Kinloch Lodge Hotel

is a luxurious one of the 4 Star Isle of Skye Hotels, set at the foot of Kinloch Hill.  This Country House Hotel is on the tranquil shoreline of Na Dal in Sleat. Decorated with sporting trophies, fine antiques and warm lovely paintings and prints, Kinloch Lodge Hotel typifies Highland hospitality. This property is the Highland home of Claire and Godfrey MacDonald, and is an excellent choice for accommodation on Skye. Of course there are drawing rooms to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea or nightcap, a homey fire burning in the hearth, and wonderful hosts to make you feel at home. The food is local and seasonal, which is sure to represent the flavours of the Highlands. The rooms feature superking-size beds, outfitted with crisp Egyptian cotton sheets, lambswool blankets, and plump pillows.

All guest-bedrooms have flat-screen television plus dvd players, telephone, hospitality tray with fresh coffee, and homemade shortbread, plus a wide selection of books (both antiquarian and contemporary) from Lord Macdonald’s library.  Attention to details is obvious with the Added touches of fresh fruit, flowers, and candles lit during the turn-down service in the evening. Kinloch Lodge Hotel meals are the epitome of fine dining.

Claire MacDonald, the hotel owner, is renowned for her cookery demonstrations world-wide.  Combine Claire with Roux brothers’ trained chef Marcello Tully, and you have an incredible team!  Meals are based on outstanding produce from Scotland’s rich seasonal larder including local poultry, game and shellfish, hot-smoked salmon from South Uist, and Buccleuch Estate beef.  The cuisine alone is reason enough to stay at Kinloch Lodge, or a trip to the Isle of Skye.
