Bed & Breakfast on the Isle of Skye, Scotland
One best known Scottish islands, Skye is particularly famous for its mountain scenery. Many people come here to climb or walk in the Cuillin and the Quiraing. Quite an expanding population since the early 1990s, now there are over 9000 people living on the island.
Skye or the Isle of Skye (Scottish Gaelic: An t-Eilean Sgitheanach or Eilean a' Cheò) is the largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The island's peninsulas radiate out from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillin hills. Although it has been suggested that the first of these Gaelic names describes a "winged" shape there is no definitive agreement as to the name's origins.
A warm welcome awaits you here from Etta Beaton in her comfortable home in Caroy, a quiet crofting township near Dunvegan, on the Isle of Skye, the ancient seat of the clan MacLeod.
It is an ideal centre for touring the island, walking, climbing the renowned Cuillins etc and it is also conveniently situated for day trips by ferry to the Western Isles. Boat trips, visits to the seal colonies in Loch Dunvegan and guided climbs in the Cuillins can all be arranged locally. There are a number of hotels and restaurants in the area offering meals in all price ranges. Gaelic is spoken as a first language by both Mr & Mrs Beaton.
The Isle of Skye is a land of mystique and legend. See an incredible array of wildlife, including eagles, deer, pine martens and wildcats, or take a coastal walk and look out for Minke whales, Orca’s, dolphins, basking sharks, seals and otters.
Relax in the tranquillity and beauty of the unique environment around Caroy from the convenience of our comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation.
