We stayed at Achtalean B&B for two nights in June 2013 and enjoyed ourselves very much. Sue and Greg were gracious hosts with a great breakfast. 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

Greg and Sue were like our parents and guide during our stay. We did not have the feeling that we were in a B&B. We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time staying. Food - More choice, served with love especially. Fruits with breakfast was great in spite of the location. Accommodation - En-suite was great and excellent... More

Breakfast was very good and we particularly enjoyed the bowl of fresh fruit provided. Greg is an enthusiastic guide... More

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay with Greg and Suzanne for 2 nights. Their house is absolutely lovely with stunning views but most importantly very clean, comfortable, modern and very good value for money. The breakfast was delicious and fresh. We were extremely grateful for Greg’s help and advice on how to plan our 3 days in Skye. His... More

We spent 3 days with Suzanne and Greg during August. What a wonderful welcome they gave us. Our rooms were so clean, comfortable and quiet! Breakfast just really was 'the best' - Gregs scrambled and poached eggs simply delicious! Both Suzanne and Greg could not do enough to make our stay so enjoyable - great sightseeing advice and friendly conversation... More
