After visiting Neist Point late to watch the sunset, we were worried we might not get dinner. We arrive just before 9pm and we were happily welcomed in. Nice food, nice atmosphere and great staff.

My husband and I had dinner here last night and it was delicious. We had pre booked therefore no problems with getting a table. I would advise booking before hand as we watched many people being turned away. For starters we had langoustines from the specials menu and langoustine bisque soup, both were faultless. For mains we both had the... More

We waited 45 minutes at the bar as we did not book. The atmosphere is lovely. Both of us vegetarian, and had a few options to choose from. Excellent food and service.

Stopped here for drinks and deserts. Though they were already serving dinner, the waitress agreed to let us stay just for drinks. It's a nice spot, service was good and everything was very tasty.

Nice wee selection of ale, whisky and gin at the bar and even the non alcoholic selection was from one of my favourite wine producers! My starter of smoked meats was marvelous and the pickle was to die for. The Langoustines were delicious with the garlic butter which was nicely mopped up by the half of the lovely roll I'd... More

We booked last minute after arriving in Skye and realising that our Hotel didn't do evening meals and we managed to get a table on Easter Friday without any hassle. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we felt very at home and the Scottish music made it an even nicer atmosphere. The food was delicious, so fresh and... More

You may of heard that 'the three chimneys' is the restaurant that lays claim to being the best on Skye, actually it is not, it is The Old School Restaurant. I have had locals confirm the same. And we were luckily enough to escape the wild early spring sleet weather and warm up around the cosy fire in the bar... More

When we arrived at the restaurant, this was full and we wait for some great minutes drinking a beer in front of the fire place. We can only say good things about the food and the staff. :)
