With Love, Catriona & Ian

We have always had an affinity for Scotland and have enjoyed many holidays exploring different areas, but found ourselves being drawn back to the Isle of Skye with its rugged landscape and welcoming inhabitants. 

In 2017 we decided to put our dream of moving to Skye into action. We attended a course on how to run a B & B run by Karen Thorne at the Bed and Breakfast Academy which not only advised on the general day to day but also the legal side of the business. We went on a bread making course run by Grains Bakery to perfect the art of bread making so we can provide our guests with home made bread with their breakfasts. Then our employers were given two years notice (we worked in a school) and we started looking for a suitable home.  There was a wide choice of properties available but Millburn had us hooked with its strong presence, welcoming interior and views across to the MacLeods Tables.  Our move was spurred on, when in March 2019, Catriona was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease which increased our desire to have a better quality and pace of life.  Millburn was purchased in November 2019 and after necessary building work and some updating we moved in on 30th December, 2019, just in time to celebrate Hogmanay in Portree.

We look forward to welcoming visitors into our home, for them to feel relaxed within its thick stone walls, to unwind, enjoy a variety of homemade cakes in the afternoon after exploring the local area and all that it has to offer. We will be on hand to suggest places you and your family might like to visit.

Millburn is on the edge of Dunvegan village, and is ideally located to explore what Skye has to offer.  We are a short drive or walk from Dunvegan Castle and gardens, the ancestral home of the Chiefs of clan Macleod for 800 years, half an hour from the Talisker Distillery and we have many fine artisans in this area too. You can take a walk from the front door, no need to take your car, doing a circular walk around the area. The village has a number of places to eat, in walking distance and others just a short drive away.
