To Cairn View Bed and Breakfast.
Cathy and Chris invite you to stay with us for Bed and Breakfast at our our lovely newly built bungalow located in the crofting township of Borreraig in a peaceful North West corner of the beautiful Isle of Skye.
Our visitors will enjoy luxury en-suite accommodation, with a satisfying cooked breakfast or buffet continental breakfast being served in our comfortable dining room with sea view. Free Wi-Fi is provided.
Our location is perfect for exploring the ruined township of Galtrigill, where you can search for the mysterious Manners Stone. The nearby coast is home to a wide variety of seabirds. We are close to Neist Point, the most westerly point on Skye, and Waterstein Head, with its 1000 foot sheer sea cliffs. Inland, hill walkers will find plenty to explore.
History and Culture seekers will want to visit nearby Glendale, famous for the Martyrs who fought to change crofting law. Also, there is a piping museum in Borreraig, and a crofting museum in nearby Colbost. Dunvegan Castle – home to the MacLeod Clan for more than 800 years – is only a 15 minutes drive.
For a dining experience second to none, the world renowned Three Chimneys Restaurant is just 4 miles down the road.

We are a stone’s throw from the site of the MacCrimmons piping school. The school was founded in the year 1500. The MacCrimmons were hereditary pipers to the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod of Dunvegan, and composed many classical pieces of music in their honour. The site of the school is now marked by a cairn on the hill behind Cairn View.
Local walking: Nearby, there is ample opportunity for moorland and clifftop walking. Take a look at the gallery on the right. The pictures are all taken on a walk to Dunvegan Head which lies approximately two miles to the north.
