Welcome to Gleniffer House, Portree, Isle of Skye

Magnificent seafront location with a garden overlooking the beach. Here you can enjoy wonderful panoramic views over Portree Bay to the Isle of Raasay, the Cuillins and the surrounding hills. This three storey stone Georgian house is decorated , furnished and equipped to a very high standard with period furniture and original works of art. Great attention has been paid to ensure that you can enjoy your holiday to the maximum in a comfortable home from home.

All rooms enjoy stunning views over the bay and surrounding scenery; from your bed you can watch the yachts and fishing boats sailing in and out of the bay. It is not unusual to see dolphins and seals and a great variety of bird-life. Children can comb the beach for treasures and crabs! The bay and the local pub were two of the film sets for the popular film Made of Honour. You can eat in the seafront garden, relax watching the constantly changing views or set off on one of several walks around the coastline.

Set in a peaceful yet central location, Gleniffer House is just a few minutes walk from the charming, quiet town centre with a large selection of shops (many with handcrafted products), pubs and a variety of excellent restaurants serving local produce and seafood. Sea trips, whether it be to see the wide variety of wildlife (including the sea eagles) or to fish, are available on the doorstep – mountain biking, climbing, horse riding, golf and kayaking are all available. The swimming pool and leisure centre/gym are within walking distance.
