We stayed at the Kinloch Lodge while visiting the Isle of Skye and opted for the breakfast and dinner option, and we recommend the same to you. The plan is simple - arrive in the Lounge thirty minutes before your dinner for a drink and conversation. Dress is smart casual. Then, let the staff seat you in a lovely dining... More

I was so disappointed! I expected this to be the best meal we ate on our trip (it was the most expensive by a LONG way!) and it was a nightmare! My husband is veggie and I am allergic to molluscs. This was made clear when I booked, when I sent a confirmation email and when we got there we... More

Our family group arrived for lunch and were immediately met and escorted to pre-lunch drinks and nibbles while we took time to chose from the menu. A relaxing start before being shown to our table and presented with wonderful courses of food. Simply stunning in both looks and taste. Helpful staff are on hand, but not obtrusive. Having been fortunate... More

What an experience you get when you dine at the Kinloch Lodge! We were suggested to head there for dinner by a relative and we are so, SO happy we listened. The food, the presentation and the service were superb! It was indeed pricey, but if you want to treat yourself, it's definitely the place to do it. Highly recommended.

Very good food from the Chef, his signature scallops come in different guises and taste outstanding. The locally produced lamb and beef are excellent as are the seabass and hake 94%

We enjoyed a lovely dinner here celebrating my husband's birthday. The food was delicious, showcasing local ingredients and beautifully presented, served in a relaxed setting. The Isle of Skye is spoiled for choice for great food and Kinloch Lodge well deserves its michelin star.

Wonderful setting, Michelin-starred restaurant, somewhat more formal dining, but great and original food, superb wine list (many options by the glass), a recommended lunch stop after the ferry from Mallaig and before exploring Skye (or dinner, the way around).

We had been to Kinloch Lodge several times in the past and were looking forward to the treat of a return visit, but couldn't believe how the quality of the experience and the cuisine, in particular, had deteriorated. We were very aware of the absence of Lord and Lady Macdonald, now retired, whose presence and interaction with guests had previously... More

Very unusual and imaginative twists to traditional Scottish fare. Taster after taster is offered - the food is beautifully presented and the flavours are delicate and satisfying.

Out in the middle of nowhere on the Isle of Skye was a lovely restaurant recommended by our guide/driver. To our surprise is a Michelin 1 star restaurant. The 4 course lunch was mouth watering. Take the drive to it you will not be disappointed.

Thank Goldhirsh
