A lovely hotel, with every comfort including free use of a kitchenette/washer/dryer. Comfortable rooms, beautifully decorated, so many little extras considered and we were made to feel very welcome. Lots of information, choice of two lounges to use, and owners only to happy to help in any way that they could. Looking forward to going again.

Just back from a trip to Scotland. We spent 2 days on the Isle of Skye and the weather was beautiful. We spent the night at the White Heather and could not have been more comfortable. Our room looked out over the harbour and had all the little things that made it comfortable. The breakfast was superb! Many thanks to... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the White Heather, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Gillian was more than welcoming, and cheerfully helped us out with anything we needed, including spending a little time with their dogs, as we were missing ours back home! The room was great, beautiful view of the harbor, marina and castle Moil. Very comfortable... More

I stayed at the White Heather while on a 3 day tour with Discover Scotland Tours. My 2 teenage daughters and I stayed in the family room, and it was very comfortable and clean. There was a tea pot in the room, biscuits, and tea, 2 lounges downstairs, and the breakfast was to die for- an assortment of cold cereals,... More

We spent only a night here (got a flat tire on our drive up and was not able to get up there for our first night), but it was wonderful! Gillian was so kind, informative, and helpful, and the family room we stayed in was perfect for our family of 4 (kids 13 and 9) - it's one of the... More

Had a great time at the White Heather Hotel, well maintained B&B, clean room with great breakfast. Perfect and charming host. Sleep quality however could have been better. Pillows were a bit to tall and hard for my taste, had some so-so nights because of it. If you go to the isle of Skye and plan to do some hiking... More

We recently spent 3 nights at the White Heather hotel. We have mixed views about our stay. Gillian is really helpful and friendly and is the perfect host. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice, lovely yoghurts, fruit, cereals, cooked breakfast - we cannot fault it. However, we were disappointed with our room. It is so small with old-fashioned... More

This is a nice hotel, very basic, but clean and comfortable. The hostess, Gillian, is outgoing and very helpful, with some fun stories of local history. Although the town of Kyleakin isn't much to look at, the pubs are good and the location is fine for day trips around Skye. We'd definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed the view of the harbor. Gillian is an amazing host. She made us feel so at home and was willing to help us out with... More
