We've just spent our first ever holiday in the Highlands and Islands, and Skye was part of the itinerary. We made an inspired choice with Ashaig. Colin and Kathleen are warm-hearted, witty and highly experienced guesthouse proprietors. Their house is modern, spacious, and bedecked with tasteful pictures and artefacts to please the eye. And staring out of one of the beautifully appointed bedrooms or standing in their front garden, your eyes feast on a magnificent, narrow sea loch that is mesmerizing and becalming at the same time. You sense you're being drawn into an almost mythical landscape on the remotest edge of Europe. No wonder all the guests we met during our four days at Ashaig hailed from different regions of Europe, as if on some pilgrimage to wondrously scenic and spiritual landscapes. And you don't leave Ashaig for your daily Skye adventure with only a pilgrim's basic fare in your belly. Colin and Kathleen are terrific cooks and bakers of their own bread, cakes (and yummy pancakes), and provide an amazing selection of breakfast options, priding themselves on top quality food and mega portions for the non-faint hearted. All these elements together ensure a Skye high level of satisfaction!
