Steeped in history, Skeabost is the third and latest in the small group of boutique hotels owned and run by Anne Gracie and Ken Gunn whose accolades include Scottish Hoteliers of the Year and a Gold Laurel as two of Scotland’s ‘most visionary entrepreneurs.’
It is the only hotel on Skye with its own 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 and Ken 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. On an island in the river are the ruins of two small chapels associated with St Columba, the first Christian missionary to Scotland. Skeabost has its own chapel, now a stunning private dining room.
