Because I live on Skye, I don't have a lot of experience of the island's accommodation options. There are other websites, such as Tripadvisor, Airbnb and Visit Scotland where you can read reviews and opinions. All I have done here is to give some guidance on what to look for, based on my general knowledge of the options available on Skye. 

The Isle of Skye is hugely busy every summer. There are times when visitors end up sleeping on the floors of village halls because there are no beds available on the island. So do try to get your place to stay organised in good time!


The Bed and Breakfast business on Skye has a long and honourable history. In days long gone, many crofters would make a bed available to travellers, in a very basic but hospitable way. Today standards are generally very high, and there is what seems to be an inexhaustable supply of accommodation. But the supply is not inexhaustable. The B&B signs along the roadside often all have "No Vacancies" overlays by lunchtime. So booking in advance is a good idea, especially in the main season.

When looking for somewhere to book your B&B, you could do worse than browse these places:

But if you have an idea of where you want to stay, just search the web yourself for "B&B Dunvegan", or "B&B Portree" etc.
