  1. Great facility for a family getaway

    My family and I had a short stay up in Skye and Cairnmhor was a great location to explore Skye from. The house is clean, tidy and very well organised, its spacious for 8 adults with comfortable clean beds. The house was beautifully decorated and everything was good quality. The best we can say is that when we return to Skye in a large group we will book again. What would make it even better would be small changes to the master bedroom mirror (for straightening and drying hair), clearer recycling information and add a small pod based coffee machine for guest use....

  2. Very enjoyable stay in Cairnmhor House

    We had a wonderful week at Cairnmhor House, in mid-August. On arrival, the property was very clean and tidy. The kitchen is very spacious and well equipped, and the bedrooms and bathrooms very comfortable and acceptable. The living room is also spacious and has a marvellous view across Portree Bay towards some mountains. The property is conveniently positioned, so that we were able to see everything we wanted to see on the island with only an hour or so's drive. My only reservations about the property is that many of the doorways and the bedroom corridor were a bit narrow for my electric wheelchair, and the wet room shower was a bit of a tight fit for my shower chair. Only the middle bedroom was accessible for me. That niggle apart, we were generally very happy with the property and with our stay there. In particular, I would like to praise the manager Ben, who couldn't have been more helpful in every way, clearly determined that nothing should stop us having a great time. I would definitely recommend Cairnmhor House to anyone else planning a holiday in Skye. I hope you have as good a time as we did. Jonathan, Cherry, Mum and carers

  3. The perfect combination of beauty, comfort and location!

    We are a group of friends travelling from Edinburgh to visit Skye for our first time. We stayed at John/Ben's accommodation and it was beautiful. The perfect central location on the island allowed us to reach all the main attractions very easily with out car. The house was very clean, provided with all the comforts, a very great option for a holiday with friend groups or family. The communication with John was great. John and Ben are great hosts and all of us give the highest rate as everything was perfect. We all strongly advise to choose John/Ben's accomodation for your trip. Francesca

  8. Lovely place but not always helpful

    Booked this place in 2019 for the 2020 Summer Half marathon. Unfortunately co-vid delayed plans. We were refused a cash refund and instead told we could book any other place whenever properties could reopen. We picked a later date however were told this would be another £314. We begrudgingly paid this as we could not go any other dates. We still really enjoyed our trip. The house was beautiful and perfectly placed to see the island and have local amenities for the evening. We were under the impression that a BBQ would be at the house however there wasn't one when we got there. After texting the owners they dropped one round the next day. Thank you! Really nice place but bit of a ballache organising it

    Lovely bungalow, beautiful large kitchen diner with all modern appliances. Central to all amenities. Great big garden unfortunately weather didn’t allow us to enjoy it, but didn’t stop us from having a good time.

  11. A little bit of TLC!

    Positives: Convenient and quiet location. spacious accommodation and garden, clean and tidy rooms,modern appliances. Negatives: lack of signposting to accommodation, old and modern rooms with mismatched furniture, musty smell in en-suite bedroom, old fashioned wallpaper, artex ceilings, loose plumbing in bath, dead flies on bathroom ceiling , unsecured microwave , rotten window frames and soffits, garden needs tidied up, remove garage door from hedge! Don’t let the negatives put you off. We would return. Constructive criticism provided to company. It is a lovely house that is crying out for just a little tlc!

    Thank you for making us feel welcome. You have a beautiful home catering for our every need. I can say we stayed in luxury for the three nights we spent in Portree. The home was an excellent base for us to explore Skye. Thank you once again.
