Andrea & Ian would like to welcome you to
Crossal House Bed and Breakfast on the beautiful Isle of Skye
We have been welcoming guests to our comfortable, traditional family home on the beautiful Isle of Skye for several years now and it is our aim to provide you with a happy, memorable stay with us on this most magical of islands.
Read what our guests have had to say here.
We are centrally located on the Isle of Skye with extensive views of the Cuillin Mountains, just 2 miles from Sligachan, Skye's premier walking and climbing centre and the famous Sligachan Hotel with its fascinating climbing museum.
A 10 minute drive will take you to the scenic Glen Brittle, with its Fairy Pools, waterfalls, forest walks and a stunning beach all under the shadow of the Black Cuillin mountains. Here is the starting point for the more adventurous climbers but from the car park you will find a lovely walk along the coastal path to the headland. Keep a lookout though as you may be lucky enough to spot a Golden Eagle or even a White Tailed Sea Eagle both of which inhabit the area.
The local area really is a paradise for Bird Watchers, Photographers, Artists and Climbers. We have the most stunning sunrise, sunsets and moonrise plus stargazing all from our front door.
The clarity of the air means there is much to observe in the night sky and we often see shooting stars.
If you plan to venture into the Cuillin Mountains, be it walking, scrambling or climbing,
we recommend the use of a local guide to make your day more enjoyable.
Recommended mountain guides are:
Tony Hanly - www.climbskye.co.uk
Matt Barratt - www.skyeadventure.co.uk

Talisker Distillery, Dunvegan Castle, and the island's capital, Portree are all within 15 minutes drive.
Packed lunches can be provided and, if you get caught in the rain, drying facilities are available.
We have an extensive collection of O/S maps, books and guides which you are welcome to use during your stay. Also, we can highly recommend Walk Highlands for a range of excellent walks - www.walkhighlands.co.uk
