This is my second time on the Isle of Skye and won't be my last. I visited about 4 years ago and stayed in the B&B that Elaine has just for a couple of nights and it was a fantastic stay in a lovely setting. So on my second trip up there i looked at Lochview straight away.
As it was a bit later in the year (November) i decided to look at the other property Elaine has which is a full house not just B&B. Well i wasn't disappointed, the property is fantastic,clean actually felt like a brand new property, everything you need cooker,toaster,microwave,kettle all pots and pans in fact all you need to take is food.The Bathroom was spotless and the power shower was amazing. The bedroom was massive and the bed was huge. All in all a fantastic stay in an amazing place. The views out of both front and rear of the property are both stunning.
Will i be on Skye again? Absolutely.
Will Lochview be my first choice again? It's bookmarked and on speed dial.
Thanks Elaine for a great stay.
After a hectic month of travelling this peaceful oasis was just what we needed. The location was perfect, only a short drive into Portree but far enough out to give peace and quiet and the most stunning views. The rooms are huge so plenty of space to spread out and the whole chalet has been beautifully decorated with so much thought and care. Large fully equipped kitchen with all the essentials so we were able to self cater and have a break from the eating out routine. All the comforts of home which made it hard to leave at the end of our stay!
This was a great find for our stay on the misty isle of Skye. Just 10 min from Portree (for restaurants) and en route to the Quiraing and ferry to the Outer Isles - so a perfect location. As mentioned by other guests, the house has a lovely view over a loch in front and bucolic fields dotted with sheep in the back. The house was spotless and very nicely appointed. In particular, loved the kitchen! The place was also very spacious and nicely laid out. The house is on the same property as the owner's own house but she was very respectful of our privacy. The only minor issue we had was with the sofa bed which was uncomfortable and required supplemental padding to prevent the springs from poking into your back. But overall, highly recommended.
The place is very well maintained and well decorated.
Beautiful view on a lake and on the back of the house.
Nice open kitchen with all the ustensiles and appliances you need.
Very large choice of tv channels.
We had an amazing stay here.
Our Lochview accommodation was on top of a rise with a wonderful view of a sea loch in front and a view of a field of sheep out the kitchen window, in the back of the house. We were very thrilled to have great scenery from all vantage points. The house was very clean and had modern fixtures with clever, thoughtful decorations.
The location is very convenient for the many stunning walks and sights in the northern parts of the island, including Kilt Rock, Fairy Glen, Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing. It's also conveniently located only 10 minutes from Portree. The chalet itself is very comfortable with a large living and kitchen area with beautiful views from the balcony, a big bedroom and a double walk in shower.
