Welcome to Garalapin House Bed & Breakfast, Woodend,
Portree, Isle of Skye

Garalapin House is a warm and welcoming bed and breakfast, located in the small crofting township of Woodend, near Portree. Garalapin House is surrounded by beautiful rural countryside and is home to Sam and her two young children as well as their many chickens and pet cat, Haggis.

If you are seeking peace and quiet in a beautiful location then Garalapin House is the ideal place for you to rest your legs after a long day exploring our picturesque island. Once you're rested and in need of refreshment, you will not have far to travel as the lively pubs, hotel bars and restaurants of Portree are only 3 miles away. Our nearest neighbours to one side are a mile away in the next township of Peiness. Only fields, stunning views and sheep are between us. On the other side, there are stables and it's not unusual to find one of the horses or ponies up at the fence wanting some attention.

Cooked Breakfast
