About the owners

Fiona & David

Listed since April 2021

We are Fiona and David and English pointer Ben and have lived on the magical Isle of Skye for over ten years. We want our guests to come somewhere comfortable and memorable and always focus on small touches and details to make guests feel at home. In our spare time we canoe, bike or hike and explore every coffee shop we can find so we can give lots of tips on where to go, not just on Skye but further afield.

Owner recommendations

  • Explore the fairy tale castle of Eilean Donan or head to Dunvegan Castle, the home of the Clan Macleod.

  • Try some incredible seafood. You’ll be spoilt for choice on Skye. Choose from fresh shellfish, hand-dived scallops, rope grown oysters and lobsters and langoustines straight off the boats.

  • Skye’s Jurassic coast boasts world-beating scenery. From the jaw-dropping views of the Trotternish Ridge, the Storr and Quirang head down to the coast to seek out the dinosaur footprints at Staffin – they’re all worth checking out!

  • Whether you are a competent mountaineer, an adventurous hillwalker or whether you simply prefer a gentle stroll, you will find scenery to amaze you at every turn. There are many expert climbing guides to choose from if you’d like a helping hand.

  • Take a wildlife tour – there’s otters, seals, dolphins and whales or look up to spot soaring golden eagles and their larger cousins the sea eagle.
