Great place to stay on Skye. Upon arrival we were given sight seeing tips maps and help with dinner reservations. Our stay was wonderful. Homemade bread and shortbread. Perfectly cooked breakfast. Everything was great. Thank you.

We spent 3 nights at Larchside and couldn't have had a more comfortable stay. The only thing that Craig couldn't organise was wall to wall sunshine but he would have if he could! Craig was a friendly and welcoming host with a good sense of humour Kasia stayed in the background but they obviously make a great team. The house... More

We enjoyed our stay in this B&B very very much. Craig was there all the time to address any question and need. We had lovely breakfast every morning, served in a very pleasant way. Craig prepared a plan for a two day trip for us. The plan was detailed and helped us find the beautiful places. Our room was very... More

This B&B is rated No 1 for a reason. I booked due to TA rating and as usual the rating is deserved. TA doesn't often steer me wrong. The whole house is spotless and our room and bathroom was immaculately presented and sparklingly clean. We had the king room and it was very spacious with a walk in robe to... More

I read the direction that Larchside approximately 4 km from city center, I doubt at the first maybe I will live in . But finally I can say, location is not big issue since we drive the car. Also can see Portree at the night and beautiful mountain when sky is clear. Finally we arrive at 9PM and almost dark.... More

With so many other great reviews it is not easy to give original praise! However, I am compelled to thank our hosts, Craig and Kasia, by providing my comments to show my appreciation on how hard they work to make you feel comfortable as a guest in their lovely home. Larchside has a bright cheery atmosphere which is accentuated by... More

Starry skies, tranquillity, comfort & cleanliness, beautiful views, truly scrumptious breakfast, free wi-fi, helpful advice and friendly unobtrusive hospitality. And home-made shortbread. And Charlie. It was the perfect choice for us. Thank you Craig and Kasia.

It is always a thrill to find that the place you’ve booked really does live up to its marketing hype and the reviews of previous guests. Well, be assured, Larchside does that and more--- you won’t be disappointed. It is all thanks to Craig and Kasia’s professional, friendly approach to anticipating their guests every need, and beyond.

We stayed for two nights at Craigs and Kasias place. It was a great time there. The room was tidy and clean as the rest of the house was. The bathroom was nextdoor over the corridor but that was no problem for us. They have cuddly bathrobes to get over there. And the bathroom has a lovely bathtub(shower integrated) which... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while we explored the Isle of Skye. Craig and Kasia were the perfect hosts and were very helpful - even making last minute dinner reservations for us in Portree to make sure we had a great place to eat! The breakfasts were amazing too. Cooked exactly the way you wanted with... More
