We stayed for 3 nights at Achtalean. Our en-suite room was very clean, comfortable and we had a beautiful view. Breakfast was delicious and always freshly cooked and served on time. Sue and Greg proved to be the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome and at home. Would we recommend a stay at Achtalean....... most definitely YES!

We met our host Greg at breakfast, He was enthusiastic, informative and gave us plenty of tips on the local attractions. Greg was also so kind... More

Our first trip to Skye and we stayed here for 3 nights. It was perfect. So close to quiraing and the mountains. And the owners were so nice and helpful. The room was great, with our own shower and toilet. Breakfast was suburb. Cant wait to get back.

Greg is a volunteer with mountain rescue on Skye and is extremely knowlegable about all hikes on Skye. The location is great with only a short drive to the Old Man of Storr and... More

If you are visiting the Quiraing (and why wouldn't you?), this is the very best location. Greg was very helpful in cooks a mean breakfast. As a photographer I found that quick access to the secondary road to Uig very convenient. Some Quiraing photos can be found on my web site: www.skeeterstravelphotography.com We would definately recommend staying at the Achtalean.... More

We had one night stay with Sue and Greg travelling around Scotland and it was an enjoyable experience. Our room was bright with a lovely view and our guests very friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay there again and recommend this B&B to friends.

Achtalean was a great base for our trip to Skye. The room was clean, bright, and airy. We were impressed by the organization Sue and Greg had brought to their bed and breakfast. Breakfast orders were taken and night - and what an impressive spread they made available! In each room they provided a number of brochures and information on... More
