We stayed in that b&b two nights. It's a nice place to live the quiet nights of Skye. The hosts are kind and friendly. The breakfast is correct. Portree is ten minutes by car so it is good idea to have dinner there.

We stayed three nights with Andrew and Donna and their two beautiful well behaved children. A bonus, we were able to bring our two dogs. We had travelled all day in torrential horizontal rain and strong gales so we arrived tired during the evening. We were greeted by Donna who explained the electricity was off due to the storms!!

Stayed here for 2 nights on the 12th & 13th September 2014. Absolutely loved it. It is located in a rural location about 10 minutes from Portree. Donna was a very friendly and welcoming host and her 2 children were delightful, very polite & friendly. The rooms were beautiful and very spacious and clean. The breakfasts were great with plenty...

The house is nice in well maintained grounds, the rooms are clean. Location requires transport, and is a good 10 minutes drive from Portree, which was fine for us, if a little misleading in the description. Breakfast was good quality in a lovely breakfast room. Our daughter loved playing with Donna's daughter, who was delightful. Unfortunately, Donna's 'polite but cool/frosty'... More

We really hope that we will have the opportunity to return to Andrew and Donna's small B&B as we really enjoyed our stay which we felt was excellent value for money and a superb rural location. The room was large and spacious even with a travel cot. There was plenty of storage for tucking away cumbersome suitcases and the shower... More

At first it seemed a bit strange to be staying in what very much felt like (and is!) someone's family home, but Donna made us very comfortable and at ease. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable while the breakfast was lovely. A short drive out of Portree, but in many ways we liked it that way. It was a... More

I stayed here with my family and we were made quite comfortable. Donna and her two sweet children and the dog and cat gave our stay a good feel. Definitely beats staying in a hotel. Even though located about 4 miles from the town, driving to the place is quite easy, and the drive through farms is also nice. The... More

We chose this place because we wanted a peaceful spot but not too far from Portree and this is exactly what we got. It was only a ten minute drive in to Portree. We were made very welcome and given suggestions of restaurents in Portree to have our meal. The house is modern and we had a lovely comfortable room... More

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyable. We had a little bit of trouble finding it, but once we arrived Andrew gave us easier directions to and from Portree. Donna was lovely and very friendly. Breakfast was delicious, both the cooked breakfast and the fruit options. The family room was spacious, clean and bright. The... More

Difficult to say… The place is in the middle of nowhere, but not an interesting nowhere; the room was ugly and uncomfortable; it had only very thin curtains and no shutters, so my husband couldn't sleep; I couldn't sleep either because the bed cover, which was also the only sheet provided, was too small for the bed and kept falling...
