Stayed there for two nights and it was realy great. The beds where the most comfortable ones we had on our two week journey to scotland. Also the hosts are realy nice and like to sit there in the evening and talk to their guest. They had a couple of funny stories for us an some nice tips where to go on the island, all in all we had two great evenings.

They also cood diner for their guest if they want it. I had a realy great scotish steak pie and an absolutly awesome smoked salmon. To round everthing up they are licensed andgot good prices for a realy tatsy beer (even for german standards) and good whisky.

It realy was out best stay during our journey and i will definitly come back to see skye and visit the old post office some day.

Stayed: May 2018, travelled with friends

More than three weeks after our trip I still miss Scotland, and in particularly Skye! What an amazing island and friendly people! We loved staying in the Old Post Office because of the excellent location, the nice and very clean room (with a lovely view!) and last but not least, the hosts, who made us feel very welcome and cooked very tasty food; both for breakfast and dinner; all made with fresh and local produce and accompanied by superb drinks and followed by some very nice and funny stories in the living room, of course with a local whiskey at hand. Can't wait to return!

We stayed 2 nights during Easter. Even though weather was chilly, we had a very enjoyable and cosy stay. Location is somewhat remote, but it is in a very tranquil area of Trottenish Peninsula with easy access to the major sights (Quirang, The Old Man of Storr). We enjoyed both our breakfasts and evening meal-it was nice to be able to dine in (with drinks) after a long day out. Alec and Kathleen were welcoming and hospitable with lots of stories to share. Room was smallish for 3, but comfortable and pristine. It is on 1st floor so there is a flight of steps to carry luggages up.

Alec and Kathleen are great hosts. We stayed there in november and they offered us a perfect bed and breakfast and helped us with good tips during our visit at the Isle of Skye. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

We chose this B&B based on reviews on this site which indicated satisfaction with its comforts and the congeniality of the hosts. It was the last of our B&B stays during our 3 week tour of Scotland and did not compare favourably on either measure with any of our previous stays.
The room was clean but cramped. The bathroom was minuscule and lighting wasn't adequate to put on make-up. The finish and decoration was on the level of well-intentioned DIY. The gentleman host's attempt at hospitality extended to hoary jokes at our expense. We were told we didn't know how to use a light switch because we were "from America" (which we aren't) and that we packed too much (but weren't assisted with carrying it up or down stairs despite having me having a hand injury). I had made the mistake of inquiring before we arrived whether we could cancel the second night's stay since we needed to be in Glasgow to catch our flight and that day was forecast to be horrible weather that would affect transportation. We didn't get a yes or no in response before our arrival. The lady of the house was stony faced when we arrived, barked that "We'd better choose our super now!" - because they stopped serving an hour after we arrived. We would get no refund (not even credit for a breakfast we wouldn't be there to eat). Breakfast was on par with most places, but was served on a small table in their personal living room. There is no common area for clients in the building.
For people who enjoy jokes at their expense and little accommodation, this place may be worth 40 pounds per night per person, not 105 for a couple.
The whole abbreviated stay - which we were forced to pay for - was uncomfortable, unpleasant and borderline insufferable. This was a shame because it was our last stay in Scotland and let us unhappy and tainted our entire experience.
