Isle of Skye | Bed & Breakfast

About

A very warm welcome awaits you at Eubhal House Bed and Breakfast, your home from home on the Isle of Skye.

Our modern detached bungalow with feature conservatory is located in an elevated position in the rural crofting township of Borve. Spectacular views can be seen towards the Cuillin Mountains, Dunvegan Hills and Loch Snizort Beag towards the Hebridean Sea to the North.

Eubhal House is located adjacent to a red deer farm and deer may be viewed from the rooms and the Conservatory at various times of the day.

Despite our rural location, the islands capital Portree is only five minutes’ drive away with its shops, bars and restaurants. This makes Eubhal House a good central location from where to explore the Isle of Skye and is near the A87 route for the Western Isles Ferry.

Attractions such as The Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, Museum of Highland Life, Faery Glen, Dunvegan Castle and Talisker Distillery are all within a half hour drive way.

We offer a recently renovated deluxe super king ensuite room with modern facilities for our guests comfort and convenience. Relax in our dining conservatory and enjoy looking at beautiful sunsets or spotting deer who are bred in the farm next door as well as other wildlife abundant in the area. With no light pollution, the heavens can be clearly seen and if you are lucky the northern lights.
