Larchside Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 97 Portree B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 27, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Larchside B&B on our month-long trip around the UK. After staying at 17 different places, we have agreed that this place was one of our favourites. We stayed for a total of 3 nights to enjoy the Isle of Skye (which is absolutely beautiful). The hosts, Craig and Kasia were so friendly! We often returned late in the evening from touring around all day and we could happily chat with them for an hour or more. The rooms, private en-suites and the house was extremely clean.

Getting breakfast was really easy - every evening we need to fill out a little form with what we wanted in the morning for hot food. As a vegetarian, I was so happy that they had veggie sausage that was delicious!! I will be seeking out that brand in Canada. They had cold breakfast in a buffet style with the regular stuff (cereals, yogurt, fruit, etc.). The breakfast table was set up to facilitate conversation with the other guests. We got some great tips from the other guests about things to check out in Scotland, as well as some great info from Craig on places to see and restaurants for dinner.

We absolutely LOVED our stay here and wished that we could have stayed longer. We highly recommend staying at Larchside!

Room Tip: follow the signage from Portree, they are a very short drive from town.

Craig and Kasia are intent in doing it right. Craig greeted us with an umbrella when we arrived on a rainy afternoon ... and the hospitality never stopped. Breakfast seating arrangement is conducive to meeting other guests and lingering to converse over coffee/tea. The B&B is fairly new and tastefully decorated. A bit of a drive out of town, but well marked and plenty of parking.

It was our second stay at Larchside (first we stayed with Carole & Martin, the former owners) and we are already looking forward to the next. The B&B is just a few minutes’ drive from Portree with its shops and restaurants and offers three rooms with en-suite/private bathrooms.
Kasia and Craig are the most lovely hosts, everything is done to make your stay perfect. The rooms are very well equipped, offer nice views over the valley towards the Cuilins and are spotlessly clean. We especially enjoyed the wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit salad and the evenings down at the sitting area with the beautiful view towards the Cuilins.

We spent a few wonderful days on Skye and although the weather was not great at the start it was still probably the most wonderful scenery we have ever seen. Craig and Kasia were very friendly hosts who could not do enough to help. The room was lovely modern spotlessly clean and well equipped. Breakfast was plentiful and set you up for the day. The Granary restaurant in Portree was excellent we went twice. Hope to go back often and soon.

We had a great time at Larchside B&B. Craig and Kasia were such lovely hosts and greeted us warmly upon our arrival. They have 3 nicely decorated rooms and a sitting area overlooking a mountain and countryside. Craig gave us some great restaurant suggestions for dinner in town - we ended up going to The Caledonian which had really good food despite looking like a casual diner. Kasia cooks a delicious breakfast and you can select exactly what you want. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Larchside is a modern b&b, decorated in light woods with clean lines and soothing colors.
staying here is more like staying with kind friends. Craig and Kasia really care about making sure you enjoy your time on Skye and are comfortable in their home.
The house is shiny clean and breakfast is delicious. the beds and their cozy comforters may help you forget a cold and wet day in the beautiful outdoors.
Craig gave us tips to find places not in the guides. Much appreciated.
the house is a short drive into the main town of Portree, so you should have your own car if you plan to stay here. the views from the house of the nearby mountains is inspiring. but you are only a few minutes drive to restaurants and shops, and centrally located to explore the island.

We stayed for 2 nights, surely the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Graig and Kasia are so friendly and welcoming. Would anyone want to stay around Portree that is the place to stay. The view from the house is amazing. Quiet area rooms are good size and very clean. Will definitely return.
