“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Stayed here for two nights on 17th June after travelling from Loch Maddy on North Uist. The room was lovely, very large double room and large bathroom. It is only two minutes by car to the centre of Portree and would only take about ten minutes to walk I would think. There is ample parking with room for cars at the front and more space at the back. Norma`s breakfasts are really good and plenty of choice and it is very quiet at night with it being just outside the town of Portree. Bob is very good for information you may need, and he will print off a map and mark where the best sites and attractions are on Skye. We wished we had booked longer at the Bruach na Frithe as two nights is not long enough to see everything on Skye and I am sure we will be back here again. One place not to miss is the Fairy Glenn, it is like something out of the Hobbits with everthing in miniture, hills, trees and the pass through it. Ask Bob for directions as he told us not to miss it and we really enjoyed our visit there. I would highly recommend the Bruach na Frithe as a first class place to stay in a quiet part of Portree.

We stayed two nights at the Bruach na Frithe on the outskirts of Portree. The room was clean and comfortable. Bob has some excellent advice on what to see while on Skye. Norma's breakfast was delicious, the mushrooms were the best we had. The walk to the harbour is a comfortable 15 to 20 minute walk where we found several nice restaurants.

Bob and Norma provided us with simply the best of many pleasant B&B stays on our recent 2-week trip to Scotland. They were welcoming, attentive, and knowledgeable about everything from where to eat to where to walk. Their breakfast provided a choice for all tastes, tea and biscuits in the room (a must for two hikers), a marvellously appointed bathroom and very comfortable large bedroom, all made our stay memorable, despite the constant rain and cloud that reminded us of home!
We recommend Bruach na Frithe (ask Bob re pronunciation!) without reservation.

We stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and 3 year daughter.
We had a large room with a huge baht and bathroom, it was perfect.
Breakfast was really good.
But the top of the top was the hospitality, Bob and Norma are really nice people and do the best they can for you to enjoy your stay, my daughter loved feeding birds with bob, playing with the cat and watching cartoons with Norma. And if we didn ´t have a trip to do I would stay all day talking with bob.
I Will never Forget these people.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights recently. We were given a very warm welcome by Bob and Norma. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were lovely and there was a good choice. The bed was comfortable and we had no problems sleeping. It is also in a good location, just North of Portree and it is possible to walk into Portree from the B and B, but be aware that it is uphill coming back! It was also very quiet at night. We would have no hesitation in recommending this B and B and would happily stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room One which is very spacious and has a huge corner bath and shower in a large en-sui...
