“Great Location, Great Hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

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. And, by -the-way, I appreciate the fact that Greg trusted us and did not require a deposit.

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.

Congratulations to Greg and Suw for this wonderful B&B. it's location gives wonderful views over hills, mountains and water, all from the bedroom window!!

We had some trouble finding it, but once found, we met with Sue who showed us to our lovely ground floor room. It was so clean, spacious, and homely, and the views out the window were exactly how I pictured isle of Skye.

Would stay again any time.

Thanks Sue and Greg!!

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 the area. Greg and Sue were both very helpful in helping us prioritize what to see on Skye in our limited time. The views from our en-suite room were impressive!

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 for our holiday
Extras - Greg's knowledge of locations and suggestions were too good and comes without any additional charge.:)

We will go here if we plan for Isle of Skye again.

Greg and Sue made us feel completely at home in their comfortable, light and modern house.We stayed for two nights and our room had a wonderful view to the sea ; we also enjoyed watching the hare regularly nibbling Greg's lawn. Breakfast was very good and we particularly enjoyed the bowl of fresh fruit provided. Greg is an enthusiastic guide to the area and we would certainly recommend this B+ B to anyone and hope to return ourselves.

Although i just stayed for one night, the memory is so impressive. i have enjoyed the wonderful view of sunset through the window of my bedroom, and also enjoyed the view of sheeps strolling on the meadow from the window of bathroom. How vivid the picture is! Everything in the room is jsut cosy and perfectly arranged!

The owner, Greg and Sue, are so nice and full of hospitality, serving wonderful breakfast with wide range of choices. They also have wonderful life stories and big collection of photograghs from their mountain climbings. I enjoyed the photos and stories a lot, having got inspiration from them.
