What a wonderful place! You step outside the garden gate in the morning and see a few sheep with their little lambs coming down the narrow single track road. Peaceful and beautiful, just mountains and hills, a few little brooks and meadows and sheep all around. It puts a smile on your face! Very nice and quite room, slept wonderfully, everything spotlessly clean. Delicious breakfast with all kinds a fresh fruit ready cut for my Muesli. Irene and Andy made us feel at home and gave us great advice for Skye, could also lend maps and binoculars to take along. A wonderful stay for 4 days and my secret highlight of our stunning tour.

Right from the first contact, Irene proved to be a great source of useful and interesting information about the Isle of Skye. We were given information about local restaurants, activities and places to visit. Upon arrival, Irene greeted us and showed us around the accommodation. We were offered the use of books, maps and binoculars, all of which were gratefully received. The flow of information from Irene continued, and we soon realised just how much there is to do on Skye (and that there's no need for Google when you've got Irene). Andy, Irene's husband, is a local tour guide, and has encyclopedic knowledge of some of the island's most interesting places. He was often at hand to develop on Irene's search results; you can think of Irene as Google and Andy as Wikipedia.

The B&B is comfortable, and surrounded by beautiful and dramatic landscapes – it's like having your own little nature reserve, complete with birds, rabbits, sheep and lambs. It's far enough away from things to feel remote, yet only a five minute drive from local shops and restaurants. Aside from the B&B itself, there were some nice touches that left us with a good feeling. These included the use of Fairtrade products, and tasty home-made shortbread (the recipe for which is available in return for a small donation to a charitable cause).

We had a very enjoyable stay at Allt A' Choire. It was clear that Irene and Andy care about their guests and that they are in awe of the island on which they live. If you want to get the most out of your trip to the Isle of Skye, consider staying at Allt A' Choire.

We came up via train from Edinburgh to Kyle of Lochalsh in late April 2013 for a 2 nights stay in Allt a Choire. Irene gave us a lot of help suggesting train routes, recommendations for car rental and clear driving instructions for first time drivers like us to get to the B&B!

The B&B is located about 10 mins drive from Broadford, inside a working croft which is accessible via a single drive lane where you'll encounter a lot of sheep.

We had a wonderful stay here. The rooms were clean, well-spaced and very comfortable - I had my best night's sleep of the trip at Allt a Choire! The breakfasts were great as well - we loved the fruits and yogurt, smoked salmon and eggs. :) I loved waking up to the view of the Red Cullins, watching birds flirt around the birdhouses placed in front of the window of each room. We also learnt a lot about Skye and Scotland from Irene and Andy, who shared with us the key spots to see in Skye on our short trip and also gave us great recommendations for food - you have to try the amazing food at am praban bar and harbour inn restaurant!

Would love to stay at Allt a Choire again when we find our way back to Skye!

We drove up from north Wales to stay with Irene and Andy with our 2 dogs to receive a warm and friendly welcome. The rooms were spacious (with ample room to accommodate 2 dog cages) and very comfortable. More than enough to eat at a marvellous breakfast with Irene on hand to provide valuable advice on where to visit and when.....would definately go and stay again!! Thank you very much Irene.!

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious and comfortable with ensuite and drink making facilities, not forgetting Iren...

We stayed here for five nights for our honeymoon trip. It was a great location and home-base for touring the rest of the island, and only about 2 hours from Inverness where we picked up our car. Irene was very helpful and hospitable, offering lots of information about places to go and things to see. We had a perfect view every morning over tasty breakfasts and loved the view from our room, complete with bird-watching in front of the mountains. Would recommend this B&B to those visiting the island!

This is a lovely B+B with comfortable, modern rooms. This is a very friendly and welcoming place to stay, the owners are very knowledgeable and passionate about Skye. There are maps and guide books to borrow and lots of advice about what to do. Oh and the breakfasts are very tasty.

We spent 2 nights at Allt a Choire, on our way to and from the Outer Hebrides. A lovely warm, comfortable B&B and Irene and Andy made us very welcome and were great hosts. Super cooked breakfast and Irene's home made shortbread is delicious. They kindly allowed us to bring our dog and he was made very welcome too! Frankie says 'thank you' for the sausages.
