We looked for three years to find our perfect spot on Skye and we found it at No 34 Camuscross, Isleornsay We have two houses: the original croft house that is our home and then a more modern house that we have turned into a luxurious B&B with only two rooms. It is suited to Couples as there are only kingsize beds in the rooms. Guests may use the lounge in the evening with complete privacy as we own the croft in front of both houses. Spectacular view over The Sound of Sleat towards Loch Hourn.

Disponible para huéspedes

Check in is between 4pm and 8pm. Early bag drop off can be organised with prior arrangement and later check-in is also available with prior arrangement.
Check out is by 11am on day of departure.
This is a bed and breakfast so you are not expected to be in the property during the day. You will be welcomed back with fresh home baking everyday from 4pm.
The lounge is for the exclusive use of guests in the evening. We will be there to welcome you back with home baking and to cook breakfast each morning and also to light the wood burning stove on a cold day. Guests are not allowed to use the kitchen in the property


From the Mallaig/Armadale ferry terminal at Armadale – Take the only road the A851 and head North – drive for around 6-7 miles. You will very clearly see the sign post to turn right of Isleornsay. Take this turn off. I have then marked the route on the map below. Our postcode , if you have a satnav is IV43 8QS. My satnav brings me up the road but tells me that I have arrived when I get to the pink house part of my description below so it almost gets me right there!

Here is the written instruction that describes the route marked on the map:
You come down the hill to a T junction – left takes you to the hotel Eilean Iarmain, right is sign posted for Camuscross. Go right and follow the low road for about .8 of a mile. Ignore the rh turn that is sign posted for 14 Camuscross B&B. Keep going until you come to a fork with a small derelict croft on your right. . The left fork takes you along Cruard Bay – but here you will turn right and follow the road up the steep hill, past the pink house and round a sharp bend . Continue along this road until you come to No 34. You will pass No 29 ( That’s what they call the house),you will then come to Eravue and then we are two houses further on. This is a dead end so you cannot miss us if you get to this point and you will recognise the house on your left. It is best to go along to the end, turn in the turning circle and come back to the house.

From the bridge

Cross the Bridge, at the roundabout take the third exit for Broadford, Portree. Follow this road for circa 5 miles. You will come into a 40 mile limit part and you will pass the restaurant “Red Skye” on the LHS. At the end of this long straight stretch the road will bend sharply to the right and at this point there is a turnoff on the left for the A851, sign posted Armadale, Isleornsay 8 miles. Take this turnoff and follow this road for 8 miles. You will pass Kinloch lodge on your left and then just after you have entered the 40mile limit you will pass The Duisdale Hotel on your right . Then you will come to the sign post on the left for Isleornsay. Take this junction and follow the map and directions above.

Atención a los huéspedes

We are available throughout your stay and in advance of your stay to help you get the most from your visit to Skye. We can help book car hire, restaurants, whisky tours at Talisker or just give general advice on walks or driving routes around the island.

Otros aspectos destacables

Thistles on Skye is on the top road of Camuscross and the croft land is fairly steeply sloping. There are steps to access the front door and stairs down to the lounge/ kitchen area. It is therefore not suitable for disabled access. We do have a dog - an English working cocker spaniel and the croft chickens will keep you amused!

We were so lucky to stay and Frances's and David's B&B. Everything was perfect and it's obvious they love what they do. They thought of everything when it came to our accommodations, helped us with our daily plans, cooked a "made to order breakfast" every morning and the view was spectacular. I highly recommend it :)

Thistles is billed as a "luxury" B&B and completely goes above and beyond that billing. Frances and David made me feel very welcome from the start and offered the little extras that made my three-night stay a thoroughly restful and beautiful retreat mid-holiday. The accommodations are new and up to the highest standards (incredibly comfortable bed and linens, decadent showers!), the food is top notch (and as a baker myself, I can completely vouch for the amazing quality of David's breads and sweets), the location is off the beaten path but well worth the adventure. Truly, I have not enjoyed a better stay ANYWHERE, and I have been recommending Thistles on Skye highly to anyone considering a journey there. Thistles will always be one of the best memories of my holiday in Scotland.

