Wonderfully friendly, cosy little bed and breakfast. And what a breakfast! Everything you could ask for, even a wonderful view. We had a family room for 4 that didn´t enjoy the view that must have been great from the other rooms. Very clean. A 15 min walk from the town centre, but easy enough.

We stayed at this b&b two nights during we took the local tour. This was almost the best b&b experience of mine. Although it takes about 15 minutes from portree centre, the location is wonderful with sea view and very silent. Room is wonderful, very comfortable and cosy.we can overlook the bay view throwing the big window inside our room....

I went to Skye with a friend for three days in September and we stayed at the Gables. Margaret was really nice, welcoming and friendly. Her homemade muesli and great breakfast was the perfect start to cast ourselves to explore the beautiful landscapes of Skye! Weather was just as wild and Atlantic as expected so we were always pleased to...

We spent two nights there for a long weekend visiting the Isle of Skye. The position is very close to Portree (the main city) and very easy to find it out. The guest house is very clean and with a lot of Scottish features, so it's very cosy and peculiar. The breakfast is only the traditional Scottish breakfast, with some...

Amazing location (especially the outside garden and the view from there). Room was clean, had everything you needed. Breakfast was hearty. 5 mins drive to the center of town. Our only regret was we didnt plan to stay here for longer (we stayed only for 1 night). Only downside was the internet did not work, but might have been for...

We stayed at The Gables for 2 nights. Our room was large and the property is clean and well maintained. Breakfast offered options for all with a wide variety of cereals, yoghurt, fruit and cooked options. The BnB is located about 5 minutes by car from Portree and overlooks the bay. It's located down a driveway with 2 other BnBs,...

We stayed at The Gables for 2 nights during a bus tour. Margaret is very warm and full of hospitality. Breakfast is fresh and varied. Who knew rhubarb yogurt was such a treat? Rooms are very clean and bright. The view of Portree is priceless. Short walk to town for shops, pubs, restaurants.
