We popped in as we were in the area as we had been to visit Syke Weavers and Glendale craft and market fayre which is held every Tuesday 11am-4pm. We had the tasty homemade cheese scone (huge) with soft cheese and beetroot chutney with freshly ground coffee (beans are ground to order). There is a water container that you can... More

We ate at several places on Skye but none even came close to the Red Skye Restaurant. The food was inspired, the service warm and friendly, and we would recommend to everyone! The restaurant alone justifies a trip to skye and we will be back very soon. Can't recommend highly enough!

The food at Red Skye is excellent. My wife and I had dinner there on two different nights and the food was fabulous both times. Being an old schoolhouse, the restaurant is rather plain, but the food and service shine.

Lovely welcome, excellent food, casual atmosphere. We tried Cullen Skink- smoked fish chowder- delicious! Lovely fish main dishes. The menu changes frequently. Very good beer on tap. Liked it so much we ate there twice during our visit to Skye.

We were a bit doubtful from the exterior, especially as some windows were boarded up. (We later found out they had had an attempted break-in the night before.) But once inside it was all good! V warm welcome, interesting menu, good food and a very pleasant evening. My wife had langoustines, and said they were as good as she has... More

We stopped at this restaurant for dinner on the way to Portee, Isle of Skye. There are very few restaurants choices along the way and I think partially why the cost is so high here. We ordered the daily steak special, medium rare. For dessert, we ordered the cheesecake and brownies. The steak itself is overcooked and pretty bland. The... More

I am responding to this review as it has been mentioned on a few occasions now that we are overpricing our food. our meat is supplied from a local butcher, our fish from local fishermen, even our salad is grown on the island and costs £6 per bag. We could buy cheaper alternatives to all the produce but we choose... More

Not far from where we were staying , we had two really excellent meals at this very pleasant converted schoolroom. Excellent beer, stunningly good food and very friendly staff, even on a night when they were short staffed. Booking is essential, but more than well worth it.

Recommended by Alison of the Strathgorm B&B, this restaurant was a 15-min walk away (to allow us to try their craft beer) with stunning views along the way. The menu was varied and imaginative and the service quick and friendly. Reservation needed.
