Stayed for a week in August, my partner and I stayed in the Cabin and my boys mixed it up in a Wigwam and camped in the grounds. The owner Theresa went out of her way to look after us. The rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were clean and the facilities excellent. As for the location, well the views all around... More

My finace and I stayed at Croft Bunkhouse for 2 nights in one of the 3 adorable wigwams as part of our "engagement trip" this September. The manager, Theresa, was so sweet and helpful! She left us a bottle of wine and some treats to celebrate our engagement and recommended a few pubs nearby to have dinner and drinks. There... More

The cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in, with great facilities, really useful kitchen with everything provided, and the most helpful and friendly manager Theresa. We found the hostel by coincidence because the rain scared us away from camping, and Theresa was super helpful with giving us the rooms and drying our things. Brilliant morning/evening views! The living room is super... More

This was the best hostel/bunkhouse I've stayed in during my time in the UK. The atmosphere is incredibly cozy and charming and the hostess is soo nice, making you feel more than at home. Everything is clean and you'll be able to sleep with sweet dreams. I woke up to the the misty morning air of Skye, made some tea... More

We stayed as a family of 4 in one of the wigwams. It was clean, warm and well equipped and it was a huge plus having the use of the bunkhouse kitchen and communal space for meals and evenings. Theresa's warm welcome and help throughout our stay was much appreciated and the location is ideal for exploring the island. Would... More

After looking for a dry place to stay for a while, we were extremely happy to stumble upon this place. Within 10 minutes, we were settled down, had a very nice place to stay, an fully equipped kitchen, a good bed and a shower. The owner was extremely friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. Prices were not cheap, but... More
