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.

When visiting isle of Skye, this restaurant is a must do. It has firstly stunning views and is located in a magnificent building. The welcoming was very nice and open. We were installed in the bar for our aperitif. Small appetizers joined the champagne. The table was set and we were called to our table. The setting is dining room... More

My friends and I we're really looking forward to a visit which we planned 2 weeks ago. Our visit was so unorganized from the seating to the dietary requirements, which I gave the hotel plenty of notice. Can you believe it the gluten free cakes were bought rather than made. It was the worst afternoon tea- I've ever had.

I can't rave enough about the restaurant at Kinloch Lodge. We stayed there for two nights in May and had two dinners and two breakfasts in the restaurant. I wish we'd had time for more. The service was phenomenal, and the food exquisite. Our meals (dinners and breakfasts) were included in our room rate, and I just never believed our... More

Being from Skye, Kinloch is well known to me. As a teenager I worked as a pot washer and waiter at weekends and the MacDonald's have been family friends for years. While you may think this makes me biased, I can assure you that despite my close affiliation to Kinloch, this review is fully deserving of its merits. Canapés in... More

The Kinloch Lodge was recommended for our stay in Skye by a local resident. While the hotel/setting was a perfect start to our 10 days in Scotland, the restaurant far exceeded our expectations. For a small lodge, we were served a 7 course meal of excellent quality, taste and presentation. There was a variety of selections and pre-dinner drinks and... More

One will not really expect a Michelin restaurant in the middle of the moorland, but this is one. And one where you do not feel like you do not belong here. A warm welcome and selected food as you will expect is guaranteed. If you go to Isle of Sky, it is is worth to stop by.

Having heard so many great things about this place and looking at the 5* reviews here, we were a little disappointed with our experience. First off, just to be clear, the food was excellent, although not quite sure it merits a Michelin star. As to the place itself, there are no sign posts to the actual restaurant and there was...
