Greshornish House dates from the mid-18th century and occupies a magical and secluded loch side site, surrounded by 10 acres of gardens and wooded grounds, between Portree and Dunvegan Castle. Now the home of Neil and Rosemary Colquhoun, this warm and friendly historic country house offers licensed luxury bed and breakfast accommodation (minimum two night stay). It is an ideal place from which to enjoy the gentler pace of island life, to walk, visit Skye’s many attractions, or as an exclusive private venue for family gatherings. The spacious drawing room and billiard room with their comfortable sofas, armchairs, books and log fires provide an informal relaxed environment, echoed in the distinctive en-suite bedrooms.

A sense of tranquillity begins to descend the moment you turn off the main road and is complete when you sink into a soft chair in the drawing room. The extreme peace of this hidden away location is really rather special and ensures that Greshornish has a strong attraction for many of us.

From Our Website

This traditional white manor house, once owned by Kenneth MacLeod, sits in a secluded magical loch side setting at the end of a single-track road, surrounded by its gardens and a belt of beautiful trees. The remote and unspoilt Greshornish peninsula, which projects northeast from the base of Waternish, is a superb away-from-it-all location far from the stresses of the wider world, ideal for the enjoyment of a restorative break and yet central enough to enjoy all that the Isle of Skye has to offer.


We offer a freshly-prepared Scottish breakfast menu using locally sourced food, wherever possible. We also have a carefully selected buffet table full of Scottish produce, from cured meats and cheese to homemade muffins and oatcakes. A traditional Scottish afternoon tea is a must after a long journey or busy day exploring the island. You can relax and enjoy afternoon tea in our drawing room beside the fire or our bright conservatory looking out to the surrounding trees. We offer a variety of homemade sandwiches, scones, cakes and biscuits to enjoy with our selection of teas or coffee.
