Leaving Broadford, the road to Elgol is spectacular and 15 miles of scenery, twists and turns. Many visitors will take this trip for the highly recommended boat tours at Elgol. Yet before you descend steeply down to the waterfront, a stunning restaurant awaits on the same road.
The menu includes local shellfish and seafood either as a starter or mains. The homemade bread is wonderful and new varieties are devised by the owner, it seems daily. The roasted celeriac and celery soup with truffle oil set the tone for what was to come. Delightful, packed with flavour and freshness. Our mains included roasted loin of wild venison with rowan berry and red wine sauce, potato dauphinoise = fantastic cooking. The monkfish goujons wrapped in a crisp light ale batter, tremendous and magnificent home made chips. Special mention also to the homemade tartare with pieces of salmon included. These twists and turns deliver so much flavour to rival the road outside and the team vary the menu each day.
The meal finished on a high with both of our puddings including homemade ice cream that tramples anything else labelled ice cream. Salted caramel with a to-die-for brownie or a lemon almond cake with triple lemon ice cream. This is truly wonderful ice cream.
The husband and wife team at Coruisk House are beginning to create something very special that will rank alongside the best Skye has to offer. Great, friendly service and a vibrant, well priced wine menu wraps up a dining experience that will keep us coming back next time we're on Skye. The prices as with Glenview are almost too good to believe. We paid six times what Coruisk charged for a meal compared to Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles in February and Coruisk had more heart, soul and flavour than what the critics suggest is Scotland's best.
