Skeabost, Isle of Skye: Minimoon hotel review

We visited the Isle of Skye for a romantic minimoon to sample the most romantic island in Scotland

The weather wasn’t on our side when we arrived on the picturesque Isle of Skye, but Skeabost, with its roaring fires and four-poster beds, provided the perfect sanctuary from the elements.

It took around three hours to get to from Inverness Airport, but the scenery on the drive was spectacular. The hotel’s surroundings were equally impressive, with the wild sea right on the doorstep, and a golf course within the grounds of the property.

Our room, priced from £99 pp per night B&B, boasted a sumptous four poster bed and a stand-alone roll top bath, which I truly believe no romantic break is complete without.

The hotel is surrounded by awe-inspiring sights including the magical Fairy Glen, which is like being transported into a Disney dream. A trip to Dunvegan Castle is also a must, as is the seal-spotting boat trip in the incredible loch within the castle grounds.

After a day of sightseeing, Skeabost’s restaurant provided mouthwatering fresh fish and decadent desserts in cosy surroundings.

To break up your journey from Inverness, spend a night at sister hotel Toravaig House Hotel, just over the bridge from the mainland. 
It’s the perfect launch pad 
for your island adventures, and in contrast to the imposing charm of Skeabost, Toravaig is a more modest property, but also boasts a lovely crackling fire, a restaurant serving fine food and a homely atmosphere we were sad to leave behind.
