The Dunollie Hotel has many fans on TripAdvisor:
‘Fantastic value – good food, excellent service and stunning views… This was our second visit to the hotel. The hotel has been refurbished and our room was what you would expect from a standard three star twin, although the bathroom was a bit on the small side. Our room was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Dinner was superb, large portions perfectly cooked… Breakfast was buffet style and included a variety of cereals, yoghurts, cheeses and cold meat, as well as hot breakfast… The hotel was fully booked, but the service in the restaurant was excellent. The staff were friendly, courteous and obliging. The views from the restaurant are simply stunning. There is a relaxing lounge area near to reception where WiFi is available. We enjoyed the accordion entertainment on one of the evenings… We will certainly be back.’
They call Skye the Misty Isle and it is certainly one which is shrouded in myths and legends.
