Skye is called “The Misty Isle” with good reason. It’s often shrouded in mist so thick it cannot be seen from the mainland. When it’s clear, as it was during our visit, it’s magnificent. We were fortunate to find The Gables, a modern bed and breakfast overlooking the port of Portree. The Gables is spanking-new modern with sparkly-clean rooms and... More

I had the most wonderful experience during my stay at the gables. Friendly hospitable host who will go all out to make you feel comfortable and well provided for. A place I'll describe as "a cottage only imaginable out of a page of your favorite storybook". Don't believe me? Go see for yourself.... I'll definitely be back!

Our welcome from the owner of the Gables was like family. She could not have been more friendly and kind to us. Our family room and the entire house and gardens were immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and well maintained. The house has a commanding view towards Portree centre about 15 minutes walk in on a flat route. We were treated... More

First class B&B run by Mrs Davidson, Spotless & immaculate room (Room 1) which had a picturesque view of the bay. There was a selection of breakfast cereals, fruits & juices etc followed by a substantial cooked Scottish breakfast which kept me going the whole day. Mrs Davidson & her assistant Evelyn have a wealth of local knowledge & are... More

We stayed for three nights at The Gables on our tour around Scotland. By far the most modern of the five B&Bs (this is the 3rd) we stayed in on this trip. Our family room was comfortable with ensuite bathroom and the wifi works wonderfully well. The Gables offer fantastic view of the Harbour and in fact you can see... More

I've never been to a B&B before so didn't know what to expect. We came in late after a long day of travelling and were welcomed by a very friendly lovely lady named Margaret. Felt so at home right away. It was very clean and very quiet. Slept so well and in the morning we were greeted with the same... More
