Strathearn is a modern purpose built Bed and Breakfast home and working croft centrally situated between Portree and Dunvegan overlooking Loch Greshornish, with sea views to Loch Snizort, Uig Bay and the Outer Isles. We serve a delicious home cooked breakfast with bacon and sausage made by ourselves using our own croft reared pigs, and eggs from our hens and ducks.
Strathearn B and B and croft is situated in the north of the Isle of Skye in the small crofting township of Kildonan midway between Portree, 11 miles away and Dunvegan, 10 miles away, giving easy access to all the attractions Skye has to offer.

Our home and croft is on the hillside overlooking and with access to Loch Grehornish with wide reaching sea views to the Outer Hebrides. We are in an excellent position to view the Northern Light (Aurora Borealis) when they put on a display. We show these and other pictures of life on the croft on our Facebook page. The nearest village, Edinbane, is 2 miles away with an award winning restaurant serving local produce and a village pub serving food and hosting regular scottish music sessions.

We can advise you about walks ranging from a local stroll around the township road with views over Loch Snizort and the Trotternish ridge and up to Flashader Dun to more strenuous longer walks in the various areas of Skye depending on your preferences and fitness!.
