This is by far the best Luxury B&B you could wish for. Superb location and fantastic host.
This bed & breakfast accommodation near Edinbane on Isle of Skye exceeded our expectations. The 3-room suite (bedroom, bathroom, and small living room) were immaculate, orderly, and well-furnished. Best bed we slept on anywhere in Scotland. Lisa, the owner, was so friendly and helpful, even recommending restaurants to us by e-mail before we arrived (in order to get a good reservation). And the breakfast she served was as good as an expensive brunch at a top hotel in Edinburgh. Highly recommend staying here if you're visiting the Isle of Skye.
I couldn't recommend Lisa's place more highly. Everything was perfect, spotless and the bed so comfortable - the pillows, the sheets, all just brilliant. Lisa was engaging and informative, only too pleased to provide recommendations and highlights of Skye. Her breakfast was excellent - a genuine bounty of goodness, and the eggs were spot on. The pub down the served great food, and the service there was also quite good. Lisa's place is central, and an ideal base to stay on Skye - you can easily reach each of the Peninsulas from here. And, if you are thinking of visiting Skye, my suggestion is that you take 4 days, you need at least that amount of time to see even a portion of what is on offer! And if for some reason you have to stay indoors, Lisa's place is a very spacious suite, so there absolutely no problem with being 'stuck' inside. A very nice touch that I have not seen elsewhere is that Lisa provides cutlery and crockery and invites people to bring in their own food in to eat while they are staying - that's a great touch, so there is no obligation to head out and eat.
What a beautiful location overlooking hills and water. Edinbane is a good base to enable you to get round the breathtaking scenery on Isle Of Skye. Lisa (the owner) goes above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay in her lovely modern home. The breakfast kept us going all day and she also provides extra maps, binoculars and info to ensure you get the most from your stay. She even gave us a box of eggs freshly laid by her hens on our departure. Lisa and her wonderful dog Jaz certainly made us feel at home. Thanks for a great stay and we hope to return in the future.

The B and B is immaculate. Lisa the owner made us feel more like family than strangers. This was aided by the fact you are the only B and B guests in the house. Lisa went above and beyond for us at every turn. The breakfast was a feast each morning with a wide choice of delicious hot and cold foods available to suit every taste and dietary need.
The B and B is very well located. It is near all the main attractions of Skye. It is off a main road which made it easy to reach and yet it is in a quiet location with uninterrupted views. There is dedicated parking space for your car.
The guest accommodation is a private suite of four rooms. This meant you do not feel crammed in the way you might in a regular hotel room. There is a private hallway with ample storage for jackets and shoes. The good sized bedroom has an exceptionally comfortable bed. My husband does not usually sleep well when travelling, but he slept soundly here. There is plenty of room to store clothes suitcases and belongings. The ensuite is modern, clean and functional. The shower has both rainforest and handheld settings. The living room/dining room has everything you could need to feel at home including fridge, hot drink facilities, dvds and books. There is a door from the living room leading out onto your own private area of the garden with outdoor seating. Inside, the accommodation is quiet with no noise to be heard from outside or within the rest of the house.
Lisa kindly provides maps of the area, binoculars and guide books. She has a wealth of knowledge of Skye and is good at recommending different places to eat or must see sights. There was also good contact in advance of our visit to discuss dietary needs and to give directions.
Overall I highly recommend Ach Na H-Aisling as your accommodation when visiting Skye. Thank you again to Lisa for making our first visit to Skye such an enjoyable one.
If you care about quality of hosting experience as much as the place itself, this is the place to stay. Lisa and her husband are warm and caring. Their rooms are en suite, divided in two by a small entryway, so that privacy is ensured, as is quiet. A stunning location near Edinbane, which is 15min.from Portree (so a good spot), you will have a picture window view of Skye, a most comfortable bed, and a breakfast that outdoes the restaurants in the area, all of which are very good indeed. All of Lisa's suggestions were spot on, and she is a generous, lovely person who truly wants her guests to have a memorable experience. Tripadvisor rates her b&b with a Certificate of Excellence and it is well deserved. The Snug-a private self-catering rental is close by-and in looking in, it took would be an excellent spot to stay. Highly recommended.
This is a fabulous, amazing place to stay. We loved it. Lisa is a warm and friendly host and we found Ach Na H-Aisling the perfect home away from home. This location is great for exploring the beautiful Isle of Skye. We hope to be back for a much longer stay next time. Thank you Lisa!
