My boyfriend and I visited Isle of Skye last year as part of a 2-month tour of Europe. Eight days before our arrival, we emailed Craig about availability for a 2-night stay. He promptly confirmed our stay. Driving from Oban, we pulled into Craig's driveway around 7 PM. The rain had finally stopped but he came out to greet us... More

We stayed here for two nights. The actual building looked and felt new--although it was not. It was squeaky clean and there was an abundance of natural light in the common areas and our room. The weather was perfect while we were there in early September. Craig provided a lot of local info which we incorporated into our exploration of... More

We spent four nights with Craig and Kasia. Our room had an adjoining bathroom rather than ensuite as the two ensuite rooms were booked, but it was just next door to our room and we had the only key. The room overlooked the fields running down to Portree. Craig recommended and booked for us some wonderful restaurants in Portree, and... More

Had a short weekend stay last month in this ideally located B&B, very near the centre of Portree & en route to some lovely scenery. The views are beautiful, as is the property itself - very bright, modern & immaculate. We booked 2 very comfortable & spacious en-suite rooms with scenic views. Breakfast was generous & delicious. The hosts Craig... More

We stayed here for two nights last month and it was fantastic! We received a very warm welcome from Craig and Kasia, their service was great, the rooms were lovely, the breakfast was yummy and it was in a nice, quiet location but still close to everything we wanted to see and do. Will definitely recommend the Larchside to anyone... More

We were planning on a 2 night stay at this b&b but when we were there we asked if we could add an extra night. The welcome was very friendly even though we arrived a few hours later than planned. The bedroom, we had 1 each since we were the only guests,was very clean and well equipped. Bathroom also very... More

地点不在portree中心,不过距离很近。浴室不在房间内,但距离很近,非常方便,没有感到不便。房东很热情,推荐了好吃的意大利菜。价格很公道,性价比很高,不过貌似明年要涨价。 It is not in downtown of Portree while not far from there. Although the bathroom is not in the bedroom it is very close to bedroom and very convenient. Craig is very nice and recommended great restaurant to us. The price is very attractive.

We stayed here in early Sept. and can only echo the compliments in previous reviews. Craig and Kasia couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Facilities are excellent. Bfast is excellent. Location is short 3 minute drive to downtown Portree (not a big town by any means) and many restaurants. The homemade shortbread was a real bonus, and Craig kindly emailed... More

Excellent B&B, very friendly in-keeper, very good breakfast with fresh fruits, our room with kingsize bed had a nice view and a strong shower. Great tips regarding sightseeing and eating out. Highlight on our tour.
