Isle of Skye | Bed & Breakfast


Spindrift is a bed & breakfast located on the West coast of Skye in the small crofting township of Balmeanach.

Secluded and peaceful, surrounded by heather and grass covered land, with far reaching views to the Cuillin mountains to the South and MacLeod's tables to the West. A short stroll from the shores of Loch Caroy, yet just a 10-minute drive to the village of Dunvegan with its shops, cafes, restaurants and Dunvegan castle.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home and we will endeavour to make your stay as memorable and comfortable as possible.

From Portree.

From Portree take the A87 towards Dunvegan and Uig, shortly thereafter turn left up the Struan Road B885 at the Howdens Industrial Unit. This is a single-track road.

Travel along this road (approximately 10 miles) until you reach Bracadale. Turn right onto the A863 and continue on this road passing through the township of Struan, continue on to Ose (3 miles).

Keep an eye out for the red phone box on your right, slow down. There will now be a sign post directing you to turn right to Balmeanach.

Head up Balmeanach road through a small cluster of houses. As you pass through an S bend the landscape will open up in front of you. Look ahead now (400 meters) for the white two-story dwelling with the large triangular window in the gable end. Welcome to Spindrift.
