Just a short walk from the centre of Portree this is a fabulous bed & breakfast. The room was very spacious and well equipped. Beautifully presented and spotlessly clean!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Gables and we particularly enjoyed what was the finest Scottish breakfast on our trip through the Highlands and Islands. From the breakfast room you can enjoy some beautiful scenery overlooking the bay and on a good day you can see the Old Man of Storr in the distance. Thoroughly recommended!!!

We were traveling for 17 days and stayed at B&B throughout Scotland. This was our favorite and we wish that the two days could have been more. It is beautifully kept and the location overlooks the sound. Outdoor seating in a flowered garden overlooking the water was the highlight for my daughter.

The breakfast was hearty . This was the only B&B that provided fresh fruit instead of canned with our breakfast.

Margaret, the owner, runs a top notch establishment. It is a little distance to the town square but do-able.
