Honestly, there were a few other places that I considered first off for our family holiday with the 'in-laws' but luckily my boyfriend convinced me to book the White Heather. I'm so glad he did! It is located in a peaceful setting with wonderful views over the little harbour. My boyfriend and I had the best room in the house!... More

We booked for two nights in this hotel which is well situated. Our superior double room, which had recently been renovated, was spacious, nicely furnished and in excellent condition. The bed was huge and the bathroom had a luxurious shower. Everything was super clean. From the beginning, Gillian (the landlady) made us feel like home. It was a joy talking... More

Made arrangements to stay here when on tour of isle of skye in October. Kyleakin is small and White Heather is located right across from the ruins of a castle. Most beautiful sunrise I've seen from my window in the morning. Bed comfortable and Gillian, the owner, makes a wonderful breakfast and is incredibly friendly and warm host. B&B located... More

A hotel with room to relax, two lounges one child friendly the other quieter. The bedrooms are spacious, the beds extremely comfortable and the bathrooms modern and well equipped. The breakfasts are well cooked with a wide choice. I have occupied two rooms, one at the rear of the Hotel with very little view but the other at the front... More

A beautiful and comfy bed and breakfast with lots of charm. Gillian and Craig are charming, friendly, very helpful and make you feel like you are at home. Great view of the harbour and breakfast has lots to offer whether you want a light breakfast or a full breakfast. Definitely would recommend it.

We had a lovely welcome from Gillian who was very helpful & friendly. Our room was a straightforward double, with a harbour view. It was comfortable and appeared clean. The shower room was fine although the sink taps threatened to come off in your hand - we mentioned this to Gillian the next day and this was hopefully going to... More

Although it is a small hotel, it has a lot to offer. We stayed here for two nights, while doing a tour through the island of Skye. Its situation, at the entrance of the port, couldn't be better for us. As soon as we arrived, we could get some tea and chocolate that have been put in our bedroom (what... More

We had an excellent room with an excellent shower and amenities. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean with pleasant lounges to relax in. The breakfast was very well organised and beautifully cooked. Gillian and Craig were very pleasant and accommodating. The view of the harbour was very interesting as was the whole of the island.

We loved the amazing view from our room, overlooking the Kyleakin Harbor and Castle Moil. We booked one of the newer rooms which was large, comfortable, and had a spacious and modern bathroom; very nice. Gillian was the perfect hostess, friendly and full of great local information. She was especially helpful booking an early morning ferry for our day of... More
