This is a small unassuming restaurant with an elegant menu in simple surroundings. It is a little pricey but good value. had the venison which was delicious. Reservations are essential .

My husband and I both had the haggis starter with Drambuie dipping sauce which was delicious. He then had the fish & chips, and I had the polenta, and both were fantastic. Great service and though a little cramped, this place was an excellent meal. Highly recommended (book early as they were turning people away -- much like all restaurants... More

This restaurant has a very welcoming atmosphere, due to the extremely friendly and helpful staff. They are not effusive, just seem as if they were pleased to see you and want you to enjoy yourself. It makes such a difference! The food is delicious. My starter was a scallop with black pudding, very nice; my husband had mushrooms in a... More

Between my parents and I, we had the cullen skink, the langoustine main and sticky toffee pudding (we had fish and chips just before, unfortunately, but had gone here because of the reviews). We were not disappointed. All dishes were very good- the langoustines were very fresh and each dish we have had everywhere ever since has not come up... More

I've little to add to other reviews as we experienced the same friendly welcome and excellent food as many other visitors. My venison was remarkably tender and my wife's lamb so good I didn't get a taste! Served with plenty of simple fresh vegetables, sometimes overlooked in other restaurants. I enjoyed a Scottish cheeseboard to finish and the chef cane... More

food was a little hit-and-miss although i'd highly recommend the scallops! we won't recommend the chicken liver pate and also not the crayfish. staff was also very friendly and down-to-earth.

From the outside this restaurant doesn't look great but believe me it's worth going in. Great food and a warm welcome. Best food we've had since we've been travelling around the Highlands and we've been to some expensive restaurants here.

We loved our visit to Red Skye. We made a reservation by email and the owners greeted us warmly when we arrived. I had alerted them about my dairy allergy and they even baked me special bread. My whole group (5 of us) thought it was our best meal in Scotland. Lamb, venison, mussels: local and fresh. The setting was... More
