Just back from Beautiful Skye.. Booked Alderburn through Tripadvisor.. We were visiting with a group of 7, 4 adults and 3 children. This house was perfect for our needs and so very comfortable for us all. The House is in a great location, we drove up the road a few times before we noticed the driveway . The owners have... More

I first visited Skye when I was about 6/7 years old and stayed in a caravan. This time though, was 5 star luxury at Alderburn in Portree the island "capital." I can't say enough about its scenic location with views from the patio gardens and windows looking out over the harbour bay to "Black Rock" and the island beyond. The... More

Our hostess/owner Katherine was wonderful and very helpful. She makes the biggest scottish breakfast you'll ever eat! We stayed in the 2nd floor apartment and it had a great view of the loch. the whole experience was awesome. great location in the village and close to walking trails too. Alderburn is truly a beautiful home to stay in! Thanks Katherine!... More

Stayed one night. A sweet little b &b in Potree. Lovely view from the window upstairs bedroom. Guests downstairs a little noisy in the morning (early risers unfortunately) . Ceiling is sloped so needed to avoid banging my head in the bathroom but otherwise a nice place to stay. Good quality breakfasts. Take the scenic view via Glenelg to Skye.... More

This was our most enjoyable B & B. Of the many nice ones this one excelled, in no small part due to the graciousness of Kathryn Forsyth. The accomodations were quite good, but it was her personality and her energy which made the difference.

We stayed at Alderburn for 3 nights in the Studio. The room was very spacious and with cooking facilities, it gave the option of eating in. However, we chose to pay extra for 2 hearty breakfasts and it was worth it. It was the extras that made it so homely: large flat screen TV, sound system and a small library... More

We were going to do some walking and as the weather was promising to be foul we decided to choose the large self-catering studio to give us some space to spread out and to dry clothes. It was a very good chose and a good decision. The place is actually in Portree, Google Maps puts it outside Portree as if... More

We are having a wonderful stay at Alderburn (writing this review after being out for a wonderful day on the Isle of Skye). The rooms are perfect, spacious, comfortable, and clean. The host, Katherine, is the most welcoming person you could imagine. Never staying at a B&B before, we were not sure what to expect. She was welcoming and a... More
