Just a short walk to the centre of Portree, Tigh Na Coille, Bed & Breakfast offers quiet, comfortable accommodation with shops, restaurants, pubs, bus station, library, bank and the harbour, all within easy reach.
Tigh Na Coille offers three guest bedrooms; one double, one twin and a single/small double. We can also provide a camp bed for either the double or twin room for an extra guest.
All rooms have access to tea & coffee making facilities and their own TV with digital channels and dvd player.
We do our best to provide comfortable, clean accommodation and offer free internet and safe, secure off-street parking.
Our rooms are NOT en-suite but our two clean, modern bathrooms provide ample facilities to enable easy sharing between the three guest rooms. Guests have a choice between a long, hot soak in our downstairs bathroom or a quick steamy shower in our upstairs shower room. Facilities are checked throughout the day to ensure they are constantly clean and tidy.
Our kitchen area is off limits to guests but we do provide a microwave in our dining area and dinner ware for those who request it. We can also store any food or drinks in our fridge.
Guests are encouraged to help themselves to books, dvds and games that they find in the hallway. We also have extra information about things to do and see on Skye which you can find in the dining room through out the day.
We like to make our guests as relaxed as possible and help in any way we can to make their visit to the Isle of Skye most enjoyable.
Every person is different and we like to think we can tell if our guests want to be left to their own devices or if they need some help from us with regards to getting the most out of their stay on the island.
We are happy to offer suggestions about places of interest or tour guides/trips/walks. Whether you are a keen walker, a food or whisky enthusiast, researching your family history, taking in the museums and castles, or you want to watch the abundant wildlife – it’s all here for the asking in this truly beautiful part of the world.
This is our family home and we live on the premises. We both have jobs and therefore are not available at all times. Guests have their own set of keys and can come and go as they please throughout their stay with us.
We try our best to be flexible with regards to checking in times. We prefer to check in guests after 4pm but are happy for those who need to leave luggage to do so before this time….or even after they have checked out if they are waiting a long time for buses etc.
We have two dogs on the premises but they are never allowed in the guest rooms and we make a conscious effort to keep them behind closed doors whilst our guests are around. They are both very friendly and we are happy to introduce them to any fellow dog lovers.
Anyone travelling to Skye by public transport should try their best to research how they intend to get around on the island as not all places are easily accessible by local bus.
There are car hire companies in Portree and tour guides and taxis. We are more than happy to provide details of each and advise those who are not sure of their options.
Emma is just too kind for words. She is an excellent host with a wonderful smile to first greet you at the door or first thing in the morning. Her breakfast is amazing
Clean and spacious room with the most comfortable bed in the world (probably ;-))
I will stay there again when I visit Skye again
We slept one night at Emma's place. The room was amazing, the bed was very comfy but we had to share the bathroom. Emma is really really nice. The breakfast was excellent !! We highly recommend the room
My boyfriend and I just stayed one night here, but we had a good time. The room was awesome and the breakfast even better! ;)
Perfect location for quickly getting into town. We walked to dinner in the town center easily. It was nice having two bathrooms available.
Emma was great. George was friendly and helpful on arrival and it was a pleasure to meet him. The house is very clean and orderly. It is a great location in Portree and very professionally run. Emma gave me good advice about walks and driving times, which made for a good day out. I would recommend and stay again. Thank you.
Room and bathroom were clean and nice. Breakfast was good. Overall good for a quick stay. Place was a little card to find but fine once we got in touch and got directions.
Emma was a friendly and communicative person. The room was really nice, the hot shower was sufficient and the breakfast she prepared was really really tasty, we had a relaxed stay, thanks :)
Emma and George are friendly (as is their dog Milo) and the room was clean, breakfasts were really nice, and shared bathrooms worked fine. We also liked meeting George's mum Helen. We appreciated being able to use the breakfast room during the day for card games and using our computer.
Great place to stop close to to the city center, and to explore the Isle of Skye.
- Great breakfast.
- No problems with the shower in the morning.
- Cozy room.
