Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The combination of a very comfortable lounge and a decent range of malts gives this a house-party feel.’ Neil and Rosemary Colquhoun’s ‘highly enjoyable’ lochside B&B is in a remote, ‘idyllic’ location on the Isle of Skye, surrounded by secluded grounds. Mingle with fellow guests around the squashy sofas and log fire in the drawing room; play chess, snooker or two-piano duets in the billiard room. Named after Scottish islands, bedrooms in the Georgian (with Victorian additions) house have ‘gorgeous’ views of the loch or the garden. In the evening, chef Andrew Macpherson serves an ‘excellent’ dinner of Scottish classics, by arrangement. The Colquhouns have lived here for nearly 15 years and have much local information to share. ‘A highlight was discovering some really unusual destinations, thanks to Neil’s in-depth knowledge of Skye.’ Drawing room, bar, conservatory, dining room (non-residents welcomed, closed Mon), billiard room. 10-acre grounds. Free Wi-Fi (limited), in-room TV. No background music. Tennis court, croquet lawn. Parking. Children welcomed; dogs by arrangement (£10 per night). Resident Labrador, Soay. Grazing sheep. 8 miles E of Dunvegan. 6 bedrooms (plus 2 attic rooms for family group). Per room B&B £140–£190. Dinner £29.50–£35. 2-night min. stay preferred. Closed Nov–Easter.

Guest comments

'Well maintained and comfortably appointed. We were welcomed by Zoe, a well-behaved chocolate Labrador. Beautiful large room (on the first floor) with an easterly view over the se loch. We enjoyed easy chats with Neil and Rosemary and thought this was an outstanding hotel in an idyllic location. Rosemary is a very capable cook who produced delicious meals on the two days we dined in. Very nice junior (temporary) staff. Our stay was very, very enjoyable and good value. ' - David Birnie - September, 2014
'Had a highly enjoyable stay at this remote Skye hotel; food and accommodation both excellent, great location, not too may midges. But perhaps highlight was Neil's depth of knowledge of Skye , which sent us to some really unusual destinations. Skye can seem a bit overrun in June but we never experienced this. The hotel has a house-party feel. The combination of a very comfortable lounge and a decent range of malts means it is difficult to avoid conversation with your fellow guests. One couple were getting married on Skye - Neil was one of their witnesses ' - nick patton - June, 2014
'We spent two wonderful nights. Had a feeling that you are visiting friends. Fireplace, books, wonderful fellowship with the owners. The comfortable rooms had many sweet little things. ' - Irina Vorontsova - August, 2013
