Toravaig House Hotel

is one of my personal favourite hotels on for a multitude of reasons.  It’s obvious from the moment you set foot on the secluded grounds in the ‘Garden of Skye’ that this is first class lodging, with incredible attention to detail and a high standard of quality. As many of the other properties covered here in our Skye hotels guide, Toravaig House has won its share of awards including Scottish Island Hotel of the Year, Most Excellent Service UK, Tourism Excellence, Hospitality Gold Medal, just to name a few.

The romantic and luxurious accommodation is popular for weddings and receptions.  In fact, if that’s what you’re looking for, I cannot recommend any Isle of Skye hotels above Toravaig House.  You really won’t be disappointed. Part of the charm lies in the fact that each room is uniquely named after an island, and decorated with feature beds iron bed sleights with full canopies. Cozy fireplaces are standard fare, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere to unwind after a day exploring, sailing, or sightseeing. Did I mention sailing?  Ah, yes! Hotel guests even have access to the , a 42 foot yacht recently purchased by the hotel.  Icing on the cake in my opinion, spending a day or two out on the water, seeing Skye from angles unavailable on land. The food is widely renowned as well. Two great chefs prepare your favourite locally produced Scottish produce, fish, seafood and meats. They also do duck, venison, lamb and beef steak, along with halibut, fish, sea bass, scallops and lobster.

Our personal recommendation is the full Scottish breakfast featuring Isle of Lewis black pudding, or try the locally sourced smoked haddock and kippers. For a special twist, try a shot of whisky on your morning porridge, made with honey and cream. If you’re looking for a first-class holiday on the Isle of Skye, look no further!
