Absolutely wonderful house and grounds. This is the second time I've stayed with Hugh McDonald in Portree. Once was ten years ago. Everything was beautiful. It's an easy walk to Portree and Hugh is very accommodating with advice on places to eat and walk. The Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been for walking... More

What a pleasure it is to find an owner-run establishment where their style and character is combined with modern efficiency and comfort. I say modern, in terms of them delivering the kind of care and experience you might encounter at a good 4/5 star hotel. But Viewfield is anything but modern. It oozes genuine Scottish Country House eccentricity, this is... More

Well, this was our first trip to Skye proper and we had dinner, a night and breakfast at Viewfield followed by lunch at the Three Chimneys. We try as much as possible to avoid the corporates and Viewfield is about as far from corporate as you can get without actually being a hippy. What a delightful place. If I was... More

Hugh MacDonald's Viewfield House on the isle of Skye is absolutely superb. This guest house leaves you wanting for nothing except more time to enjoy it. Rooms are comfortable and cozy, public areas are charming, grounds are lovely. Breakfast in the dining room is special and so filling one need not eat again until tea time.

We recently returned to Viewfield House after having stayed there many years ago and were delighted to find it had retained all its charm, grandeur and warmth of hospitality. Here you will find cosy log fires, delicious food, charming hosts, outstanding views, comfortable rooms, croquet on the lawn, afternoon tea, Talisker Malt Whisky and Scottish hospitality at its best.

I stayed at Viewfield House with 2 girlfriends for 3 nights last week and we were all very pleased with the accommodations. The exterior is just beautiful, like your own petite castle up on a hill. The view is beautiful, and it feels remote but it's only a 15 min walk or 5 min drive into the downtown of Portree.... More

Viewfield House is situated on a beautiful hillside amongst expansive grounds just as one enters the village of Portree. We were greeted and checked in by 'Viewfield's,' owner Mr.Hugh MacDonald. Just as the website and Tripadvisor, had advised, the lobby area was filled with relics from a (thankfully), bygone era; including an Elephant Foot Umbrella stand, a wall mounted Tiger... More

Viewfield House is small castle located in the park/garden, but on walking distance from centre of Portree on Isle of Skye (10 minutes slow walk). It is family run and you will feel like at home. If you like dogs you will be happy to meet the real owner - Harry! He will gladly show you around. He looks like... More

Roddy was very hospitable and charming, making us feel at home. I wasn't crazy about all the stuffed animal heads around the place, but that was his choice. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was tasty. The place was well located for touring. We needed to do laundry, so it was convenient that they had a washer and dryer... More
