Good Hotel Guide Review
Huge windows bring ‘glorious views’ of Broadford Bay and the Cuillin hills into Neil Hope and Lesley Unwin’s ‘beautiful’, architect-designed house on the Isle of Skye. Cross the footbridge to the front door: the modern B&B is ‘equal to any first-class hotel’. Plump sofas sit by a log-burning stove in the book-lined, open-plan lounge/dining area; on the floor below, tartan-accented bedrooms have uninterrupted views of the seascape. Breakfast, served communally, has home-baked bread, locally smoked haddock, Skye sausages – ‘delicious’. ‘Perfect’ evening meals can be arranged. Step on to the beach from the bottom of the garden; the ‘friendly hosts’ offer ‘helpful information’ for excursions further afield.
