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

Being so central on the island makes it easy for our guests to access the island's main attractions, from Portree Harbour Boat Trips to Dunvegan Castle or to Talisker Distillery. For those who play golf, the nearby Skeabost Country House Hotel can offer you a 9 hole, 18 tee golf course, and for those who enjoy fishing, the nearby River Snizort is a favoured and popular river for wild sea trout and salmon fishing. A famiy friendly bed and breakfast with many facilities available to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one, for the parent, and children. Children are welcome to explore our garden, feed the hens with any scraps and play on our trampoline, climbing frame and treehouse*. The house is a non-smoking area but smoking is allowed in the garden.

We have given every consideration to the safety of our play area. Please note that it is our private play area that we are happy for you to use, however, we cannot be held responsible or liable for accidents which occur when children are playing on the equipment. We recommend children are supervised during play.
