Nice place near the main road. Very friendly service and excellent breakfast. Double bed was a bit narrow (about 140 cm) comparing to Nordic countries' standard (160 cm), but it seemed to be the same in many acommodations in Scotland :)

Many thanks, it was lovely to meet you! Thanks also for the note about bed sizes. It's useful to know about the the differences in other countries - it sounds like the Nordic standard double is the same as a UK king-size. We have one of each type here (a king-size downstairs and a standard UK double upstairs).

Really enjoyed the breakfast and our room which was facing the road but was SO quiet! We loved the view outside our window of the water. Thank you for the great accommodation!

Tips:

Please make sure you have reservations for dinner on Skye. Even in October it was hard to get in to a few restaurants. Do not miss the freshly baked bread in the morning :)

We had a superb stay at Otter Lodge B & B and thank Martin and Vanessa for being wonderful hosts, providing delicious breakfasts, great advice for walks and travel around the Island. We had a brilliant time, thank you!

Tips:

The Harbour Restaurant in Broadford was lovely. We had a great day doing the Trotternish Loop, walking up The Old Man of Storr, seeing the Kilt Rock, the Quirang and Fairy Glen. We loved the scenic landscape around Elgol on the south coast of Skye and enjoyed the walk to the bay of Camasunary. A highlight of our trip was an amazing meal at the Coruisk House restaurant (booked and prepaid months in advance).

A fantastic B&B with beautiful ocean views and custom breakfast. We are a family of four and rented the two upstairs bedrooms. Everything was very clean and we all had great sleeps.

We had a lovely time at Otter Lodge! Booked two rooms for a family, had separate bathrooms. The hosts were nice and easy to communicate with, and the lounge w a reserved table for each room gave us a nice common area and a way to eat dinner in if restaurants weren’t an option. Breakfast was excellent each day!

Tips:

The Claymore Seafood restaurant is within walking distance and is excellent but getting a table can be difficult. It is not possible to book in advance but there is a waiting area where you can have a drink until a table becomes available. Not cheap, but quality food.The Hebridean next door to the B&B is also a good choice. Skye is very photogenic.

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Otter Lodge B&B, wish we could have stayed longer. The B&B is in a fantastic location, clearly very well cared for; everything was spotless (the cleanest B&B/hotel we have ever stayed in) and the breakfast was fantastic, loads of choice, good portion sizes and really good pancakes (an absolute treat). Martin and Vanessa are fantastic hosts, very welcoming and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to come back for another stay or recommend it to others.

Tips:

We really enjoyed visiting Dunvegan castle and Portree, unfortunately the weather during our trip wasn't very good but we tried to make the most of it and encourage others to do the same. There is so much to see and do, enjoy it!

Vanessa and Martin were very friendly chatty hosts. They were helpful on suggesting things to do. We stayed 2 nights. Breakfast was spot on. Tip....make sure to try Martins home baked bread. The shower was the best I've used anywhere. Staying at their home was a good base for what we wanted to do. They have a Drying Room which is a unique facility if you get wet out on the hills.

Tips:

We by chance got recommended to visit Plockton which is about 12 miles away. This is a picturesque village in an idyllic setting. Definitely worth the visit. If you want to go for walks whether in hills, mountains or otherwise then Martin and Vanessa will steer you to where to go. They are expert climbers. We had food in the Claymore Restaurant, Broadford which served fabulous food. Also there is a great little hub of craft shops in Broadford. Otter Lodge is 25 minutes from Armadale Ferry Terminal. We stumbled upon Mana Roll and Coffee Shop, Broadford and found the owner to be a lovely guy. I wanted something sweet and he gave me a packet of Yum Yums for free as he doesn't sell sweet things. I was only grabbing 2 coffees. I watched the food being served to other passing and regular customers and it was good stuff.

Wonderful stay at a family-owned B&B. Very good advice from Martin for hiking tours; his knowledge is amazing!

Tips:

Hebridean inn close by is okay; reservation upfront is recommended. Claymore is quite crowded, and they don't accept any reservation - so be early or lucky. Broadford Hotel offers food as well, but very small portions, and the prices are comparably high.

I agonized about where to base our trip to Skye and worried that Broadford might not be convenient. To the contrary, it was perfectly located and I would definitely stay here at the Otter Lodge again. It was sparkling clean, spacious rooms and very knowledgeable hosts who gave us wonderful tips for our hiking adventures. Breakfasts were fresh, filling and delicious. There is a access to a shared fridge and microwave if you are self-catering your dinner. There is a drying room available although we didn't use it. You can walk to many things in the village including a CoOp.

Tips:

Loved our meals at the Hebridean Inn and pizza at CafeSia. Ask the hosts for the hiking route to the Fairy Pools for an abundance of waterfalls in the 11 mile round trip hike with gorgeous views of the Cuillins.

