Don's Bed & Breakfast is amazing! The location is great in a small lovely village near Portree and by the sea. The room is nicely decorated. The Scottish breakfast is absolutely delicious! Don and Gail are great hosts. They are very welcoming. You feel at home. They share their recommendations about places to see and nice restaurants. We had a very nice time!

Five star accommodation on Skye. Don was very welcoming and his directions to his house were excellent. The view is breathtaking, the accommodation clean, warm and very comfortable. Don and Gail were warm, engaging and offered sincere hospitality. They were very helpful with information about places to visit both on and off the island. I would gladly visit again and wholeheartedly recommend Don and Gail's location to anyone.

We had a great time at Don and Gail's house. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. They gave us recommendations about what to do on the island and where to spot otters. The area is beautiful and peaceful, the view from the bedroom and dining room is great in all weathers. The bedroom was comfortable and very well equipped and the bathrooms clean and bright. The breakfast was copious and delicious. I highly recommend staying there!

Beautiful country style house, very relaxing & cozy place you hardly find in anywhere. Don and Gail are super nice host. They had a great suggestions where to hike & where to eat. Highly recommend to stay here when you visit in Skye.

I moved to Skye in May 2015 with my wife Gail.
I love going for walks, observing wildlife and taking photos.
I also love music , playing guitar and ukulele, as well as singing in the Portree Gaelic choir.
I also enjoy sharing our house with guests from all over the world, helping them to get the most out of their stay.
