“Exceptional B&B”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

We stayed May 21 & 22 and had a great time. Our hosts were warm, friendly and really helpful. The accomodations were comfortable and a quick hop into city center.

Bob offered us a map of local 'must see' locations and we followed it like a treasure map, looking for the island's most stunning locations.

Food at breakfast was really great, including fresh fruit, a welcome touch.

Dinner suggestions were great "The Cafe" is a real gem.

You will have a great time here.

Reviewed 24 April 2012

We stayed for two days over Easter, been very happy. Bob and Norma were extremely helpful and friendly. He has offered a self-made map with ten kind of secret or inside spots on the isle that you would not find anywhere else - we've been quite impressed by the Fairy Glen. Also knows good dinner places. Our room was large with a big bed, big wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom as big as the bedroom in your standard B&B. Ah, and it has a big bathtub! Breakfast is the usual thing, you can even get Porridge if you ask for it. The location is not central, but easily walkable, about 15 minutes downhill. Highly recommended, we'd definitely go again.

My husband and I stayed at Bruach na Frithe for 3 nights late October 2011. The accommodation was warm, very comfortable and extremely spacious. Bob and Norma were very friendly and Bob kindly provided us with a printed map clearly marked with many places of interest from which we spent a wonderful day exploring the north of the island. We are sure we would not have seen so much without Bob's help. The breakfast was excellent too.

Room Tip: Would recommend the double en suite with large corner bath

Seven days in this beautiful establishment on the outskirts of Portree left us with memories of a hearty welcome and seven hearty breakfasts!!!
Spacious room with all facilities.
Warm, caring owners who certainly go the extra mile as evidenced by the discovery of night attire washed and ironed, half way through our stay!!

My wife and I were recently holidaying in Britain from Australia, as part of the holiday we stayed at this bed and breakfast while visiting Skye.
This spotless establishment was outstanding, the bedroom was big, the breakfast was hearty and made fresh every morning, really setting you up for the whole day. It is a short and pleasant walk into Portree.
Bob and Norma are excellent hosts, with Bob very keen to advise of place to visit, which are not on any of the tourists maps.
I have stayed at numerous bed and breakfasts over the years, however this has been the best of them all.
I thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Skye
