A fantastic location, 15 minutes from the Skye Bridge on the main road right on the loch. The hunting lodge is set well back from the road and traffic noise did not disturb us. Our room was enormous with large round "porthole" windows overlooking the loch and a quiet garden. The bathroom was extremely narrow with a sloping roof which caused a little difficulty for my 6ft Viking husband although for me, struggling to make 5'2", there wasn't a problem. The bath was deep and luxurious. We were made very welcome. When Vince went down to the bar to see if he could buy a bottle of French bubbles he was informed there was only one variety.
"Will this be okay?" It was a Verve Clicquot so there were no complaints!!! Champagne and ice bucket were delivered to our room. The dining room was closed for a private function and we were directed to the bar. Being Saturday night it was crowded, not only with guests but with local families, and there was a great atmosphere. The meal was delicious and the service excellent despite the crowd. Breakfast was in a very elegant room and again the service and the food were excellent. If we are ever fortunate enough to be in the West Highlands again we will definitely stay here.