Vanessa and Martin couldn’t have been more pleasant and considerate hosts. They ensured our dietary needs were met and that we had everything we needed. The food that they provided at breakfast was perfect and included a wide variety of choice. Additionally, there was good car parking space in front of the accommodation and there wee a number of restaurants and pubs nearby, which allowed us to have our evening meals close to the accommodation.

Tips:

This was our first visit to Skye and we would definitely go back. The scenery was spectacular and we found all the people we met to be friendly and helpful. The opportunities to see wildlife are fantastic on Skye. We saw birds of prey such as golden eagles, sea eagles and cuckoos (which I’d not seen before) as well as seals and otters. We went on a wildlife tour (Skye Wildlife Tours) which I would recommend and we visited Dunvegan Castle (the interior and the gardens were worth the cost).

Vanessa is such a gracious hostess along with her husband. She spent time answering all our qns and provided more. We occupied the family bedrooms upstairs with 2 separate bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The entire upstairs is ours and very private. Vanessa offered the breakfast area for us to have our dinner takeout. All the facilities were super clean and breakfast was super delicious with homemade bread. I highly recommend this B&B if you are in this area!

Tips:

The nearby fish / chips were very tasty withbsuper fast service. Big portion and reasonably priced at £10 with chips. The takeout lunch sandwich place recommended by Vanessa was so good. Contrary to what I have read, the road to the Old Man of Stor isn’t too bad. Yes, there are some potholes but very manageable. You can see the hairy coos next to the Museum of Island life as well as a few sheep.

Vanessa and Martin were both very helpful with suggestions of things to do, maps, and advice on road conditions. It is obvious that Martin knows Skye quite well. Vanessa was very cheery and welcoming at every encounter.

Tips:

Cafe Sia was a lovely surprise. The hike at the Quiraing was spectacular. I swear I stopped every 100 yards to look around in wonder (and take lots of photos) Portree was a charming town to walk around, but I’m glad that I did not stay there. (Too popular. The area of Broadford was much more peaceful.)

Tips:

We enjoyed the Old Man of Storr and the adventurous walk to the Sandy beach most. Book dinner in advance, even if tourist season hadn't started yet, it was hard to find a table for 4 in a restaurant in Portree. Enjoy the landscape and relax!

We loved the Otter Lodge. I loved the sea view, the beds were very comfortable I got a great nights sleep. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The en-suite was lovely, super clean, modern, and with a heated towel rack which was a nice touch. The owners were friendly and welcoming and I was very happy with our experience overall. I would definitely stay again next time I am on Skye.

Tips:

Broadford did not have many restaurants we could find, but it’s a nice little town. There are a few little gift shops and it benefits from a nicely sized co-op and petrol station. We went for a nice walk starting at the car park next to the co-op going along the coast. I would loved to have kept walking to see where it lead but unfortunately we had to turn back but I would definitely recommend it. We went down to the fairy pools the first day and despite rapidly changing weather conditions and heavy rain causing the pools to resemble white water rapids we still very much enjoyed seeing them. On the second day in Skye we went to the fairy glen which was also lovely made a quick stop at Kilt rock before braving the climb up to the Storr. Broad foot and the Otter Lodge were a good location because it was a good middle point between the sights which could be especially helpful if staying a few days. We had a lovely trip on Skye and the Otter Lodge was definitely a part of what made it so lovely.

Vanessa and Martin obviously love what they are doing! We had a wonderful stay! the homemade bread made the breakfast really unique from all the places that we had eaten in Scotland!

Tips:

Even if the location is a little distant from the sites the drive to the two sides of the island from here were doable and easy! We managed to do the attractions on the eastern part of the islands the first day and the western part of the islands the next day! The western part is slower than the eastern part and includes lot of walking so allow for a lot of time! We were able to Sligachan, Neist, Fairy Pools and Eilean Donan in about 8 hours. The fairy pools requires time!

Very welcoming and friendly hosts who are always willing to help you out if you have any problems or questions. The room was comfortable and very clean with a great view out on the sea, the bathroom was modern. The breakfast room is also very comfy and each room has their own table which can be used at any time. There's even a small refrigerator that can be used by everyone. The breakfast was excellent and you can choose different options (toast, cereals, fruits, etc.), including a "classic" warm breakfast with eggs, beans, tomatoes and more.

Tips:

The most comfortable way to get to the Otter Lodge (and to travel the Isle of Skye in general) is by car. The guesthouse has a huge parking space and is situated next to the main road. If you don't have a car (like us): There are busses running between Broadford and Portree, as well as between the Ferry Terminal and Broadford. However, there aren't many connections running per day - especially on weekends - so it's worth checking the connections and booking a taxi in advance if necessary (last minute booking did not work in our case!). The walk to Broadford centre takes about 20 minutes. Restaurants near the Lodge we can recommend: The Hebridean Inn (right next to the Otter Lodge) and The Harbour Restaurant (15 minute walk via Broadford). We highly recommend booking in advance for both of them.

