It's already been the second time for me that I was staying in Garalapin House! Sam and Clive had warmly welcomed my girlfriend and myself and were pleased that I have chosen Garalapin House again. We were staying in the double ensuite room, which is cosy and beautifully decorated. The B&B is a short drive outside Portree in the countryside... More

Great little B&B! We loved our stay here! Chickens in the backyard, cool room decor (deer theme going on) and the bed was super comfy! Best breakfast of our trip cooked by Sam and Clive! And, they didnt laugh at us (too much) when I locked us out of our room haha... Would definitely recommend a stay here!

For our first trip to Skye we couldn't choose a better place to spend a couple of days. The cottage is surrounded by an amazing panorama and the welcome of Sam has been more than pleasant. The room is cozy, delightful and offers a silent, peaceful and relaxing night. The scottish breakfast was really good, the best way to start... More

Driving to the little B&B in the quiet urban hinterland of Portree is an adventure itself with sheep on narrow roads included. We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B on the beautiful Isle of Skye.

Dear Sam, dear Clive, sorry for the long wait but now you get your well deserved 5-star rating. Not much to say here. Openhearted welcome, lovely rooms, great breakfast and very child-friendly. Next time we visit Skye we hope you are free again.
