Welcome to Brae View B&B
Brae View B&B is in the small township (just 6 houses) of Lephin in Glendale. This is a remote location (30 miles from Portree) and is therefore perfect for a tranquil and relaxing break in naturally beautiful surroundings.
Nestled in the centre of the village in this pretty and peaceful glen, we are 4 miles from Neist Point and 7 miles from Dunvegan with it's castle and Clan Macleod history. We are also only 3 miles away from the world famous Three Chimneys Restaurant - a special treat;and Michael Smith's Lochbay restaurant (recently awarded a Michelin star) is just 15 miles away.
Brae View is our home and our aim is to offer a homely, welcoming and comfortable stay for all our guests. We have two luxury double rooms making this a private and peaceful place to return to after a busy day sight-seeing.One of the rooms has an ensuite shower room and the other a luxury ensuite bathroom with shower, both offering toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. Included in the price is WiFi and a flat screen TV with access to Netflix movies. Tea/coffee-making facilities and hairdryer are also provided.
There is a cosy guest lounge too with TV, a good choice of books, magazines and board games. We also have maps and guide books which you are welcome to borrow during your stay.
A full cooked breakfast or a lighter option is usually served at 8.30am each morning but if your plans require an earlier start we will be happy to work with your timings.
There is a lot to see and do on this north-west part of Skye and we are always happy to advise on the best views, hikes and, of course, pubs and restaurants. So to help you plan your holiday and to tempt you further with things to do on Skye please use the More - Links - Attractions tab at the top of this page where you'll find some really useful websites.
We have a wonderful little store in the village and Cafe Lephin (open 10.30am - 4pm) for lunch/afternoon tea, however for an evening meal you will have to drive 7 miles back to Dunvegan to our nearest restaurant, The Old School.
***Please note that this is a strictly no-smoking establishment and that we cannot accommodate children. Unfortunately, we are also unable to take pets owing to the fact we have two Cocker spaniels of our own (which is quite enough!)
Please check availability on the calendar below and we look forward to welcoming you to our home.
"I loved everything. Thank you so much Claire and Dave for welcoming us into your beautiful home. I didn't want to go back to mine after staying in yours ! Perfection from start to finish from the email we received from Claire last year with some pointers for our trip to the time we left . We were looked after so well and the personal touches were so generous, attentive and lovely , from the welcoming cup of coffee when we arrived to wonderful breakfasts freshly made every morning served on a beautiful and spotlessly clean table. With gorgeous crockery to eat off it was just so nice . Claire is a very special lady and her skill I think is how well she looks after people. Back to the start....you won't get lost finding Brae View. . We had detailed instructions sent to us along with Claire's number too in case we needed her help. . We had suggestions from Claire re where to eat and she even booked our table for us which was so thoughtful , as I wouldn't have pre-booked restaurants otherwise. Brae View is very much like Claire, beautiful , elegant and tastefull. Our room was immaculate and so comfortable too with gorgeous smelling toileteries and loads of soft towels in the bathroom. We had blackout blinds so we weren't disturbed by the light and slept really well. The bed and pillows were so comfortable and beautifully laundered. Thoughtfully , there was a night light in the room in case you needed to get up in the night. Again, the small things made the difference and are what sets this B &B apart from the rest. There's no comparison really. Also you can sit in the conservatory and chill and soak up the ambience. Claire had put some bottled water in our room too and the coffee machine was to die for along with Claire's home baked muffins and biscuits which were replenished each day. Claire was the perfect hostess and a font of all knowledge re Skye and suggesting places we would enjoy visiting. (source Booking.com)"
