Hard to disagree with existing reviews. This is a great B&B and the hosts Gillian and Craig are irresistably lovable. The advice given by Gillian for adventuring in Skye was spot-on and always accurate. Also her recommendations for dinner locales were excellent. Only one consideration is that the rooms on the upper floor above the dining room are not well soundproofed, you can easily hear other people talking, coughing and moving about in the rooms beside and across the hall. Just something to be aware of!

One of the best places we have stayed in - a small hotel right on the harbour at Kyleakin. The rooms are comfortable and a haven to come home to after a windy, wet, sunny (three climates in one day on Skye!!) day touring the Island. Craig and Gillian are the excellent hosts and spend time with their guests sharing their knowledge of the island.
A hearty breakfast, what better way to start the day? Highly recommended, wouldn't stay anywhere else if visiting Skye....if you want home comforts stay at the White Heather... PS Craig is a Disney fan, so if you've been there recently give him the up date on the new rides

This was our first time to the Isle of Skye and the the White Heather Hotel located in Kyleakin was perfect. First of all it is situated right over the Skye bridge and served as a good starting point to discover the whole island. Gillian and Craig made a delicious and hearty breakfast for us to start our hikes each day. She even packed us some bagels and croissants when we wanted to get an early start. The harbor across the street with views of the boats and Castle Moil were wonderful. Make sure you take a map that Gillian has on hand if you have never been to Skye. She also made some good recommendations on excursions and restaurants. I hope you enjoy yourself as much as we did.

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and we had a fabulous time! The couple that runs the hotel are very nice, they helped us plan our days, and gave us lots of great advice. The view from the room was wonderful, and the breakfast in the morning was some of the best we had anywhere. If you are going to Skye this is the only place to stay.

We've just returned from 4 idyllic days in the Isle of Skye, staying with Craig & Gillian at The White Heather Hotel. What a fantastic place - the hotel as well as the island!

This is a lovely, cosy hotel in a beautiful setting, run by two of the best hosts it's ever been our pleasure to meet. Craig & Gillian are so helpful and generous and they really helped us to enjoy our brief stay to the full. We'll be back as soon as we can for our next 'time out' away from the rat race!
