We had an excellent dinner here in a casual atmosphere but with well-prepared food. Even in September in mid-week, however, it was vital to reserve a table as with all restaurants we went to on Skye.

Equal to top fish restaurants in Southern Europe. Cullen Skink was brilliant, pan seared salmon was excellent. Good choice on the menu.
