Such a beautiful place to stay in Portree. Warm and cosy but most importantly the hosts were very welcoming and kind. Breakfast was good and so were the soft beds. Only downside was that the hot water supply in the bathroom was a wee bit intermittent.

Party of 6 were warmly welcomed into this lovely Guest House which has recently been taken over by the new owners. Rooms were well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Lovely lounge for guests to relax in too. Breakfast was delicious and owners were extremely helpful, going that extra mile to make guests feel welcome. We would definitely recommend the Balloch...

I booked five nights accommodation several months ago for myself and four of my landscape photography workshops clients. I heard a few days before arriving on the evening of Tuesday 17th November 2015 that the guest house was under new management, I need not have worried for new owners Fiona and Robbie were just superb. The welcome was warm, sincere...

The house is located 10 min from Portree's centre. The room was clean but small so were the bed and the shower. Good breakfast. We found it a bit expensive for the quality compare to orher B&B we stayed in in Scotland.

We stayed at Balloch for 2 nights while hiking through the Isle of Skye in June 2015. Balloch is well located - not in the centre of Portee but nice quick walk from the main street. It is en route for a couple of walks. The room we stayed in was medium sized - not the largest or smallest we...
