We decided to spend the whole of our one-week stay on Skye based in one B&B and we are so glad we chose to stay with Sam and Mark. A few of the highlights were the comfortable accommodation, the superb breakfasts and the hosts' friendliness and helpfulness.
We eat very little meat and were attracted by the vegetarian breakfasts. First of all, there's the wide and imaginative choice, which meant we tried a different one almost every day. If you're after food that is both tasty and made from high quality ingredients then this is the place for you.
It is worth pointing out that this B&B accommodation is a little different from the norm in that the bedroom has its own outside door and breakfast is served in the room. This gives a sense of independence to the guests and means that our presence was less intrusive on our hosts' family life. The system worked well for us and Sam and Mark were always on hand if needed. The room is on the small side. Whilst it was perfectly adequate for our needs, it would not be comfortable to fit in anyone extra, unless they are happy sleeping in a cot.
At 4 miles outside Portree we found the B&B's location convenient for exploring all corners of the island. We can't recommend it highly enough.

- Come and pamper yourself in our Luxury Vegetarian Bed and Breakfast on the dramatic Isle of Skye in the Highlands of Scotland. Our 19th century former crofthouse is beautifully located next to the River Snizort, with open views over the hills and beyond plenty of walks from the door.

We are both on hand to help you get the most out of your stay on Skye and can offer you lots of tips on places to visit, walk, eat and drink on the island. Mark is particularly handy with a map and knows plenty of walks to suit all abilities. Sam is an imaginative and experienced cook, with a keen eye for interior design. We are both committed vegetarians, however we welcome those who might just want to reduce their meat intake, and you will also find our menu boasts a really good range for our Vegan visitors. Our aim is to give you an enjoyable and relaxing, yet ethical visit to Skye. Sam and Mark Crowe, proprietors. ... more less
