When checking in at Viewmont it was so warm and welcoming. The room was spotless, the bed linen was top quality, the bed was nice and comfy and it has a great shower. So cosy to come back to after a day out in the hills. It is just a short walk into the town, with good places to eat.... More

The owners of Viewmount are amazing and very friendly. Lovely house and enjoyed the stay after a long walk around Skye. The beds were comfortable and was made everyday. Breakfast made by the owners were delicious. Definitely will return again during my next visit to Skye!

We had booked a room at viewmount but upon arrival were told our room would be at wood side, 2 doors down. I didn't see the original room I booked so cannot compare the 2. The room we were given was spacious but several things let the b&b down. Firstly, the heat only worked about 2 hours a day. It's... More

We had a great time staying at the Viewmount B&B and enjoyed the two nights we spent in Portree a lot. The hosts are very warm hearted and friendly people who love the area and are very keen to share their knowledge with guests. Our room in the top floor was spacious, spotless and cozy and the Scottish breakfast was... More

This was a lovely and wonderful stay while at Portree. My husband and I were a bit skeptical since our stay at Viewmount had been booked through our tour company, but we were absolutely delighted by how everything turned out. Christina, the owner, welcomed us and was so sweet and hospitable. The room and bathroom were impeccable, and everything was... More

Noisy place , on the border of a very passing road. The owner welcomed us very fast, gave us some explanations very quickly ( the same he gives to all tourists) and we saw him again right after the breakfast on the morning we left, knocking at our door to be paid... Gross... We were 4 in room, the room... More

Wonderful B&B on Skye. Great location, easy walk into downtown Portree. The rooms are comfy and spacious, the breakfast is good, and the hosts were incredibly kind and helpful. They gave us the best advice we received during our whole tour through Scotland, and their recommendations were the highlight of our trip. Cannot recommend this place enough!

Got to stay this place via 3 days 2 nights tour from timberbush. The host is very nice and ensure we are on time for breakfast ( toast, cereal, sausages , bacon and egg) in order to catch up for our tour pick up time. She is also very helpful when we seek advice for nice food around the city... More

We totally enjoyed our trip. The hosts were great. The women, unfortunately, did not get her name was very friendly. Gave great advice on where to travel and literally forced us to go to the North of the island. Beautiful views. Wonderful memories:)

Elka was a great host and very kind. The B & B was nice and had plenty of room! I had the opportunity to meet with Elka's daughter (Ann) and we had a beautiful conversation. Very lovely family and lovely host! Breakfast was very tasty as well!
