You will love the warmth and friendliness of Joanne and Donnie. They make you feel at home. They are also very knowledgeable about the area and details in general. Great conversation. The room was nice with a large bathroom; best shower ever!! The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful and care was taken with presentation. One evening Joanne said their friend had just caught some trout and asked if we would like smoked trout for breakfast. I am so happy we said yes because it was the best I have ever had!! We spent 3 nights here and enjoyed every minute. Our room had a lovely view of the garden and lake. It is also only a ten minute walk to town. Stay here and you will have a pleasant time.

My partner and I stayed at Auch-an Doune a few weeks ago over the weekend of the Isle of Skye half-marathon.

Joanne and Donnie could not have been friendlier hosts, catering to my runner's needs with little touches such as extra towels, an early breakfast and even saving the race newspaper article!

Our room was warm and comfy and the breakfasts were excellent, especially the haddock. The location is ideal for a short walk into Portree even if my knees didn't think so after the race.

Thank you for a lovely stay & we hope to return in the future.

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights in May 2014 and were very pleased. We had the room at the back of the house with a wonderful view of the back garden. The room was a very good size with plenty of storage. The bathroom was large and the shower had very good water pressure. The Wi-Fi worked well and there was tea/coffee service in the room. Joanne & Donnie prepared a wonderful breakfast with great attention to detail. The view from the backyard was great and it was nice to relax and take in the scenery. The walk to town only took 10 minutes or so and was quite enjoyable. Plenty of places to eat, drink and shop in Portree. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms but we really enjoyed the view from the back room.

We stayed with Joanne and Donnie in May 2014. On arrival you get a key to the room and the front door. Breakfast is about 8.00 am. It's better than a hotel. We had a big en-suite room with wi-fi, TV, etc. Joanne and Donnie are gracious hosts and looked after us well. It is a short walk into Portree and shorter than other more expensive locations. The bedroom was excellent, the breakfast was excellent and our hosts were excellent. What else do you need to know. Give it a try. Just do it.

My wife and I stayed at Auch-an-Doune for three nights, April 19-21, 2014. We would happily stay there again. Joanne and Donnie are very kind and gracious hosts. They really take care of their guests, down to having a number of hiking guides, brochures, and maps available for those wanting to see the Isle of Skye.

Portree itself is ideally situated for seeing the isle. Auch-an-Doune is an easy 10 minute walk from the town square or harbor, where you'll find all sorts of restaurants and shops. The B&B is on a main road leading into town, thus easy to find. Our room lacked for nothing - very clean and comfortable. There's free parking and wi-fi, too. Breakfast was always great!

Again, highly recommended!

We had a lovely stay in this very welcoming B&B last summer. Joanne and Donnie were very welcoming and gave us ideas as to best enjoy Skye. Great view from the veranda where we had breakfast in the morning, with delicious jams and Scottish breakfast. Just a few minutes away from the centre of Portree and the bus stop. We will come back !

Lovely gem of a place that we booked last minute. Really welcoming, cosy and charming wee room. Delicious breakfast in a lovely conservatory! The hosts were so friendly and helpful, suggesting lots of nice places to visit, (particularly the fairy pools where I had a great swim!) just a few minutes from the town centre, but also a lovely, quiet nights sleep.
Will definitely be back! :-D
