Ample parking, good breakfast, decent sized room, and good value. The B&B provides pretty much everything you need. It isn't really walking distance from anything in town but if you have a car it's just a couple of minutes drive in.

Allan and Ruth were lovely hosts for our 3 night stay in Portree. The room was very comfortable with a good size bathroom, and good shower. The Duirinish is located close to the centre of Portree just a very short drive or if the weather is good a short walk. Breakfasts were very good. We had a really nice stay.

Lovely hosts, very clean room/bathroom, friendly atmosphere, good location (less than 10 minutes walk to the city centre), yummy breakfast! The only possible negative is that our room was quite cosy (small) but for us it was very minor thing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Duirinish Guest house is a short walk outside the town of Portree on the Isle of Skye. It is easy to find on the main road into Portree. Portree is an ideal base for visiting Skye and the bus tours enable you to get around without a car. You will receive a warm and relaxed welcome from Ruth and Allan.... More

This B&B has good parking and is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of the town. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom clean and modern. It is on the main road to the bridge but as the traffic dies away at night I had no problem sleeping. The owners were very considerate about my friends mobility issues and... More

We stayed for two nights during our recent visit to Scotland. There are many positives with Duirinish Guest House: charming house, good location, enough parking space, nice and very clean room, high quality products, fluffly towels, excellent breakfast and last but least very friendly hosts who did make us believe they loved what they are doing. There might be "wee"... More

Allan and Ruth couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome....even to setting up the dining room in the evening so we could eat our "take-a-way" in comfort,and as everyone says their smoked salmon eggs are to die for.Highly recommended .

We stayed at Duirinish for 3 nights (Sept 3-6, 2015) during our 10 night vacation in Scotland. Of all the places we stayed, the welcome we received at Duirinish was probably our favorite. We stayed in room 6, which is a cozy and comfortable room. It had everything we needed. Ruth knew we were celebrating our anniversary so left a... More

Duirnish was one of our top 3 BnBs during our 2-week stay. The room was small but very clean, well furnished, and cosy. The owners are nice, location is good (10 minute walk from Portree harbour). Breakfast is good. And Portree is obviously a very good place to explore Skye during a few days ! All in all, a good... More
