We stayed at Salty Towers when visiting the Isle ok Skye. Lesley is a lovely host, welcoming and friendly; she was extremely helpful and gave us good advice on what to do and see on Skye. The accommodation was clean, the room was spacious and warm, and the breakfast room was well supplied with everything we needed. I’m looking forward to coming back in the future and I definitely recommend it!

Not only the best named B&B ever, but this gem of a place is run by the most lovely couple you'll encounter in Kyle. I had a weekend up there last week as a last minute trip and Lesley couldn't have been more accommodating. From giving advice of where to eat , what to see and do to booking a table for us at the local pub , Lesley and Ali really went over and above to help me at every turn. The rooms are spacious and spotless and the breakfast room had all you'd ever want or need to set you up for the day. It's a great base to enjoy a beautiful area and you'll certainly not be disappointed with choice of B&B abd hosts. Thanks

I stayed at Salty Towers because I was attending a wedding at Dornie Hall. The location was perfect, only a short walk from the hall and also a great base for exploring the surrounding area. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and had a lovely breakfast area with a great selection. The views were also stunning! But the highlight of my stay was Lesley, who was very friendly and went over and above to make sure I was comfortable and happy, even offering to take photos of me on the day of the wedding and putting drinks and snacks in my room for the morning after. Thank you very much for your kindness Lesley!

Situated in the beautiful area of Skye and Lochalsh, Salty Towers Bed and Breakfast, overlooked by The Five Sisters of Kintail and Glen Shiel, and a 'stones throw' to Loch Duich and Loch Alsh, is the perfect, peaceful, base to explore the surrounding area.  

Kintail National Scenic Area is one of the 40 scenic areas in Scotland, and is considered to encapsulate the scenery of the West Highlands being composed of ridges and peaks that rise steeply from narrow glens and the sea.

A popular hillwalking expedition area, the Five Sisters comprise of 5 distinct summits - Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe, Sgurr na Carnach, Sgurr Fhuaran which are the 3 Munros, and Sgurr nan Saighead & Sgurr na Moraich.

The Ridge continues unbroken to the east where it takes in another further 3 Munros - Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg, Saileag & Aonach Meadhoin.

Beinn Fhada (Ben Attow) is the other mountain in the area.

Situated 10 - 15 mins walk to the famous Eilean Donan Castle which can be seen from the driveway, and only 15 minutes drive to the Skye Bridge, and The Jurassic Island of Skye.  

There you can experience The Cuillins Mountain Range, The Old Man of Storr, The Quirang, The Fairy Pools and Fairy Glen,  Dunvegan Castle, Armadale Castle, Coral Bay, Talisker Bay and the Talisker Distillery, Niest Point Lighthouse, and also go looking for dinosaur footprints at Staffin Bay.

The nearby village of Dornie, 10 - 15 walk (same route as Castle), is host to The Dornie Hotel and Pub, which offers a new high end Seafood Restaurant menu, as well as a more informal bar menu. Please look at their web site for menu, prices and to book. Booking is essential at this time. 

The excellent Clachan Bar is also open offering evening meals on a 'walk-in' basis, apart from Sunday nights when it is closed, and Tuesday nights, when instead there is a local music night!

We are situated next door to Manuelas Organic Bakery and Jo,s Pizzeria, and the Award Winning Fairytale Gin Distillery - reopen for Easter.

We are also within striking distance to the picturesque village of Plockton with its famous palm trees and the home of the famous Gaelic Poet, Sorley MacLean.  

Nearby is the village of Glen Elg, close to the secret home for many years, of the author Gavin Maxwell and his otters.  Famous for many books and university papers, including The Ring Of Bright Water. There is a museum just over the Skye Bridge, in Kyleakin in his memory.  Glen Elg area is also home to Iron Age Pictish Brochs, beautifully preserved by Historic Scotland, one of which is the best preserved in the UK.  This village is also host to something truly remarkable..... the last surviving Turntable Ferry in the world, where it is still possible to 'sail over the sea to Skye'! A short crossing, but stepping back in time, will see you follow a part of the old 'drovers' routes... this crossing being a perilous part of the journey taking cattle from the Islands to the markets down south! 

Low level waterfall walks, shoreline walks, as well as high level harder climbs and long hikes, this area offers something for all, or, just simply just relax in the quietness! 

Not far from the NC500 route, Salty Towers can offer an extension to your trip, giving you the chance to explore this beautiful area as an added bonus.  A trip to Applecross for the day is also possible, if you dare the infamous 'road'!!
