Having stayed at Rowan Tree Cottage for a couple of nights on our recent Highlands holiday we can only echo the justly deserved praise of the other reviewers. Rowan Tree Cottage is a stunning B&B nestled in a quiet area only a few minutes from Portree. We arrived to a warm welcome from Alan who has thought of absolutely everything to ensure a visit here is perfect. The room itself is amazing. Beautifully decorated to create a relaxing environment, with photographs of local views, a silent fridge (with complimentary bubbly!) and fluffy bathrobes. The bathroom is similarly well appointed with a large shower and separate bath. Alan has created a B&B born out of his own experiences of staying in B&B's where everything is thought of, from fresh milk in the silent fridge, a spreadsheet guide to local attractions with priorities of things to see, to a pair of binoculars for enjoying the views over the Braes from your bedroom window.
Breakfast is a particular treat enjoyed in front of the big window providing views over the stunning countryside (although the October weather hindered this a little for us) and as there is only 1 bedroom here you have peace and quiet to enjoy it.
I could go on and on about our experience at Rowan Tree Cottage but all you need to do is look at other reviews to understand how good this place is. It won't be long before Alan sits atop the Tripadvisor tree as without doubt this is the best B&B on Skye.
