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... More

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... More

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,... More

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.

The views are heavenly and is a less than five minute drive from portree town center. The living room is very comfortable with a large... More

Great welcome from Margaret, lovely clean accommodation. Excellent Breakfast lots and lots of choice beautifully laid out. Supplied us with a bag to take a snack from the table for later in the day. Use of the sitting room if we wanted. Situated on the Bay facing Portree fantastic view. I would highly recommend if you visit Skye.

We have just stayed two nights at this B&B and found it excellent . The room is well planned and of good size. The ensuite adequate and the breakfast exceptional. The host showed genuine concern for her guests and was very friendly. It is a 20 minute walk to town but that was not an issue for us. The view... More

Just on the sea..clean cosy and comfortable. You can spend the time just seating at ur bed and watching the nature around...it little bot costly around 10k per night but worth it. We spent 2 nights while raveling to isle of skyee...break fast was good not special I would say.
