Lovingly restored and stunningly refurbished, this iconic Skye hotel is an idyllic retreat in a jawdropping location on one of the world’s favourite islands.
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, and a stunning location to exchange vows with the love of your life. The views over Loch Snizort are breathtaking and perfect for an evening fireworks show to start your married life with a bang.
The 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 and an ideal venue for intimate wedding ceremonies for up to 26 guests. Local lore claims Al Capone once played billiards in that very room.
With a mix of modern, deluxe rooms that open out into the garden and unique rooms with period features inhouse, Skeabost’s 18 bedrooms can accommodate up to 36 people in luxurious comfort. Exclusive use of the hotel can turn a wedding into an unforgettable weekend house party.
With an array of public rooms such as a cosy lounge, wood panelled dining room and airy conservatory with dance floor, elopement marriages for 2 or traditional Highland Wedding parties of up to 150 people can be celebrated at Skeabost. Head Chef James Dixon and his team create memorable celebratory meals using the best local produce based on the bride and groom’s personal tastes to make each wedding a unique and precious occasion.
