Running through Skeabost (sheltered house), is the River Snizort in which lies St. Columba's Isle (Eilean Chaluim Chille).
Here lies the ancient burial site and foundations of Old Snizort Parish Church, probably late medieval, which served as a cathedral church of the Bishops of the Isles.
There are also ruins of two small Chapels, their dates associated with the life and work of St. Columba who brought Christianity to The North Isles of Scotland.
Visitors may wish to explore this isle which is a short walk from Fernyhalgh. The gravestones range from eleventh century to the 1960's. Most impressive of all is the tombstone of a noble knight in armour
The B&B itself is situated on the shore of Loch Snizort. On occasion otters have been seen swimming up and down the loch, and from time to time seals and leaping salmon have also been sighted.
Just a few minutes walk from the B&B is the Skeabost Country House Hotel - with licensed bar and upmarket dining.
