Really liked our room and the fact the kids were in a separate room. We had a great view of the harbor. It was nice they provided a menu do we didn't waste food on the full English we have had at most places in UK. Nice sitting room to relax in. The entire house is very clean. Great stay.

Such a beautiful place to stay in Portree. Warm and cosy but most importantly the hosts were very welcoming and kind. Breakfast was good and so were the soft beds. Only downside was that the hot water supply in the bathroom was a wee bit intermittent.

Party of 6 were warmly welcomed into this lovely Guest House which has recently been taken over by the new owners. Rooms were well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Lovely lounge for guests to relax in too. Breakfast was delicious and owners were extremely helpful, going that extra mile to make guests feel welcome. We would definitely recommend the Balloch...

I booked five nights accommodation several months ago for myself and four of my landscape photography workshops clients. I heard a few days before arriving on the evening of Tuesday 17th November 2015 that the guest house was under new management, I need not have worried for new owners Fiona and Robbie were just superb. The welcome was warm, sincere... More

After having a great time here two years ago we asked our tour guide specificaly to book Balloch B&B again. We were not sorry. Stay and breakfast were great and the atmosphere was welcoming and friendly, pretty much as we remebered it. Even Hamish was still there, the little dog my daughter was so fond of. We will surely be... More

The house is located 10 min from Portree's centre. The room was clean but small so were the bed and the shower. Good breakfast. We found it a bit expensive for the quality compare to orher B&B we stayed in in Scotland.

We were very lucky to get a room as someone had cancelled just as I went to the door to ask if there was a room available. We had a twin room which was a decent size & the usual amenities. It was very clean & fresh. Had a great nights sleep & had the best shower I have probably... More

We stayed at Balloch for 2 nights while hiking through the Isle of Skye in June 2015. Balloch is well located - not in the centre of Portee but nice quick walk from the main street. It is en route for a couple of walks. The room we stayed in was medium sized - not the largest or smallest we... More
