Outstanding views with Michelin star dining in a sumptuously done up country manor with a roaring fire. So worth it. Chef Marcelo Tully excels, the pea soupçon and petit fours, as well as hake and crab mousse are excellent. There may not be a whole lot of nouvelle cuisine ( apart from popcorn icecream, which doesn't convince) but what is... More

Wonderful, isolated loch side location. Delightfully friendly and attentive staff. Exquisite food, beautifully presented in fabulous dining room reeking of the history and achievements of Claire MacDonald's forebears. Not to be missed.

My wife and I stayed at the lodge in August 2012 for two nights during a motorcycle adventure to Skye and back. We had arrived in dusty leathers so perhaps not the usual guests for a high end traditional lodge. We had a fine breakfast each morning and two lovely dinners at the lodge, the food was great, the young... More

Following advisers, I spent a tremendous moment there. Neither fault nor mistakes, all was under control. I enjoyed a lot the 4 courses and the glass of red wine. Amazing place from indoors to outdoors sides. Great view on the Loch Slapin. Absolutely and highly recommended!

Went here with my parents, fiancé and young son to celebrate our engagement. The afternoon tea was absolutely flawless with a fantastic selection of finger sandwiches and cakes, even the tea itself was brilliant and as for the comfort and decor of the venue it was perfect. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient and a glass of champagne on... More

During our entire trip to Scotland we had been looking forward to dining at world-reknown Kinloch Lodge, so we cleaned up and presented ourselves for the experience. The presentation began in a lounge area with drinks and hors d’ouvres and dinner selections, then we were led into the large formal dining room for a very slow-paced dinner. Very, very slow... More
