  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

  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.

  18. Great location and spacious

    Huge kitchen/dining room and large living room 2 very large bathrooms and 1 small one Great location -walkable to Portree Washer and drier look new Responsive management Lacks some essentials eg (salad bowl and salad servers) but management notified and responsive to correct This was a great location for a 4 nights to visit Skye - every hike we did was just a 20-30 minute drive away (Fairy Glen and Uig, Old Man of Storr, and Fairy Pools). It was nice to walk into Portree for dinner in the evenings.

    Excellent holiday cottage with everything you'll need for an excellent stay. No complaints whatsoever 👌. We would definitely return. It's only 5 mins walk from everything which was great to walk to the town and not to be driving everywhere. Thanks 👏

  22. Wonderful Stay

    The photos do not do the home any justice. The home is very spacious and very comfortable. Our group of 7 adults had a wonderful time and never felt like we were crowded. The location is great for walking into Portree or driving to many other locations.

    Lovely cottage, clean and great location and value for money. Only downside was did nit leave tea towels which we had to go buy. Also if you have this booked bring your own coffee. Does nit supply enough for 6 adults. But all in all a lovely place to stay.

  24. The Cairnmhor House, Portree

    Our party of 4 had a wonderful stay at the above property. The house is clean, spacious and properly maintained. The kitchen is huge and is equipped with everything that we needed. The beds are comfortable. The master bathroom and the common bathroom are very big and it was also very convenient to have the smaller ensuite bathroom in one of the bedrooms. We love to laze around in the living room which has a beautiful view of the lake. The house is located a very convenient and easy 10m stroll from the town centre (its a nice walk by the river too) where there are many cute shops, nice restaurants and a co-op for groceries. The host is very responsive and helpful in his communication from the get-go. He gave us many recommendations to good restaurants which enabled us to make advance bookings. I had a slight problem with the shower tap on the first day and contacted the host very early in the morning. He actually sent someone over to fix the problem before 9am! If we ever came back to Portree even with a bigger group we will choose the Cairnmhor House again because we are sure that we will have another great stay at the property!

  30. Ideal place near centre of Portree

    This is a lovely place to stay. Glorious view from front of house and Large and welcoming reception areas. Plenty of room for 8 (large) adults. The situation is perfect. a short walk into Portree < 5mins and all its amenities; meaning you can have a drink without falling foul of Scotland's draconian Drink/Drive regulations. Highly recommend Fish restaurant in the Harbour.

  32. Fantastic stay

    Our stay at Cairnmhor was excellent. The property was stunning and better than expected. Just a 10 minute walk into Portree meant this was a fantastic location and a half our drive to most attractions on the Isle of Skye. We will definitely be back at the property and will recommend it to family and friends.

  33. We will be back

    What a beautiful house! It is located on a quiet side street and there is parking for several cars on the property. The city center is easily accessible on foot. The house is comfortably furnished, pleasantly warm and very clean. The kitchen is huge, but still cozy and very well equipped. Six people can comfortably sit in the living room. We felt very comfortable there.

  34. Amazing house in a perfect location - as nice as it looks in the photos

    I would absolutely rent this house again. It was spacious and clean with a beautiful view of the harbour and within an easy walk of town. The kitchen was well appointed (just need a large fry pan for the induction stove) and all 3 bathrooms were modern and clean. I would love to visit this house again one day.

    The property whilst being cosy with nice showers was poorly equipped for a group of 6. Modern bathroom and en-suite however rest of the property needs upgrading. The property is in a good location and within easy walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and attractions in Portree.

  39. Great location and lovely views

    Somewhat difficult to find at first. But once here we enjoyed the spacious layout, the well equipped kitchen and the ensuite bathrooms. A cosy property that was easy to hear. Close to Portree town centre (5 mins, walk) and supermarket (20 mins walk) Not 5 stars as it lacked information on how guests were to use the property. On the pricey side for a property of this size and facilities.

  40. Amazing place to stay

    This opened up for two nights about 1 week before we left for Scotland, and I jumped on it so we'd have two nights in one spot. SO glad I did! This place is beautiful, in a wonderful location, and made our stay on the Isle of Skye even more special. We stayed in Scotland for 10 days, and this was EASILY one of our top stays! We had never used an induction cooktop before, but asked the staff who got back to us immediately. It was larger than we needed, but wouldn't have changed a thing!
