Situated in the very heart of Portree you will be hard pressed to find a warmer welcome in this picturesque port. Braeside is literally 2 minutes walk from Portree town centre and from the garden, has views of Portree's magnificent harbour still bustling with its fishing boats and yachts. Fresh fish is available from Portree harbour daily and lots of lazy hours can be spent just sitting watching the boats come and go

Months prior to our trip to Scotland, my spouse and I booked two nights at Braeside directly through the website. The photos looked lovely. We had within a week of making our reservation requested switching from a double bed room to a twin. Upon arrival the owner went from a

Great location in town and able to walk everywhere. Ruth was very friendly and helpful. Room was cute and very clean. Bed was good. Suggestion--needs reading lamps. Portree is very cute town with beautiful harbor. We did find dining difficult. There are many small

Central position in the town but at the back of a busy co-op so noisey for most of the night and early morning. Room was a bit twee and very dark. Not really my cup of tea and not cheap either. Found a nice place for breakfast before continuing our journey called the cafe Arriba

I'm very sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Braeside. Portree is extremely busy and the Co-op is open from 7am until 11pm every day and have to stay stocked up to deal with this so there is not much I can do about it. They don't start up until 7am. You could have stayed next door in the Bosville Hotel and paid £270 for a double room and you would still have heard the Co-op! Enjoy the rest of your stay in Scotland.

Just stayed a week here on room only basis. Ruth,the owner was warm and welcoming and we loved our room which was nicely decorated . The bed linen was changed twice and smelt lovely and fresh. Ruth's packed breakfasts were brilliant and really reasonably priced. Would definitely

The entry way ( hall ) of Braeside reeked of cigarette smoke. Although there were signs in our room - No Smoking - ( and a fine if you did ), it was obvious that cigarette smoking must take place in the private rooms on the main floor ( or somewhere in the house). Our room was

If there was a smell of cigarette smoke as you entered the house, it was from people smoking at the front door! There is no smoking in the property at all!!!! Sometimes smokers will stand outside to have a cigarette and they may not always close the front door. There is really not much I can do about this! I'm sorry you did not mention this to me as I could have explained this to you! I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip. Regards, Ruth

"The wifi didn't work!"
"Ask for a room at the front of the cottage"
"No tips available as we only saw two of the rooms. One was facing a wall and our room looking into the house across the street"
"There are only 3 rooms, 2 doubles and one with 3 singles. The rooms were all beautifully furnished and just like home!"
"Of the three rooms at Braeside Bed and Breakfast ours faced on to Stormy Hill with views as did one other. The third room didn't really have a view - but was still a lovely spacious room! The breakfast room is very bright and welcoming and there is a communal lounge for guests. We were given a key and were free to come and go as we wished."
