The B&B is run by a sympathetic English couple with much care for their B&B. In earlier reviews, people reported that Greg produced excellent scrambled eggs, and we have found that that was absolutely true! Furthermore, Greg is a member of the Mountain rescue team on Skye, and is always available to give sound advice on walks in the mountains,... More

We stayed here on our first night of a 9 day Skye hiking adventure. Greg was very welcoming and happily sat with us to review our hiking plans and make some very helpful suggestions. The room was lovely and breakfast was awesome. Thanks Greg and Sue.

Definitely the best B&B we stayed at during our trip through Scotland. Sue and Greg gave us a warm welcome and useful advice about hikes. We were lucky to get the nice, spacious family room with a fantastic view to Quiraing and the sea. After a few attempts wi-fi worked perfectly. Breakfast was scrumptious. We would have loved to stay... More

Firstly my wife and I knocked on their door at 1900Hrs without making a booking, but we were given a warm greeting by Sue and Greg(the owners). As we were caught out, they went out of their way to provide us with some of the basics that we should of had. The beds were freshly made up and the rooms... More

Loved our stay here, the owner was kind enough to let us know the first autumn storm of the season was heading our way the next so we jumped in the car and got as much done as we could that afternoon. Breakfast was scrumptious and the stay was wonderful!

I chose this B&B for its location near the Quiraing (and not far from Old Man of Storr) and was not disappointed. The car park for the Quiraing is maybe 5-10 minutes from Greg & Sue's front door (by car), and Greg is a mountain guide so he had great advice regarding route-finding, maps, guide books. Breakfast was delicious (how... More

We were looking for a B&B near Staffin, first for dinosaur footprint hunting near Duntulm and An Corran then exploring the Quiraing. Achtalean was perfect. From the first phone call Gregg could not be more helpful, especially with his knowledge of the local area and with the family room unavailable, arranged for a camp bed in the king size en... More

We were not disappointed with this BnB, right from the start Sue and Gregg did everything to make us welcome during our three night stay. the room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Any advice where to visit on the island was readily available from our hosts overall and great experience.

What a fantastic BnB. My wife and I stayed here on our whirlwind tour through the Scottish highlands and we weren't disappointed. The house and rooms were clean and the hosts super friendly. Another plus...Only 10 minutes from The Quiraing.
