Our B and B hostess suggested this place for dinner with vague directions. We didn't think we had found it, but we did! It's a lovely hotel with a water view and the pub was homey and relaxing. We ordered our meal and excellent SKye red beer on tap at the bar. They had a creative menu and both dishes... More

Came across this hotel on our travels around Sleat, popped in for a coffee and to enjoy the views across the bay of this perfect spot.....two hours later we were heading back to our cottage to get dressed for dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food and the hospitality was second to none. The staff were friendly and very attentive... More

We stayed here for two nights when on a small group bus tour – and would have loved to have been able to stay on much longer. This is an AA 3-star hotel, but for us the quality far surpassed that. The hotel’s setting is stunning and the accommodation charming; from our room in the main building we had windows... More

As at least one reviewer has noted, this is a tricky one. Some love it, some do not. The location is, indeed, marvellous. It is also extremely inconvenient if you have no car. Residents are at the mercy of a slightly hit and miss approach to hospitality.......it depends which part of the complex you're staying in, which staff members you... More

This was the second time that McKinlay Kidd had booked us into this hotel, so we had high expectations and we were not disappointed. Delightful room, plenty of space, clean and comfortable. Friendly welcome, lovely quiet location, superb views. Dinner menu is expensive but you have to pay for quality and interesting options like Grouse. We will not complain about... More

We had our wedding at the Eliean Iarmain on 19th August. The hotel is set in an amazing location with views across the Sound of Sleat to Isle Ornsay Lighthouse and the mountains in the background. It is easy to see why this place has been voted one of the most romantic hotels in Scotland. The staff were uniformly friendly,... More

This is a delightful inn on the Isle of Skye. We stayed there two nights in August. Our room was one of the suites in a building adjacent to the main lodge. The room was clean and comfortable, furnished with wood panelling on the walls. Bathroom was spacious, and the heat worked well. The inn is a bit removed from... More

An absolutely beautiful little spot on the Isle of Skye - unpretentious but elegant in it's own right with very comfortable beds and amenities and extraordinary views. A little bottle of whisky is a nice touch while enjoying the beauty of the bay, lighthouse and so much more. Very quiet and peaceful. We were in the separate building on the... More

We had two couples staying in this hotel to explore Skye for three nights. The rooms were lovely and the setting is gorgeous on the southern end of the isle. We were able to explore the island and return to a lovely room and warm pub or nice dinner in the restaurant. We would highly recommend the hotel to couples... More