I have thought of Thistles on Skye every day since we left and I imagine it will be on my mind for quite a long time to come. Thistles was a truly special place and more than just a comfortable base from which to explore the unbelievable magic of Skye. This was our first Airbnb experience and whatever doubts I may have had dissipated within minutes of our arrival. David and Frances were spectacular hosts; they helped us with our itinerary, answered all of our crazy Scotland questions, and we always fell into enjoyable conversation. The room was impeccable and it's the kind of place where you want to sit quietly with the curtains drawn, watching the weather come and go over The Sound of Sleat. Simply beautiful. As two vegans traveling in a more remote part of the country, we thought we wouldn't dwell too much on whether or not our hosts would be able to accommodate the "breakfast" part of bnb. We are used to bringing our own food when we travel. However, for any vegans looking for a place to stay on Skye (and I feel like I should use the word vegan many times so that you'll find this review), David and Francis prepared three incredible breakfasts for each day of our stay! Seriously, vegan sausage, porridge, tomato/avocado bruschetta ... ! I cannot recommend Thistles highly enough and perhaps, someday, we'll be fortunate to return again.

Skye is a magical place, and Thistles on Skye made it an even more memorable experience. From the minute of our arrival, to the fabulous daily breakfasts, to every nuance of recommendations and pointers for an enjoyable holiday, the hosts were informative, engaging, and enthusiastic. The view from our room - and indeed the entire property was simply breathtaking, and it was a bittersweet moment when we departed. We will return - with friends, and goodies from home for our special hosts!

Frances and David were AMAZING hosts during our trip to Skye! They warmly greeted us, helped us plan our day trips and hire a fabulous local driver, and even sent us off with tea and special treats for our journeys! We absolutely loved the room too - very new and clean with a beautiful view and locally made decor. We only wished we would have stayed with them longer!

Thistles on Skye was amazing. Hosts Frances and David seem to have the perfect amount of 'presence' -- offering help and suggestions without crossing that sometimes-weird B & B line where you never have privacy. Their house is right next door so you don't feel like you are intruding. (Can you tell I'm not normally a b&b person?) At any rate, we loved it all. The finishes and decorating are all top notch and gorgeous. Many amazing touches and thoughtful design, like USB plugins so you don't need converters and master lights switches at each bedside. The local whiskey in our room each night was an unexpected and wonderful surprise. This is a gem that we were lucky enough to book as they were just starting out. Something tells me it won't be so easy next time! Highly recommended!

I cannot speak highly enough of both our hosts and their beautiful B&B! I wish there were more than 5 stars, because they deserve them. Frances & David have thought of EVERYTHING! Every detail is divine! The view from our room was nothing but stunning. We loved their company and the chance to discuss our travel plans and get advice about our trip. Skye is such a breathtaking location and it has stolen our hearts. However, that is much in part to our stay at Thistles on Skye. We also loved that everything in our room, even the decor, was made in Scotland. That added such a nice touch. David's breakfasts were superb and his baking top notch. We feel very fortunate to have found this gem during our vacation and look forward to planning our next stay with them!

Hi Katie, Thank you for such a great review. We really appreciate it and would love to have you both back at Thistles on Skye. The enjoyment we get from meeting such nice people has been an unforeseen bonus of doing this. Maybe see you next year???

Moved to Skye last year and love it. We have the croft house next door to the B&B. David does the B&B whilst I work as an accountant both on Skye and in Edinburgh.
So B&B guests can use the lounge in the evening in complete privacy as we are just next door. We have a great village pub with good food and Gaelic whiskies and we will give you as much or as little help as you like to plan your stay. Breakfast will be served between 8 and 9.30 and you will be welcomed back with fresh baking between 4 and 6 every night.
