What first strikes you are the spectacular views, then the warm and friendly welcome received from Stuart and Sarah leaves you feeling instantly relaxed! It was really comfortable - and the evening meal was delicious. All in all, very pleasing accommodation.

This picturesquely situated B & B is located a few miles north of Broadford. The bedrooms are small, but comfortable and well equipped, and there is an extremely pleasant sitting room with picture windows, inviting leather sofas and a log fire – this is perfect for relaxing, playing games (or the piano), and watching out for otters. Free wireless internet was a welcome bonus, particularly for our children (14 and 12).

The owners, Stuart and Sarah, are extremely welcoming and very ready to offer advice and information about local walks and wildlife. They serve evening meals by arrangement – the pate, hearty beef casserole and Athol Brose were all excellent, and there was a sensible, well priced short wine list. Breakfasts were extremely good too. Thoroughly recommended.

Glad you all enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the review. We do encourage guests to use the lounge as much as possible as this provides the best opportunity of spotting the otters and other wildlife.

Only superlatives can describe this experience. Stuart and Sarah treated us as friends from the start. We were welcomed with tea and cake and throughout the four days we stayed there, nothing was too much trouble. The food was outstanding- my wife is now hooked on the special porridge - and we left with the recipe for an amazing desert. We ate in three nights out of four, really only going out the fourth night to give Sarah a break as we were a party of six - not that she asked for it, just our own thoughts. Stuart's advice on where to go and what to see was always spot on, and our last night there was one to remember.
The setting is breath-taking, with views over the loch and up towards the Old Man of Storr. We were lucky enough to have great weather and sitting on the veranda or on the bench near the water's edge was so relaxing it was difficult to leave. The rooms were scrupulously clean and comfortable.
What more is there to say ? A truly wonderful experience and Stuart and Sarah deserve every success.

Amazing food. Fantastic View. Superb Hosts. The room was very comfortable and the hosts offer a whiskey sampling our crew thoroughly enjoyed. A MUST stay if you are on the Isle of Skye.

We stayed for four nights at Skye Picture House as part of our motorcycle road trip of North West Scotland and from the minute we arrived we were treated as friends. Nothing was too much trouble for Stuart & Sarah who looked after us brilliantly. Sarah's cooking is superb. Three course dinners booked in advance and the biggest breakfasts my wife has ever tackled. Stuarts local knowledge is immense and all the guests were picking his brain. Even the right malt to try after the evening meal was a favorite after dinner experience. The views of the sea loch are stunning and if that isn't enough we had otters playing in the garden.
This place is as good as it gets and Stuart and Sarah deserve every success. We will certainly return on our next Scotland tour. They even introduced us to The Peatbog Fairies!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4. Stunning views!!!

Thank you so much for your kind words! Glad you can now enjoy the Peatbog Faeries. One of the often forgotten treats of Skye and the Highlands of Scotland is the great music culture. We are already looking forward to your next visit. Be careful on that Motorbike.
