Recently stayed at Larchside as a family of four (kids 11and 13) - we stayed in the double and adjoining twin rooms which had a large private bathroom. Great decor and spotlessly clean with coffee making facilities and daily supplies of shortcake cooked on the premises. Breakfast was excellent and ranged from fresh fruit/yoghurt/muesli to the full cooked breakfast. Our... More

I was travelling with my 17 year old daughter and we were given the double and twin rooms with a shared bathroom - it really was the perfect arrangement for us. We were greeted very warmly on arrival by Craig, who was very helpful and informative. It was particularly useful to receive local knowledge about where to park in Portree... More

Craig and Kasia are professional hosts who genuinely care about their guests. Their hospitality is superb, and from the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed and looked after. They made a dinner booking for us at the best and busiest restaurant in Portree (Scorrybreac) and helped us take care of our laundry. Craig is a consummate host and wonderful... More

The B&B is located outside of Portree city and had beautiful views as it sits up on a hill. It was pleasant to walk into town for dinner (it is light out until... More

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

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
