“Lovely quiet location and excellent hosts.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2009

I've just returned from a 4 night stay at Balmeanach House. The house is off the main road, in very quiet surroundings, with views from the bedrooms out over the lovely little garden to Loch Bracadale and towards the Outer Hebrides (which can be glimpsed on a clear day). Arlene is a great host, looking after her guests very well indeed. Breakfast is clearly the main meal of the day - eat well and there's no need for lunch! I didn't try the porridge or salmon, but did have the Scottish breakfast and the kippers. Would recommend either (or both). I'll stay here again next time I visit Skye.

Balmeanach House has been lovingly restored by Arlene who has also made a lovely little garden which is open to the public on certain days. It is very comfortable and we were very well looked after, especially as we ran very low on petrol (long story, running very late!!) trying to make our booked table at The Three Chimneys. After taking a taxi back to Balmeanach at the end of the evening and leaving the car at the restaurant, Arlene took my husband off to the petrol station in the morning and on to pick up the car. Nothing was too much trouble! Breakfast was also excellent. Would certainly stay there again if we return to Skye.
This would appeal to anyone who likes to stay in friendly places with character. Unfortunately due to the rush I forgot to take any pictures, but there are plenty on the website.
