We visited here three times for food during our week visit to skye. The food was delicious, portion size was very generous and the waitress who served us every night was delightful. Will definitely be visiting again on our next trip.

Yes there are hair dyers. I don't remember a gym, but great trips up into the hills for great views! Ask the servers in the restaurant. The access is on the left side of hotel.
