We booked 2 nights at Kinloch and it was a beautiful location and property. But more impressive than the property was the wonderful staff. They were always attentive and courteous. The dinners were excellent and we loved retiring to one of the sitting rooms for after dinner tea/drinks. The entire property has a great family feel. You could almost forget... More

From the moment you book in and are offered a free glass of bubbly, you know this is going to be a special place. Stunning setting, very friendly staff, excellent service and superb food. We had a room in the south house over looking the loch and whilst this was a lovely room the bathroom does not quite live up... More

I came here with a party of 4 and it was spectacular. The quality of food is excellent while it is noticeable that the food took time to prepare. Each course is better than the previous and the setting is worth the trip alone. I would recommend to anyone.

Spent a night here recently as we thought we would have one night of luxury during on our short holiday in Skye. Like a number of other reviewers we were left a little disappointed by our experience considering what we had paid. On the positive side we thought the location of the lodge was stunning and the views from the... More

Our stay was overnight and midges were out so no strolling for long, but the grounds , beach and surroundings looked inviting for a hike. Our room was very nice, a suite was perfect for a family of 4. One disappointment was our table right outside the kitchen. Service was attentive but with 5-7 courses it was a long dinner.... More

We recently stayed at the lodge for three nights. The location was spectacular, the staff was lovely and our room was very nice, but not what I would call luxurious. It was the little things that were lacking - the grounds were not well maintained and the house was shabby in spots. Our dinner was okay, but not outstanding. If... More

Very nice location at the end of the world. Stunning view, great landscape. If you like modern interior, then its probably not your place. All is about traditional style, a bit too much for our taste. But its good, no doubt. Rooms are old fashioned but ok. Bathrooms could earn some upgrades, they look a bit cheap vs the rest.... More

We feel we must write a review following our great diasappointment at this hotel. We had booked for three nights for a special treat. On arrival we were greeted by very nice bar staff and offered a glass of fizz, which was very welcome. We were then shown to our room, we had been made aware on booking that the... More

We stopped at the Kinloch Lodge on the Island of Skye for lunch. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Scotland. The charming small lodge is situated on the island amidst the beauty of the Island. Claire MacDonald owns the inn and is a fabulous chef. This is a dining experience. We started... More
