We (my 21 year old daughter and I) enthusiastically recommend this wonderful Bed and Breakfast! We spent three nights in An Cnoc, Dianne's beautiful croft house in the midst of green and golden sheep fields near Staffin on the Isle of Skye!
Our room was lovely, with careful attention to details both in the upkeep of the house as well as the amenities provided. The room and house in general were very clean, and our room was diligently serviced and refreshed every day while we were out roaming the gorgeous countryside of Skye. It was extraordinarily easy to understand the usual Bed and Breakfast logistics (breakfast order and time, wifi code, etc.) due to Dianne's streamlined introduction upon our arrival. Dianne was very personable and humorous, and we enjoyed our daily morning conversations about local sites and attractions over breakfast. (We went on two hikes during our stay, for which Dianne, as a lifelong resident of Skye, had useful and applicable advice.) Speaking of breakfast, it was fantastic, with a plethora of selections to make both a vegetarian and a plain-foods eater deliriously happy.
The location is excellent, on the Trotternish Peninsula of Skye, close to some of the best scenery on the Island, including the Quiraing (majestic Lord-of-the-Rings-esque hills with awesome rock formations), the Old Man of Storr (165 foot tall monolith), Kilt Rock, and sweeping coastline.
Be sure to check out the hiking books in the entry foyer; the 40 Walks on Skye offers an array of spectacular hikes in the fantastic Isle of Skye!
We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you Dianne!
