island and surrounding areas as well as serving a fab breakfast.

Opening the door of the hotel is stepping into a friend's house. Everything looks very clean and you can tell all the care that the owners give to detail and to comfort of their guests. We were very welcomed after a long day of visiting, our host was charming and helpful. We had maybe the most beautiful room in the... More

My wife and I really loved our Anniversary stay at the White Heather Hotel. Gillian was really nice! We stayed in the new Twin/Superking Bedroom with full harbor view room and the view across the bay was really great. Breakfast was also nice. Loved the suggested stops at the Fairy Pools and Talisker Distillery. Hope to be back.

We couldn't have been happier with our experience at the White Heather. The hosts were warm and extremely helpful. The rooms were perfect. The breakfast was great and the referrals for restaurants were also helpful. My favorite thing was the perfectly detailed guide book that the owners have in each room helping plan day trips and pointing out hidden treasures.... More

A friendly and very warm welcome from Gillian the owner. Very informative in terms of facilities. Nothing was too much trouble including a request for softer pillows which was sorted immediately.Breakfast was superb and recommendations on where to eat at night were spot on. Even sorted out our boat trips without being asked to do so...what service!! Room was excellent... More

We had a standard room right above the front door, wasnt loud or noisy at all. Had a great nights sleep! Comfortable bed, good shower, and a very very good breakfast. Just what you expect when you book a b&b. ONLY complaint is the washer/dryer which is an all in one unit. Very confusing to use and took forever to... More

As the title says, I can't imagine there is anyone more friendly than Gillian and Craig. From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are staying with good friends or family. And Gillian's suggested touring itineraries, included in you welcome pack, are much better than any guidebook's I've seen. They have extensively remodeled the hotel, and were putting... More

Firstly, its not a big hotel. Its a small family run joint and the owners live right next door. The rooms are clean and well maintained. There is an included breakfast that is just divine, and especially useful due to a lack of other options in Kyleakin. The staff and the owners are charming and quite friendly. There is also... More

Next year, this hotel will have much bigger rooms, a fact that our lovely hostess Gillian was very excited about. Small room, but very clean and comfortable; lovely view of the fishing boats leaving before breakfast; and a generous breakfast cooked by the man of the house. Thank you for your marvellous hospitality.
