Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We felt comfortable and well fed,’ report readers, following a stay at Shirley and Eddie Spear’s remote restaurant-with-rooms overlooking Loch Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye. New arrivals are warmly welcomed. ‘We were offered tea and scones, which we enjoyed enormously.’ Tastefully neutral, split-level, wood-floored bedrooms in The House Over-By have an espresso machine, comfy seating, double-ended bath with power shower, patio doors on to the garden. A lounge with scenic views hosts breakfast and drinks, with a telescope for viewing wildlife. ‘We enjoyed the visiting ducks, who were fed before we enjoyed apertifs.’ In the rustic-chic restaurant, chef Scott Davies uses local produce from land and sea to create such dishes as Dunvegan crab, scorched langoustine tails, brown crab ketchup, puffed rice, apple, pickled mussels; Orbost rose beef, heather-smoked potato, charcoal-roasted lettuce, Hebridean Blue, pickled walnut ketchup. Service is ‘excellent throughout’. In the morning there are fresh juices, grilled kipper with seaweed butter, and haggis and field mushroom with the full Scottish. ‘It was a unique experience to watch a porpoise while having breakfast.’ (RO)

Guest comments

'We had a wonderful stay in the Rooms over By which are very civilised. Beautiful hot shower, warm bathroom. Excellent service throughout, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Breakfast offers a wide choice. A telescope is provided for viewing wildlife. The food and wine were delicious. The wine waiter was well-informed. It is expensive but the whole experience well worth the visit and the distance covered. ' - JM - July, 2016
'A fantastic stay. The room was superb and crisply furnished, with a view over the loch, and its own external access. We got an excellent welcome from the staff. Dinner was as good as we had hoped. Breakfast a bit average but the view is a great compensations. It is at the back of beyond, which is part of its charm. ' - Susan Wilmington - July, 2015
