Call our friendly customer service team for more information on 0203 475 3022 to discuss this fantastic deal before it goes.  Lovingly restored and stunningly refurbished, this iconic hotel is an idyllic retreat in a jaw-dropping location on one of the world’s favourite islands. Steeped in history, Skeabost is the third and latest in the small group of boutique hotels owned and run by Anne Gracie whose accolades include Scottish Hotelier of the Year and a Gold Laurel as two of Scotland’s ‘most visionary entrepreneur.’ It is the only hotel on Skye with its golf course – a nine-hole 18 tee shoreline challenge. The fast flowing River Snizort which runs through the grounds provides excellent salmon and trout fishing. The 18 bedroom Skeabost, acquired by Anne in 2015, is situated in 23 acres of woodland on the edge of a loch, with views out to sea and crofting hamlets. The current building began life as a hunting lodge in 1871, but there has been a home of some sort at Skeabost since Viking times when the name meant The Sheltered House.
