Host Information

Harbour House forms part of a row of houses known by photographers the world over as one of Skye's most famous scenes. Originally described as 'neatly furnished and well adapted for respectable families', one of the first occupants was Captain John MacKenzie, who sailed the Hebridean seas as well as further afield. Today you'll find that a hint of its maritime past continues in the carefully chosen décor. Harbour House is designed to be cosy and comfortable, with lots of space for friends and families and your own private sitting out space on the water's edge. In spite of its superb location, the house is remarkably quiet, being on the calm, largely traffic-free side of the harbour and come nightfall all you tend to hear is the sound of the water and the yacht masts clinking in the breeze. Downstairs. facing the sea there is a cosy lounge with woodburner and a large kitchen-diner well-equipped for all your catering needs (with utility off). To the rear there is a family room with table football. Upstairs there are two sea-facing bedrooms, one with a kingsize and the other with a superking bed and a third twin bedroom at the rear. There are two bathrooms, one with shower and the second with a bath and over bath shower. Parking is available for 2 cars. Staying in Harbour House is the opportunity to share in a little of Skye's history with all the comforts provided to make your stay enjoyable. Luxurious Arran Aromatic toiletries and top quality hotel linens are included for your enjoyment. A starter pack of logs for the wood burning stove is also provided. You will find the property superbly located not only to walk from the door and visit the shops, cafes and restaurants of Portree but also to explore further afield.
Harbour House benefits from a superb location on the waterfront on Portree's historic harbour. You will find the property superbly located not only to walk from the door and visit the shops, cafes and restaurants of Portree but also to explore further afield. There are also superb walks from the door. You are welcome to bring your dog by arrangement.
