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.

Just returned from Skye having stayed the weekend. We loved our stay at the White Heather from beginning to end. Gillian was a lovely host throughout the stay. The room we stayed in was a good size, clean and tidy with a view looking in to the harbour. Breakfasts were fantastic with a good choice of cereal, fruit and cooked... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on our visit to the Scottish Highland and the Isle of Skye. The location was excellent after driving for such a long time, as it is just across the Skye harbour bridge. Kyleakin proved a great base for exploring the rest of the island. The room was spotless, with an excellent selection of tea,... More

This bed and breakfast is outstanding. Gillian is the perfect 'host' and so patient with our questions. Craig cooks the most delicious breakfasts. The bedroom and attached bathroom though small had all we needed. What I liked best is Gillian and Craig anticipate all a traveller might need and provide for those needs: two sitting areas downstairs with books and... More

This is an excellent hotel run by an enthusiastic couple who go to extreme lengths to do everything possible for the comfort of their guests. We found it the perfect base for exploring the Isle of Skye. Our room was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding, eggs, bacon, etc cooked to perfection. The hotel keeps some rooms... More
