Welcome to Skye

A warm welcome awaits you at our cosy ‘home away from home’, nestled on the harbourside in the idyllic village of Kyleakin, just over the Bridge on the Isle of Skye.

The White Heather is a small, non smoking, family run hotel, with just 9 immaculately presented, ensuite bedrooms, enabling us to provide that personal touch often missing in larger hotels. We are more than happy to cater for both individual holidays and group bookings - up to 22 guests in total. If you want to have the place totally to yourselves, however, we would recommend you make your block booking well in advance. The White Heather combines a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with a high standard of service, designed to make your stay with us a most memorable one!

There are 2 guest lounges for you to make use of throughout the day and evening. Highland life is all about taking life that little bit slower so why not make the most of it - pick a lounge, settle yourself in to a comfy sofa and just relax: enjoy the view for a while, watch the fishing boats and yachts as they come and go in the harbour, the ever changing scenery as the tide goes out or the constantly shifting colours and shadows across Beinn na Caillich. There’s so much to see and yet so little actually happening you can’t help but fall in love with the area - we did!

We have a small guest study with books, magazines, DVDs and an iMac for guest use. There is free wi-fi throughout the hotel, to which the iMac is also connected. We also provide a small guest kitchenette with fridge, microwave, washer/dryer, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, steam iron/ironing board, crockery/cutlery and sink.

In the morning enjoy your very own ‘breakfast with a view.’ We pride ourselves on offering a veritable feast, and when combined with that fantastic view, there really couldn’t be a better way to start your day! Whet your appetite by checking out the menu if you want!

We are happy to welcome well-behaved dogs, although we do request that a few ‘house rules’ are followed, for the comfort of all our guests.

We have free, off-road parking for all our guests.

White Heather Webcam

Check out our live webcam, situated on the top corner of our hotel - looking down onto the yachts and fishing boats in the harbour, across to Bheinn na Caillich and Sgurr na Coinnich, and down Loch Alsh, towards Kintail and Glenelg. If you're lucky you may even spot an otter, but more likely you'll see the local gulls and the heron, when they're fishing in the harbour at low tide. The camera takes still shots very 5 seconds, so while staying with us, you could speak to your friends on your mobile, while waving to them on the webcam!! You can move the camera through 7 fixed positions.
