Isle of Skye – Old Man Storr + Cullin Hills Hotel – Scotland
Isle of Skye – Skye, or the Isle of Skye is the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland.
Cullin Hills Hotel – Recommended in the Michelin Guide + Hotel of the year, and No. 1 Hotel in Portree
Location: Portree, Isle of Skye, IV51 9QU (Note that in Scotland you search addressee by their postal code’s. This can be very confusing at first when trying to set GPS.)
Price: 160 GBP / Night 272.42 CAD
Food: 6/10 The food was fine but nothing that blew our minds. Considering they had a Michelin rating we were surprised at the quality. The started were far superior to the mains. I would suggest venturing out into Town for your dinner.
Communication: 10/10 Everyone was amazing and very helpful.
Room: 10/10 The rooms are huge and have Juliette baloneys that you can open, they do not restrict them with bars. In the mornings the first thing I would do is turn on the coffee machine, open up the large windows and let the fresh sea air and natural light wake me up. The bathrooms are extremely large and the showers are steam showers with a bench. Perfect way to warm up after a day of hiking in the mountains.
Overall Resort Decor/ Scenery: Situated on 15 Acres overlooking Portree Bay towards the majestic Cullin Mountain Range. From walking around the town it was apparent that our hotel had the nicest views compared to the ones in town. Town is only a 5 minute walk. I recommend staying outside of the town square as it is more relaxing and quiet. Many of the hotels online appeared to be on the water however they are not, they are set back behind the road, making the view not as desirable.
Experiences Offered: Hiking in Skye is endless! Get ready for some of the best hiking in the world. Skye is situated in a majestic mountain range that will think you are in another world. Of all the places we saw in Europe, Skye is the one place I am most excited to go back to. Next time I will go for 2 or 3 weeks to relax and just hang in the mountains. There is a special energy to Skye and I knew instantly it was a place I would be back to.
Disappointments: None! We loved our time in Skye.
