Have just departed this wonderful establishment with a heavy heart - diary checking to plan for the next visit! The Bedrooms here are so beautifully appointed and exude such a cosy yet luxurious feeling. Amazing views from here overlooking Loch Dunvegan and there is great excitement when Seals and Otters are spotted. Skye is truly a wonderful island and even... More

Having just returned from a flawless dinner experience and stay I would simply like to share a few points that made our stay memorable, if not one the best in the past years. No, the road access to the premises is not the M1, it does take time to get there, and the road is tricky. Worth every second of... More

Friends told us of this superb restaurant with rooms attached and now I'll pass this along to you. It has been two years since we visited here and I can dream of no where else in the world that I would most like to return to than the experience we had at The Three Chimney House-Over-By. Starting from waking in... More

We travelled from Glasgow especially to celebrate my birthday. The staff and food were truly exceptional, especially the Sommelier. Sadly, we didn't have the taster menu with wine (which we'll definitely have next time, when we book a room at the house over-by) as I was driving, but she noticed us listening intently to her impressive knowledge at another table,...

This is such a special place. Yes it's a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the journey. What a beautifully appointed room, with fantastic views across the bay. All the staff couldn't have been more helpful and offered great suggestions for walks & where to go to explore the local area. We want to go back soon, very... More

Who would expect such a delightful meal in such a remote spot, miles down a single-track lane in the Isle of Skye? But the restaurant is booked well ahead, and the charming ambience fits beautifully with the lovely garden and view over the water. Celebrities fly in by helicopter from the mainland. There have been staffing changes, and once those... More

The three chimneys was everything I expected. The place is located in a remote area and there is not much else there than the inn and the restaurant except for the sheep. We stayed in room 1 and it was very big, had nice decor and views to the water and garden. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions.... More
