Fineviews Luxury Bed & Breakfast
Fáilte!! Welcome to Fineviews Bed and Breakfast!!
We are located in Portnalong, Carbost, on the stunning Isle of Skye in the Inner Hebrides, overlooking Loch Harport.
Our accommodation consists of the Nessie Room - a large twin with en-suite facilities; as well as the Highlander suite - a large double room and smaller twin room with shared bathroom, ideal for families. All our rooms are light and comfortable, so you can be sure of a good night's sleep after a day exploring!! We have a travel cot available for little guests, please let us know at the time of booking if you'd like to use this. Please see our 'ACCOMMODATION' section for photos and more details.....
Wi-Fi access is available free of charge to all our guests, and we also have a selection of books and games should you want a break from technology as well!
Our breakfasts, cooked by a chef with over 20 years experience, are the perfect way to start the day - you can't beat the smell of freshly brewed coffe and freshly baked bread made in our kitchen! Your choice of a Full Scottish Breakfast (including Haggis/Veggie Haggis for those who want!), Scottish Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs, as well as all the usual breakfast options are served between 07:30 and 09:30, although if you do need breakfast outside of these times just ask, we're very flexible! Please let us know at the time of booking if you have anyone in your party has any special dietary requirements.
We are well placed for those wanting to explore the spectacular Cuillin Mountain Range, which has many challenging routes suitable for both walkers and more experienced climbers, with Carbost being situated close to the majestic Black Cuillin, one of the most challenging mountains in Britain. We can supply packed lunches for a small extra charge, and early breakfasts are no problem if you want to be out adventuring before dawn.
Also well worth a look is the varied and often breathtaking Minginish coastline, where stunning waterfalls and a vast array of wildlife can be seen and photographed, including seals, otters and eagles. Of course, if after all that exertion something more relaxing is called for, you can't go far wrong on a tour of the Talisker Distillery - Skye's only whisky distillery - which a just a short drive (or slightly longer walk) into Carbost.
Also offering a very respectable selection of 'wee drams' is the Taigh Ailean Hotel, which is just a 5 minute walk from the house and offers excellent food, as well as Skye's very own ale, every evening throughout the summer.
Carbost itself is roughly 3 miles from the house, and is a small crofting village away from the main tourist trail. In the village you can find all the essentials - shop, petrol station, Post Office, doctors surgery, park and of course, pub! The village is roughly 20 miles from Portree, the main town on the island, and the views of the Cuillins on the way, as well as the lovely local artisan shops in Portee make it well worth a drive.
We are fully non-smoking throughout the house, although we do have an outside seating area perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view over Loch Harport. Unfortunately we do not accept pets, as we have our own two bouncy boxer dogs, who love to play but can sometimes be a bit too boisterous with other dogs!
We really hope you'll come to visit us on the beautiful Isle of Skye, and are sure that you'll fall in love with the island just as we have!!
