Fodor's Expert Review Skeabost House Hotel

Skeabost Bridge, Portree, Highland, IV51 9NP, Scotland

Set at the foot of Loch Snizort, this 19th-century hunting-lodge-turned-luxury hotel offers charming, traditionally furnished rooms; a pleasant lounge with a roaring fire; a cozy little cocktail bar; and a conservatory restaurant that's one of the area's best, with Scottish specialties such as smoked salmon, spiced monkfish, and 28-day-aged prime fillet steak. The hotel also has its own billiard room (in the old chapel), a 9-hole golf course (free for hotel guests), and even a salmon river (guided fishing excursions on request).
