“First class b and b”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

What a first class b and b! Never been in a better one. A roomy room with an amazing view, a comfy kingsize bed and a beautiful pristine en suite shower room.
We had a tasty breakfast served by the very pleasant owners, Craig and Kasia - we really appreciated the fresh fruit salad.
So peaceful!
We'll return.

I recently visited this lovely establishment . From the moment I walked in the door I felt relaxed , slowed down and appreciative of the clean, yet modern and stylishly decorated rooms.
The bed was firm enough and the duvet was light ,yet warm and I had an extra cover in case I needed it. Craig and Kasia know their surroundings pretty well and suggested a few places we "must see", but also left it up to my friend and I to explore on our own. The air is amazing , very clean and pure and I feel that contributed to my relaxed sleep.
The bathroom is very clean , especially for someone with my OCD ( Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) tendencies , I could not find any fault. I liked the selection of Clipper teas , a very classy touch as I love flavoured teas.

Breakfast was lovely and it was good to have a fruit salad, part of your "5 a day" kick start , as well as cooked breakfast which was hot and the home made bread was a welcome accompaniment to the whole meal. I watched the landscape from the comfy chairs next to the patio window after breakfast and the whole place had a calming influence after a hectic few weeks in the city. Craig and Kasia's welcome ,as well as All the special attention to detail made this a very ,very pleasant stay ! I will be back with my two girls!

Our third visit to Skye in the last 9 months and this is the best place we have stayed in! Our 2 young girls loved their twin room and we loved the home made shortbread in ours! Craig and Kasia have thought of everything and they are putting their heart and soul into the business to make everyone feel welcome. The breakfast choice is vast but our favourites were the fresh fruit salad, full Scottish breakfast and Kasia's home made bread, which is baked daily! My husband loved sitting in the comfy chairs next to the patio doors enjoying the tranquil and picturesque scene, it has incredible views. We will be back....!

We stayed recently at this first rate B&B. From the moment you arrive at this modern well equipped establishment, you are made to feel very welcome by the congenial hosts, Kaisa and Craig. It may be thier first season running this beautifully located house, but you wouldn't know it as they provide comfortable accommodation, excellent breakfasts and plenty of valuable information on Skye, akin to people who have run it for years. Craig is a keen ( and accomplished ) amateur photographer and his photographs scattered around the public areas whet your appetite to see much more of the island. With this as a base you will not go wrong.

Room Tip: Book early...this place is bound to get very popular in the peak season and all rooms were to a high...

We have stayed in many b&b's throughout Britain over the years for a few nights at a time on short breaks. This b&b has been by far the best one we have ever stayed at.
Carol and Martin are just the friendliest hosts you could imagine. The house itself is situated overlooking the glen, west of Portree. The sounds in the morning are that of ultimate tranquility: a combination of streaming water and chirping birds, so peaceful. The road itself is very quiet, hardly any cars go by, sheep and cows are more or less the only traffic you may encounter.
The rooms were tidy, clean, fresh, brand new and homely. Bathroom identical. Breakfast is supreme and served in the dining room, with a view over the glen. Portree is a short 5 minute drive south and after a 10 min drive north you'll find The Old Man of Storr. Ideally situated to explore the island therefore.
Perfectionism is the word I would use to describe everything in and about this b&b. Loved our stay.
