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

We had a suite for 3 nights - had a great view on the bay with amazing sunsets. A little house, bedroom upstairs - bathroom and small lounge downstairs, nicely furnished and quiet. I like the option of fine dining or the pub/bar both served good food. The staff we're lovely, a big thanks to Grogan, Victor, Nicole and Marie,... More

Eilean Iarmain really is the perfect destination for a few days on Skye. Small and unpretentious, it has a choice of rooms in the main building, or suites in a row of crofts by the water. Each suite consists of a downstairs sitting room and bathroom, while upstairs is the bedroom, from where the lighthouse can be seen, bathed in... More

My son and I shared a twin suite (bedroom upstairs, sitting room and bathroom downstairs) which was extremely comfortable with a fantastic view of the sea and mainland. Although we didn't see them, otters can sometimes be seen from the room - seals were more obliging! The food in the restaurant was very good as was the bar food although... More
