“Lovely B&B on Skye!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Kirstie is very welcoming and friendly. The room was small, but very nice and comfortable. We stayed for six nights making day trips to different parts of the island. This location is good, with only a short drive to Portree. And the view over the loch is beautiful.
The breakfast was outstanding! I had in advance asked for gluten free bread, but Kirstie served me gluten free bread, cereals, muesli, porridge, sausages ... Amazing!

Room Tip: Only one room had a bathroom of it's own. We shared with another room.

We stayed here 3 nights while hill walking on Skye. Kirstie was lovely, as were her home made treats. Breakfast was outstanding. The location may seem a little "in the middle of nowhere" but it's only a few minutes into Portree, or Uig, and we found it to work very well.

Room Tip: We had a room with a shared washroom. There is a sink in the room, so it wasn't really an issue.

Hard to find a better welcoming and accomodation than Kirstie's Allt Na Criche. She is so kind and careful with guests, the best breakfast we ate in UK (and beyond), rooms are very comfortable, always presenting a daily hand made cake. This place and the way she takes care of truly deserve a staying if you plan to visit Skye.

Swe enjoyed two wonderful nights at Allt na Criche.

We had everything we needed; parking, wifi, comfy bed, great hair dryer, best porridge, best view over a loch. We were made very welcome. It is out of the way, but this makes for a lovely relaxing stay.

We were helped with local knowledge, ie where not to eat!

Clean rooms with very friendly hostess and very delicious breakfast. Not far from Portree, Isle of Skye. Quiet environment and nice view on the bay. You will be surrounded by nice farms and feel totally relaxed. Everything here is so well kept.
房間潔淨舒適,女主人非常親切和善,早餐豐富可口。離 Portree 不遠,有著寧靜的環境和海灣景觀。四周環繞著令人心況神怡的農場,一切都值得稱許。

I found this place on Visit Scotland website and the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor made me confirm a booking. We only stayed one (rainy) night but have to agree that the great reviews were well deserved. Comfy and tastefully decorated (if small) rooms, yummy and rich breakfast (even home-made bread and preserves), everything spotlessly clean and organic, very welcoming host Kristie (and her dog Lexie). It was not difficult to find because you can check the turn-off on Google maps StreetView (recommended) beforehand. Beautiful loch-side location. All in all, more than recommended!

We found this B&B through the Visit Scotland web site. The idea of visiting a "working croft" sounded like fun, but this is no drafty farmhouse! It is a modern building with all the creature comforts of being at home, with the benefit of a hard to beat setting on Loch Snizort with a view of the Cuillin Hills. Kristie (and her Westie Lexie) welcomed us despite a mix up in our reservation that had us arriving unexpectedly.
There are only two rooms at Allt na Criche and we were in the ensuite bedroom with a King-Size bed. The bathroom was modern and the bed and linens of a much higher standard that we'd come to expect at Scottish B&Bs. At night, it was very quiet and very dark. We slept well.
And we welcomed the next day with fresh baked croissants and homemade bread, fresh mixed berries and homemade preserves to accompany a big plate of scrambled eggs and Scottish smoked salmon.
We went into Portree for dinner and it was only a 10 minute drive. We missed the small sign the first time, but well worth looking for this slightly hidden "gem"! Recommend highly.
