We live in a beautiful location in the Braes , 5 miles from Portree on the Isle of Skye. The bedrooms are all clean and comfortable . There are two shared bathrooms , one with a shower and one with a bath/shower. There is a guest lounge with amazing sea views.
We have tried to create a space for our guests where we would be happy to stay ourselves. We have two double bedrooms and a twin bedded room. One of the double rooms can be combined with the twin, to create a family suite. Rooms have been tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and quality furniture. We use good quality, locally sourced when possible, ingredients for our breakfasts. We live in a beautiful location with fantastic views to enjoy.
Each bedroom has tea, coffee and biscuits or if guests prefer ,there is a lounge with an open fire, books, maps and binoculars .
