5 course tasting menu £70. Canapés lovely, served in lounge overlooking the grounds, the 5 course menu was more than enough (there is a 7 course £80) as I couldn't finish my pudding ! First course was butternut squash curry soup, then sea bas stuffed with lobster mousse, then pork belly with accompaniments then lamb with black pudding crumb or... More

We attended Kinloch lodge for my 22nd birthday meal. We arrived around 6pm and were greeted by Jamie were we headed to the bar for a drink before our main meal. The staff were really pleasant and attentive. We had some canopies while waiting to be seated. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu which was absolutely perfect, each... More

We phoned that afternoon and were fitted in with a 6-6.30pm start. We arrived half an hour early and had a choice of a fine selection of whisky to choose from, sat around the log fire in the bar. The staff are friendly and are happy to hold a conversation. We felt welcomed. The choice of menu is of a... More

I sent most of my food back. If you like the idea of popcorn soup; scallops with peanut butter sauce; farmed salmon with curry sauce; cod and hake or fillet of lamb so tough that it could not be cut, end overpriced wine then this is the place for you.

Kinloch Lodge, while good, is nothing special. The setting is very nice. The food was good, but not so great I would go back next time I'm on the Island. The staff is pointedly amateur, and seemingly unfamiliar with the menu, wine list and serving etiquette. Sadly we left feeling quite underwhelmed.

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
