A true family business exceptionally run. We were made to feel so welcome and they were so knowledgeable and helpful. Just what you need when visiting Skye.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for two nights while we were on a tour of the island. Gillian was very nice and prepared a delicious breakfast for us each morning. The rooms were very clean and came equipped with a kettle and a variety teas.

Lovely stay at White Heather made very welcome by Gillian and Craig, room and shower room beautiful with lovely views across harbour both from bedroom and dining room, good breakfast and parking available on site. Owners very helpful about where to eat etc as the hotel does not provide evening meals. Will definitely return but will not wait 47 years.

They could not have been more helpful. Our room, Milovaig, had a view of the harbour and castles ruins on the hill beyond. This might...

We were blessed with terrific weather and so saw Kyleakin in a wonderful light. This is a wee gem of a guest house. Very welcoming owners, the room was not huge but very clean and had a wonderful view of the wee harbour and the ruin overlooking the village. The bathroom was perfectly fine and the shower spacious and powerful....

The hotel is not posh, but it is clean and has everything you could want. The welcome and hospitality are excellent and nothing seems too much trouble. It welcomes dogs and the extra cost of dogs is tiny compared to most places.I look forward to staying there again.

Gillian and Craig are lovely. They have supplied every amenity you can think of. There are two sitting rooms, a kitchenette, parking...there is even a usb outlet! For a great view, to boot, get the Glenelg room.
