is located in Portree, overlooking the Portree harbour. With two incredible restaurants, a fine meal is always close at hand. Chandlery Restaurant chef John Kelly was recently given a stunning review in The Guardian, who said that his Shiitake Mushroom and Truffle Soup is “about as close to the elixir of life as anyone is likely to get, and is worth the journey to Skye alone”.
John has also published a wonderful cookbook entitled Flavours of Skye. Check it out if you would like some inside tips on what makes Skye cuisine so special. Start with a Portree Landed Langoustines Bisque before moving on to Hand Dived Sconser Scallops, and finish with a Pave of dark chocolate and Kahlua. If you’re in a hurry, dine at the Bistro Restaurant, have some pate on oatcakes, soup of the day with crusty bread, or some lovely melon and exotic fruits with toasted coconut crisps and citrus sorbet.
As Skye’s first boutique style hotel, the accommodation features wonderfully comfortable, deep beds, adorned with stylish comfortable fabrics and furnishings. Superiour rooms and, of course, luxury suites are available upon request. If it’s a special occasion, optional extras can include champagne and flowers in the room, rose petals, scented candles and even hand made Isle of Skye chocolates. Our favourite is the candlelit dinner for two, served in room, for the ultimate in romance and privacy.
