After a few years travelling, diving and sailing with my husband, Andi and I settled in Skye in 2008 and entered the bed and breakfast business. We have loved it and have now realised our dream to build a new home by the sea with our ideal B&B rooms. Andi is still on the water, offering boat trips from Uig to see the puffins and whales. We love the outdoors and Skye and are happy to share our local knowledge with you during your stay.
Welcome to Stones
Hello! I am Vicki and will be your host at Stones.
Follow the A87 through Skye to Uig. Uig is 15 miles north of Portree (approximately 20 minutes drive). As you drive down the hill into Uig take the left hand turn signposted to Cuil at the 30mph signs. You will see our sign at the bottom of our driveway.
Coming from the ferry or the north, drive past the Ferry Inn and Rankins Store/Post Office. Then take the right hand turn signposted to Cuil just before the 40mph signs. You will see our sign at the bottom of our driveway.
If you are using SatNav, please check that the route makes sense - we have seen some unusual routes suggested! Driving from the mainland, you can come over the bridge or the ferry (please ensure the ferry is operating and that there is space as it is a long detour back to the bridge). Also check that your Sat Nav is taking you to the correct Uig. (Uig means bay and it is a common word in the Highlands. There is a hamlet called Uig past Dunvegan).
If you are travelling around Scotland by train, then the nearest stations to Skye are either in Mallaig (via Fort William), or the Kyle of Lochalsh (via Inverness). Both journeys offer some spectacular scenery along the way.
The Scottish CityLink coach service runs from several locations throughout Scotland, and will bring you right to Uig.
