The Rowans Bed & Breakfast

B&B

The Rowans, Portnalong, Carbost, Isle Of Skye, IV47 8SL

    4-star Bed and Breakfast with a difference The Rowans is different to most B & Bs.

    We offer 4-star service and comfort, but with the added flexibility and privacy of a self-contained suite.

    Your accommodation is a one-bedroom annexe with its own shower room, kitchen/diner and separate entrance, so you can come and go as you please. We supply you daily with everything you need to make a substantial continental breakfast and packed lunch, in your own kitchen, so that you are not restricted to fixed breakfast times and don't have to choose from menus the night before. So if you are walking or climbing, you can be in the hills at first light, or if you are having a lazy day you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast in your pyjamas.

    At home, you don't pay to fill your flask, borrow maps, dry your clothes, use the Internet or make a packed lunch. We won't charge you either - we want you to feel at home.

    Situated at Portnalong in the stunning Minginish Peninsula, we are close to the Talisker Distillery, and within easy reach of Sligachan, Glenbrittle and the Cuillins. There are walks to suit all abilities nearby, local pubs with food, and a small shop at Carbost.

    The Rowans offers unrivalled comfort as a base for climbing, walking, birdwatching or exploring Skye, or just a lazy break from the frantic pace of modern life. We look forward to welcoming you at The Rowans!

    Road Directions

    Skye is connected to the mainland by a road bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh. The bridge was initially a toll bridge but is now free. Once on the island, turn right at the roundabout towards Broadford. Follow the A87 through Broadford and via Sconser to Sligachan. At the Sligachan Hotel, turn left onto the A863 for Dunvegan. Turn left at the B8009 proceeding through Carbost, past the Talisker Distillery, up the hill and through Fernilea, following Loch Harport. At Portnalong, turn left toward Fiskavaig. The Rowans is the first house on the left. Time from Kyle of Lochalsh: 50 minutes. NOTE: if you use a SatNav, make sure it does not direct you via Mallaig unless you have planned to cross by ferry.

    Public Transport Directions

There is also a bus service from Portree to Fiskavaig, which passes the house.

If you are flying, the most practical arrangement is to hire a car at the airport. From Edinburgh, take the M90 and A9 up to Inverness. From Inverness, take the A82 to Invermoriston and then the A887 and A87 to Kyle. From Glasgow, take the A82 through Fort William and up to the A87 at Invergarry, then on to Kyle.
