This B&B is located on a bay and the view from our room was breathtaking. Our room as clean and very comfortable. The location is fantastic and close to the center of town. Our hostess was friendly, knowledgeable, and made fantastic breakfasts. I highly recommend staying here if you visit the Isle of Skye.

The first thing thay strikes you about this place is the location. Providing fabulous views of the Portree town centre, its garden became our favourite place. Our hostess was extremely warm and welcoming. Every morning we'd ask her about where to go, how to go and where to eat. I must say following all her directions made some of the... More

We had booked the room with a sea view. Upon arrival we were taken to a room with a view of the parking lot. The owner said she would have to check then came back and said she would have to do some switching. I had the email with me confirming the room with a sea view. She switched us... More

Beautiful location overlooking the bay at Portree, you could spend hours just sitting in the garden. The rooms are spotless, en suite and a reasonable size. Lovely breakfast and a friendly cheerily landlady, everything you would want in a B&B! About 15 minutes walk into the middle of Portree so nice way to prepare for a beer and a meal,... More

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
