It took me absolutely ages to find a hotel on Skye that was open at this time of year and that accepted dogs. By the time I found Eilean Iarmain I was quite exasperated and would have accepted anything so I promptly reserved our room without hesitation.

The barman was cherry and very helpful and the food was very good, wholesome and delicious. There was some lovely Scottish music playing which added to the atmosphere and...

Fantastic little hotel really enjoyed my stay here. It has amazing views around it. Nice rooms. The bar is great for a drink and the food is really good. The Gaelic whisky is nice to. It is an older hotel so please don't expect anything modern not that this is a bad thing.
