Great location. Barbara very nice although thought she was stalking us when she turned up at coral beach when we went! Very friendly to all the guests. Breakfast very good. Would recommend. Lovely shower too. Great to suit in the conservatory for breakfast

We stayed with Barbara for one night while visiting Portree. Barbara is a great host, served up a lovely breakfast and was so helpful suggesting places to visit. Our room was very well appointed, fresh milk in a wee fridge with homemade shortbread to have with a cup of tea. The place to stay if in Portree.

My friend and I stayed in twin room number 4 at the end of a three day road trip. It was fine for the one night however - in comparison with the other two b&bs we stayed at on Lewis & Harris, this b&b definitely lacks of that something special that would make it qualify as "lovely".

I have finally come to the realisation that Portree is maybe not the best town to stay in when on Skye. Everything was absolutely fine and the owners friendly enough, however, it lacked that little extra spark to make it special. Looks like the owners are looking to sell, so this may be reflected in the general feel...?

Warm welcome. Outstanding room beautiful decor. Bed very firm, perfect after a days driving especially if you have back problems. Short walk to town and petrol a hundred yards away. Breakfast excellent. Full Scottish breakfast available with lots of lovely fruit selection. Would not hesitate to stay again.

We booked in here on sameday notice when the weather finished off out excursion to Uist. Great price, absolutely superb warm and cosy ensuite room. The guest lounge was spacious and cosy, breakfast was fantastic (the kippers were amazing and my girlfriend rated the poached eggs extremely highly) and the owners extremely helpful with great local knowledge

My girlfriend Sandra and I stayed with Donnie & Katie for 4 nights at Balloch. They were so friendly which made or stay so relaxed. The bedroom was immaculate as the rest of the house. Breakfast was first class every day. Location is fantastic, only 5 minute walk into the Capital of the island Portree. The B&B was full but... More

Beautifull place to stay which feels like a home rather then a hotel. Very friendly staff and my daughter just loved the little dog Hamish It is not too expensive and I can recommend thus B&B to evryone.
