Our B&B owner recommended this restaurant. The meal was the best we had on our trip to Scotland in September, 2014. Fish is not my favorite meat, but the fish dish I had at The Old School Restaurant was outstanding!

Food is a bit pricey, but the staff and location are great. We arrived earlier than their opening time, but let us in anyway.

We stayed in the cottage next door and the guest book raved about this place and we were not disappointed, food was lovely and the restaurant is also done to a high standard. Staff very helpful and friendly. The best meal we ate in Skye and will be back next year!
