My family enjoyed staying at this cosy B&B in September. We loved the taste of country life in this old croft on the enchanting Isle of Skye after our time in London and Glasgow. Apart from a brief welcome from Clive on the first night when we arrived late, we didn't see him again as he was ill, so Sam... More

The B&B is very clean and cosy and about a 10 minutes drive outside Portree, which is quite nice to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery!

We stayed in July 2015 when the weather was really shocking. It was very cozy and clean and Sam was friendly and welcoming and gave us good advice about where to eat for dinner. She even got up early to give us breakfast before we caught the ferry to Tarbert. We would stay again given the chance, but we could... More

I do hope the weather improved for you, it wasn't the best summer here but we're hopeful for 2016. Not a bother to provide you with an early breakfast, we have many guests who stay with us en-route/return from the outer isles. You know where we are if you're ever back on Skye again, kind regards, Sam & Clive More

Very warm welcome, cozy and comfortable room, nice bathroom, fantastic breakfast. Sam was very helpful and had lots of hints what to see and where to eat. There were a couple of books about the Isle of Skye in our room, especially a very helpful walking guide. We would recommend it definitely!

We spent 2 night in the family room. Perfect room size. (2 adults, 2 kids 9 an 16 years) Great breakfast with homemade jelly. Sam and Clive were very helpful if we need any help. We recommend this B&B at any time.

We spent two nights in the family room (bathroom in the hall). Our boys (8 and 7) enjoyed the bunk beds very much. Sam and Clive are very friendly, and the place is nice and clean. The playground outside is perfect for kids and breakfast was great. We would surely recommend it.
