Great B&B, run by a dedicated and friendly couple, Craig and Kasia. Lots of personal touches make it a memorable stay. It was our anniversary and they'd bought us some chocolates, which is just an example of the thought they give to their guests. Good breakfast to set you up for your day exploring the stunning isle of Skye and... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in October. Craig made us feel very welcome and was extremely knowledgeable about the attractions on Skye as well as local restaurants in Portree. He provided maps to help us and there is a bookcase full of guide books and other books to borrow during the visit. The room was spotless... More

Craig and Kasia are absolutely wonderful! They obviously care deeply about making sure people feel welcome and at home. Craig makes the best home-baked bread and shortbread I had in Scotland and Kasia's breakfast couldn't be beat either. They were incredibly helpful and informative about the island and beyond. Nothing was a bother for them, Craig even washed some very... More

Had three nights here in mid September and we had a most enjoyable stay. The room and view was excellent. The breakfasts were wonderful. The attention to detail was second to none and made for a wonderful place to stay just outside Portree, Isle of Skye.

We stayed there for two nights in early September. We cannot rate this bed-and-breakfast more highly. The room was a nice size. The bathroom was large. Everything worked. It had a huge closet. The hosts were more than charming. And the breakfast was really great. It really is a wonderful place to stay. You do need a car to get... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Larchside. Craig was an excellent host and ensured we had a lovely stay. The room was spotless and the homemade shortbread was a really nice touch. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and the fresh fruit was amazing.

We stayed here for one night on 8th September – which we'd booked on the basis of the reviews on TA. I agree with all the positive comments.

Craig, Kasia and Charlie were lovely, as was the cottage. Craig invited us into the living area and got a beautiful fire roaring while we set ourselves a supper dram. The Isle of Sky is gorgeous and the views of the rolling fields and sunsets were beautiful. Breakfast was lovely and hosts very attentive. Only downside was the very stiff... More
