White Heather Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Kyleakin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2014

A lovely hotel, with every comfort including free use of a kitchenette/washer/dryer. Comfortable rooms, beautifully decorated, so many little extras considered and we were made to feel very welcome. Lots of information, choice of two lounges to use, and owners only to happy to help in any way that they could. Looking forward to going again.

Just back from a trip to Scotland. We spent 2 days on the Isle of Skye and the weather was beautiful. We spent the night at the White Heather and could not have been more comfortable. Our room looked out over the harbour and had all the little things that made it comfortable. The breakfast was superb! Many thanks to Gillian for making our stay so enjoyable. Hope to be back some day.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the White Heather, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Gillian was more than welcoming, and cheerfully helped us out with anything we needed, including spending a little time with their dogs, as we were missing ours back home!
The room was great, beautiful view of the harbor, marina and castle Moil. Very comfortable bed, and everything we needed amenity wise. The breakfast was delicious, and always served to order. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor front room!

I stayed at the White Heather while on a 3 day tour with Discover Scotland Tours. My 2 teenage daughters and I stayed in the family room, and it was very comfortable and clean. There was a tea pot in the room, biscuits, and tea, 2 lounges downstairs, and the breakfast was to die for- an assortment of cold cereals, bagels, eggs, sausage or bacon, croissants, juice- we left every day happy and very full !!! Gillian is very friendly, and made us feel very welcome. We loved Skye, and the White Heather was great!!

We spent only a night here (got a flat tire on our drive up and was not able to get up there for our first night), but it was wonderful! Gillian was so kind, informative, and helpful, and the family room we stayed in was perfect for our family of 4 (kids 13 and 9) - it's one of the few places we could just rent one room. Kyleakin was quieter than other towns on the isle, which we liked, but the views are just as stunning. We had a great meal at Saucy Mary's nearby, and a very nice walk along the water in the twilight!

Room Tip: Ask for the family suite if travelling with kids - it's cozy, but very nice.

Had a great time at the White Heather Hotel, well maintained B&B, clean room with great breakfast. Perfect and charming host. Sleep quality however could have been better. Pillows were a bit to tall and hard for my taste, had some so-so nights because of it.

If you go to the isle of Skye and plan to do some hiking and explore the region, I would recommend staying in or near Portree instead of Kyleakin, for it is a much more central place!

Cheers!

We recently spent 3 nights at the White Heather hotel. We have mixed views about our stay.
Gillian is really helpful and friendly and is the perfect host. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice, lovely yoghurts, fruit, cereals, cooked breakfast - we cannot fault it.
However, we were disappointed with our room. It is so small with old-fashioned wallpaper and carpets. The furniture is a bit dilapidated and the bathroom was all pine and it all felt a bit "tired". We had just about enough room to walk round the double bed, which was a smallish double as well.
We had a nice view over the harbour, which was a plus point. However, if you are staying in the Isle of Skye for a few days and want to explore, Kyleakin is too far out. Portree is a central point (30 miles away) and we wished that we had stayed in Portree as we kept driving up the same bit of road.
However, all in all, we had an enjoyable stay. The Taste of India in Kyleakin is very good - big portions so don't over order like we did. The Isle of Skye is beautiful but you do need to allow for long journeys as everything seems to take twice as long to get to.