Breakfast was also fantastic with a generous choice of items. Vanessa and Martin were highly accommodating throughout our stay and were perfect hosts. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Skye!

Tips:

Broadwood is an ideal location to stay on Skye. Although not as busy as Portree it has everything for visitors including a fairly large shop and a handful of very nice restaurants/ cafes, most of which are within walking distance. Broadford is only 10 mins or so from the Skye bridge so is easily accessible and is a good location for visiting other parts of the island. For us, this was the perfect location for walking in the cuillins as it incurs a relatively short drive to most hills in comparison to other places on the island.

Otter lodge was just perfect. Vanessa and Martin were such wonderful hosts - not only making our stay really comfortable and cooking the yummiest breakfasts but also being so knowledgeable about how we could make the most of our few days in Skye. We would love to come back and will be recommending otter lodge to friends and family. Thank you Martin and Vanessa.

Tips:

Great walks from Broadford (ask Martin!) We didn't want to do the touristy version of Skye as theres so much beauty everywhere and Martin can help you with good walking routes. Would advise booking restaurants closeby during peak season a few days in advance and if you do go to the claymore Inn try to go early (5-6pm) otherwise it gets very busy. If you want a special treat then I would really recommend the three chimneys (we were celebrating a 30th while we were there and had a brilliant meal). Also we hitch hiked very successfully a few times - much easier in the mornings / during the day rather than early evening but definitely doable.

Walks around the bay as the tide is coming in were wonderful. South Skye Kayaks at Armadale give good views of seals and Stardust Boat trips from Portree were highlights.

We loved our time at Otter Lodge! We ended up thinking the location was far preferable to some of the other Skye locations that were recommended to us like Portree. The room was clean and comfy, the breakfast delicious, and we loved getting to chat with you all in the mornings. We hope to be back soon!

Tips:

The Hebridean Inn was so lovely for dinner and you can’t beat the short walk back! Also, if any guests make it to Talisker distillery there is a great seafood place just up the hill behind it called The Oyster Shed.

Otter Lodge is in a wonderful setting overlooking the bay. The breakfast is delicious. They have a great library of books available to browse through. The hosts were very attentive and happy to advise on all things Skye. I would definitely return if looking for accommodation in the Broadford area.

Tips:

Ate three times at The Hebridean Inn which is next door to Otter Lodge. Food and service were top notch.

It was our first experience with B&B. It must not have been just because of the weather that Skye was beautiful. Thanks for everything. I had tons of curious things about Skye but I couldn't ask because of my short English. hope to see you again at some point :-) Take care!

Tips:

We had a takeout coffee in the cafe <Smoke on the water> in Uig by chance because many cafes close on Sunday. Though the building or inside atmosphere looked like they never had good food(lol), the flat white was absolutely amazing. We must visit again.

Vanessa and Martin were great hosts. They were pleasant without being pushy, made a great breakfast and recommended a Jeep tour which was the best part of our trip to Scotland. The facilities were extremely clean and well serviced. Best bed and breakfast we've stayed in to date.

Tips:

There is a Gasta 'Coffee shop' about 10 minutes away, but it is only open to 1700...the town has other restaurants as well. However, after a large lunch, we walked down to the Co OP grocery store and just got snacks for the evening. Kept the expenses down while resting our legs for the next day.

Otter Lodge owners Martin and Vanessa from the moment we arrived made us feel relaxed and welcome. They both have a wealth of Island knowledge which helped tailor our activities making the most of our trip. Whether you are mountain climbing, hill walking, cycling, scuba diving or sampling local high quality fare they have experienced all of these and can point you in the right direction.

Tips:

Pre-book restaurants and any guided tours, we travelled at the end of the season and although there were less tourists there was less choice due to some restaurants closing for the season and less tours per day.

Tips:

Hebridean Inn pracitcally on doorstop, food wonderful. Recommend booking for a meal as it books up quickly. Lovely drive to Portree and the harbour. Old man of Storr - in fact whole island is spectacular. Sadly couldn't visit a few tourist sights because of closures and covid. Have to go back!

Vanessa and Martin made us feel very welcome from the start to the finish of our stay. Vanessa was very helpful during the early stages even during booking process. The accommodation has beautiful sea views and is ideally located for restaurants and other amenities. The bonus of the drying room was great for drying off shoes etc following water activities. A lovely stay and I would highly recommend them.

Tips:

Hebridean Inn which is on the doorstep is fab. The Harbour Spanish Restaurant was also very good. So many things to see and do. We loved our day trip to Raasay. Be prepared for wether changing quickly but don’t be put off by it. Skye is beautiful in all weathers.
