Our review

Were you to come to the Isle of Skye by the half-hour ferry that runs from Mallaig to Armadale on Sleat, which is in the island’s southeast - a trip we would most certainly recommend for the magnificent scenery and sense of place - then Toravaig House Hotel is but a short drive from your point of arrival. It sits in green fields by the ruins of 13th century Knock Castle and offers guests a chic and dapper base for an island break.

Toravaig – which means ‘little hill’ in Gaelic, and the language is spoken at the hotel - is an 18-bedroom boutique hotel, smartly presented with displays of greenery and flowers in season contrasting with the white stonework. Inside it is cosy and welcoming; manager Rosemary Finnie is a grand hostess. The heart of the house is the drawing room with roaring open fire, grand piano and flowers: the ideal spot to relax before or after dinner, or for daytime reading.

Rooms are well finished and there is continual investment by owners Ann Gracie and Ken Gunn and this helps to set Toravaig House Hotell apart. Guests enjoy the atmosphere of an unpretentious yet professionally-run hotel with high standards throughout and a cheerful staff. Over the years, the food served has tended to be excellent and that certainly is the standard set by current management. Two AA rosettes are held.

Yet perhaps one thing above all makes this award-winning, romantic little hotel* specially unique and this takes the form of a gorgeous, sleek yacht called Solus a Chuain – read about it here http://www.skyehotel.co.uk/luxury-yacht – which in season offers unforgettable daily sailing trips accompanied by a buffet lunch. Perfect for proposals of marriage or even small weddings. Since Ken is a master mariner and a former Captain of the luxury MV Hebridean Princess, you have the setting and the legalities all sorted out at the same time.

*Toravaig has a nearby sister hotel, Duisdale House Hotel, with which it shares the yacht opportunity.
