Everything was ok. We stayed for two nights. The rooms and bathroom were perfect. Also the breakfast. There was nothing wrong. Ruth and Allen have made our stay to a most pleasent stay. And I wil recommend it to everyone who wants to stay on Sky.

Durinish Guesthouse is in a prime location, just 3 mins drive to portree city centre, where you could find lots of food. Also, it's good for drives to the main hikes in Skye. 4 of us stayed in a double and Twin room which was both very spacious, clean and well equipped. The water pressure for the shower is very...

We stayed 2 nights in this B&B where we received a pleasant welcome on arrival. Our double room - number 6 was a reasonable size and was clean and quite spacious. The ensuite had a large heated towel rail and two roof windows which made the room light and bright. The shower was a good size and the ease of... More

We had a very nice time during our 2 night stay here. The hosts were very helpful and provided us with a lot of info about walks in Portree and the surrounding area. The bedroom was very cosy, comfortable and warm and we were given a very good Scottish breakfast both mornings during our stay. We can recommend a stay... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. When the owners found out that we were just married, they surprised us with leaving a bottle of champagne and some glasses on the side - so thoughtful! They gave us advice about where to visit and lent us some guide books and a CD to use while we were staying.... More

Lovely, homely accommodation with off road parking. Made very welcome by Ruth and Allen who provided local info on places to eat, walks etc. The drying room was a real bonus for wet clothes after a day's walking and the resident's lounge was great ~ well stocked with games, books and tv. Would recommend this B & B as a... More

I along with two clients visited Duirinish Guesthouse in October staying for five nights in total (I run landscape photography workshops) and I could not have been made to feel more welcome. I booked the lengthy stay on the advice of previous tripadvisor reviews and their website and while I took a chance, I have to say that i could... More

... And great accommodations. Excellent cooked Scottish full breakfast. Nice that there is a living room to relax in the evening with a wee dram. Easy walking distance to Portree center. Thank you Ruth and Allan.

Early in October we booked into Duirinish Guest House for three nights--a great stay. The rooms are large and the breakfast plentiful. Located along the main road offered easy access to town and town parking. The house is well within walking distance of town, if it's not raining too hard. Allan and Ruth are nice, interesting hosts. We've stayed by... More
