I booked this B&B as a result of some excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and they proved to be accurate. Craig and his wife are very welcoming and the rooms are comfortable, clean and full of all the 'little extras' that you would hope for but not always get at other, lesser, B&B's. Of special note is the shortbread which is... More

My husband and I stayed at the inn for two nights. We were thrilled with the accommodations and the innkeepers. We were very comfortable in our room. Craig and Kasia were delightful! Craig helped us plan our tour, hikes and meals. He also made excellent dinner recommendations and took care of our reservations. Kasia made a splendid breakfast to order!... More

Upon arriving at Larchside, we felt the warm welcome of Craig. It was like we were staying with friends. The room was adequate and breakfast was great. The place was a little outside of Portree but it wasn't an issue for us. We loved the view and serenity of the area.

A great B&B - modern, quiet, well cared for, great breakfast - that is operated by exceptionally friendly and helpful people. We spent four nights at Larchside and were sad to say good-bye to our gracious hosts.

My husband and I stayed at Larchside in mid-September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Craig and Kasia clearly take great pride in running their B&B. It is bright and clean and well appointed - we loved the red tarten touches in our bedroom and the view of the moor from the window was stunning. The homemade shortbread and tea upon... More

Craig was the ultimate host with generous hospitality, amazing breakfast, and delicious homemade shortbread in our room! He clearly laid out his recommended "must-sees" and got us last minute reservations at The Granary down in town. We definitely will plan to return during our next visit to Scotland!!!!

Excellent B&B. The owners take great pride in the cleanliness of their home and rented rooms. Great location and hosts. Once you stay here, all other b&b states will pail in comparison. Highly recommend Dear Craig, thanks for sending me the jacket I left behind

We recently spent a night in the Isle of Skye and decided to stay at Larchside B&B because of its relative proximity to Portree. It is actually located some two to three miles outside the town centre on a small country lane. Don't be put off by the country lane that seems to go on and on - just carry... More

Stay just outside of Portree in this lovely location. Craig is the perfect host and will help you have a wonderful stay. Larchside is spotless and is beautifully decorated with professional photographs taken by Craig himself. A wonderful surprise of homemade shortbread is waiting by your bed. This is Scotland at its best.

We just arrived and are using the free wifi. We booked 3 rooms and all are immaculate, modern and very nice. All rooms have tea and coffee, flat screens with dvd player and a great selection of movies. Our room has an ensuite. Double glazing makes the rooms very quiet. Craig has been a great host and has given us... More
