“Home away from home”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We would highly recommend staying at Bruach na Frithe. It's a well-run B&B affordable for such a youn couple as ourselves. Bob and Norma are very friendly, helpful, understanding. They create a home-like atmosphere which can be rarely found so far away from home. The breakfasts are delicious, the rooms comfortable and well-equipped (we loved the fact that we daily received hot chocolate, tea, coffee, biscuits etc.). If you're thinking about visiting the Isle of Skye, Bruach na Frithe is the place to stay!

Room Tip: We'd recommend a room with the bathtub. Nothing helps you to relax better than having a long, wa...

First-class accommodation with a very helpful couple. This was our first trip to Skye, and Bruach na Frithe proved to be an ideal choice, both for location and comfort. We look forward to staying with Bob and Norma on our next visit.

This is an ideal B&B when visiting the Isle of Skye. What more could you want ... friendly/helpful hosts, a cosy/comfortable bed, extreamly clean/tidy home, free wifi and the breakfast... well that was my favourite part. Beautifully cooked breakfast that will keep you going whilst you take in the sites of the beautiful island. Thanks to Bob and his helpful advice we were able to follow his map around the breathtaking attraction located in Isle of Skye just wish the weather had been better for our stay. We stayed for two nights at Bruache na Frithe and could not fault one thing. On arrival, later than schedule we were shown to our spacious room with en-suit bathroom. Bob offered us a ride down to Portree (only 15 minute walk) and told us the best places to eat. We loved our stay and if back on the island would definitely stay here again. Thanks Bob and Norma!

We stayed with Bob and Norma for 4 nights in May and had the spacious double room on the ground floor with the wonderful bathroom (big bath tub - heaven when you get soaked twice a day!). Everything was spotless clean, the breakfast very good and our hosts very nice and helpful. Bob has a good humor and provided us with tips and suggestions for our day trips. He picked us up from the bus stop at the square when we arrived and gave us a lift back when we left (we were walking with backpacks and using public transport). We also really enjoyed the walk from and to Portree, no bother at all! "Bruach na frithe" will be our first choice again when we'll be back to Skye! Thank you, Bob and Norma!

We spent two nights here and we absolutely loved it! Bob and Norma were so welcoming and authentic so that we really felt like home. My parents had the large double room with the large bathroom with bath tube and me and my brother the smaller but also comfy double downstairs.
Everything was very, very clean and the beds a heaven! Even the breakfast was rich at options, not only the Standard Scottish Breakfast but also much other choices.
If you go the Skye, Portree is also the best location to start your trip to Trotternish area!
We definately come back.

We stayed two nights, excellent location for touring Skye. It is a 15 minute walk from the centre of Portree, uphill all the way back! Bob and Norma were excellent hosts and Bob gave invaluable information on where to go to make the most of our time in Skye. We had a wonderful time sightseeing and the weather was perfect! The B and B is excellent, everything you could want and more. Breakfast delicious and they also offer free wi fi.

Stayed here for 2 nights while on Skye. Good location, about 2 minutes drive out of town. Large rooms and nice facilities. Bob and Norma make you feel welcome. Bob is happy to share his suggestions, which turned out just right. Great place to base your touring of Skye. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to stay on Skye.
