We were lucky to find this gem, it was quiet and clean, the hostess very friendly and the breakfast they cooked up was tasty and delicious. Would recommend this B&B. The dining room has a lovely view.

Wow, wait until you see the view from the breakfast room. And if you are lucky enough to get the spacious corner room that looks out on the water and town, you can enjoy the same view all day and night. Breakfast was among the best we had in all of Scotland, too. Friendly service. Can't say enough about this... More

My friends and I were lucky enough to stay at The Gables on a recent trip to Portree. Morag was filling in for the owners and she was, without a doubt, one of the nicest people I've ever met! She had saved my friends and I the best table for breakfast every morning that looked right out at the lake... More

On our self-driving tour of Scotland we have enjoyed an array of seven different rooms in Bed & Breakfast style lodgings. They were all excellent and top-rated, and all were booked for us by Absolute Escapes. We especially enjoyed the views of Portree from the large breakfast window, here at The Gables B&B. Breakfast itself was delicious and our host... More

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
