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...

We stayed here in early May only one night unfortunately. We had a little bit of trouble finding as it was a short distance out of Portree. We stopped and asked some locals who directed us, Met by Donna and her absolutely beautiful little girl. The room was really spacious and clean and the farm lovely. Being from the city... More

When we drove over to this place, we were very impressed of the fact that this was literally in the middle of nowhere. However when we entered our room, we found it very cramped.. I had to put back our suitcases in the car, since there was no place to keep the suitcases in the room - it was so... More

If you are looking for a quiet, rural location to explore Skye, this is ideal. Located just outside Portree, we were well looked after by Donna, who was able to give us useful advice on the area. Our room was warm, spacious and clean, and there was a good choice of breakfast options - try the fresh fruit salad!
