We had a short 1 night stay at Balloch, which is a clean, well-run place, within a short hop to the town center. The room was small but comfortable...the bathroom was very small, and a bit cramped. Breakfast was good, with a nice sunny spot to enjoy your meal. As a light sleeper, I found the thin walls a problem,... More

This was a lovely interlude in our island holiday with Barbara, Donald, Helen and wee Hamish offering a very friendly, welcoming haven. They took particular care of our 85 year old mother who was finding the travel tiring, and nothing was a bother to them. Lovely breakfasts and lovely warm and well appointed rooms.

Balloch just located outside of Portree, within 5 mins of walking distance. The beauty of this is you can see the beauty of Portree in evening. In our room, there was a nice small living room that allowed us to sit down and have tea while enjoying the fresh air from outside. The double bed room is big enough, very... More

awesomely done up house. Just did not want to come back. Highly recommended if you wish to visit Portree. The couple who owns this takes extremely good care of guests. Just one bit, room was a bit cold I guess one of the heaters were not working. But any day better than any Hotel. Thanks for making my holidays comfortable.

Barbara was very helpful and lovely host! Her home included five bedrooms (ensuite) upstairs. She also had a nice sitting room where she had a computer for the guests use. We had gotten there after a harrowing flat tire, and she was able to find someone in town who opened their garage (on a Saturday) to put on a new... More

On a recent golfing trip we stayed at the Balloch on our return from the Outer Hebrides. Barbara made us very welcome to this fine B&B and we only wish we could have stayed longer. The location is convenient to waterfront shops and restaurants, and parking is ample. The room was well furnished, spotless, and very comfortable, and the breakfast... More

I had a 4 night break on Skye whilst on a walking trip with friends. The Balloch is clean, warm and Barbara is really hospitable and friendly. She always made sure we had everything we needed and was ready to offer some tips on walks. The guest lounge was a nice touch a became a place to chat and chill... More

My wife and I, with our two friends, stayed at Balloch on the night of June 26, 2014. Everything was excellent. The en suite rooms were not large, but quite sufficient, and very clean and nicely decorated. Our hosts were very friendly and gracious, and breakfast was lovely. It was an easy 5 minute walk down the hill into Portree,... More

The only reason I gave this B&B a 3 rating instead of a 4 was because in out room the sink was in the bedroom, separate from the toilet and shower. I was part of a party of 4 so we were not able to eat breakfast in the sunroom but the food was very yummy and even though the... More

Spent 1 night in this conveniently located B&B in Portree. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are quite small. Our host, Barbara, was friendly and helpful. Quick with suggestions for dinner, (The Granary was excellent) and did a couple of loads of laundry for us (fee), so helpful after 8 days on the road. Breakfast was excellent.
