The Anchorage B&B
on the Isle of Skye

B&B details at a glance
  • Twin & double bedrooms
  • Overlooks Loch Bracadale
  • 7 miles from Dunvegan
  • 14 miles from Portree
Situated on a 65 acre working croft, The Anchorage B&B affords Highland hospitality in a picturesque setting. We offer the perfect opportunity for guests who wish to relax in the peace of the countryside.
Yet we are just a short 20 minute drive from the island's capital, Portree. And we're well placed for visiting Dunvegan Castle, the coral beaches, Neist Point Lighthouse, Talisker Distillery and all of North Skye.

The house faces west and overlooks Loch Bracadale and the Ose river estuary towards the unique mountains known as MacLeod’s Tables. Sunsets are often spectacular. Most of our bedrooms have this view.

The shore is immediately accessible from the house. The estuary is the home territory of herons, ducks, oyster catchers and seals. It has recently become the summer home of a flock of geese. If you are lucky, you may see the local otters in the river mouth.

Unwind in this peaceful crofting setting. Awake to the sound of seabirds, watch seals playing in the loch or sunbathing on the rocks at low tide, or spot the heron fishing at sunset.

We are easily reached from the mainland and from any part of Skye.

  • Portree 14 miles

We are happy to offer advice on what to see and where to go on Skye. For example, Dunvegan Castle is the ancient seat of the Chief of the Clan MacLeod. You can tour the castle and see the famous Fairy Flag, explore the gardens and take a boat trip to see seals on the loch.

There are several excellent restaurants within a short driving distance of The Anchorage including the Old School Restaurant in Dunvegan.

You can browse through some of their menus and leaflets in the lounge, and we are happy to help with your dinner reservations.
