It's a long way to get to the Summer Isles Hotel, but it's worth the trip. Especially the last 15 miles on a single track road with magnificient views on lakes and mountains. I stayed there in August 2006 in foggy weather and this time in august 2012 in a sunny spotless sky and top temperatures up to 24°.
The owners have changed but the spirit and atmosphere has remained. It's so quiet there. The food is still excellent, if not better and I am sure they will get back the Michelin star they deserve that the previous chef had. And it's a nice view too. Dinner is about a two hour affair.
The staff is extremely nice and I've only known one bedroom on my two stays and it's a little bit outside the hotel in one of the cottages which I recommend.
And if the place seems remote, there is plenty to do around whether you hike or not. The Lochinver area all around Quinag is very nice and try to get to the Old Man of Stoer. Very nice walk especially in sunny weather (yes, it can be sunny in Scotland).More
