the breakfast was GREAT.

What nice people and dog to stay with. Scamp retired himself from sheep gathering and greets all with equal affection. Chris and Jana are very welcoming-- just try and get her to make you a fruit or chocolate muffin! They are superb. With a dry sense of humour Chris at first seems difficult to appreciate but more hospitable people were not found in our three weeks in Bonnie Scotland --- on tour. Even presented us with a card and box of chocs for our wedding anniversary--- 1966 was a good year.
Thank you Chris, Jana and of course Scamp.

Room Tip: face the sea for a morning view you will love.

When we booked we were so excited at the sound of this place but the reality was very different. First, there was no breakfast on offer at all so we had to go to the (awful) hotel across the road for it. The owner had mentioned on the phone when we booked that there were hens (that our daughter apparently could collect eggs from) and otters and other nice things around the property to see. None of that was apparent or mentioned. No WiFi (or at least nobody told us there was any). Worst thing though was that during our entire stay of 3 nights nobody actually made up the beds or cleaned our room. That's a first in all my travelling experience. All in all quite a sad end to our holiday in Scotland.

We ended up staying here by accident but it was a brilliant accident. Chris could not have been more helpful or accomodating . Thank you for a great stay. Loved the ducklings.
Comments from daughters "very nice indeed. Best B and B I have ever stayed in in my years" " very homely and cosy. Really happy here"

Room Tip: We had the top right bedroom with a wonderful view.

Friendly landlord running this nice, clean and homish B&B at a great location in Kyleakin, with a view of the bay and mainland. Really good breakfast at nearby Kings Arms Hotel included in price. Parking just outside. Good WI-FI. Perfect when you just arrive at Isle of Skye to relax and plan your next moves.

When we arrived in Kyleakin, we were booked at the Kings Arms Hotel, but they had double booked our room and sent us here to the Rainbow View B&B -- we could not have been more lucky. Chris, the owner, is the nicest, friendliest man (with a cute dog) who is so helpful in giving advice about places to see on the Isle of Skye and elsewhere in Scotland. The room was lovely, with a beautiful view of the loch and Skye bridge. You cannot book this room online as of now, but take the time to call because it is the same price as the hotels you are able to book online but a MUCH nicer place to stay. There is also a room upstairs that is perfect for a family as there are two separate areas, one for kids and one for parents. I could not say enough nice things about this wonderful B&B.

Thanks Chris for a great stay at your place, the breakfast was one of the highlights of our holiday, especially the haggis and the eggs which were just laid that morning. Thanks for welcoming us to your place, the room was great for our family, with 2 older kids that are near but also getting their own space was ideal, hopefully it won't be too long until we're back.
