Good Hotel Guide Review

In a scattered hamlet on the western shore of Loch Dunvegan, in the far north of Skye, a whitewashed stone crofter’s cottage is the setting for this fine-dining restaurant-with-rooms. In 2019 it was acquired from long-time owners Shirley and Eddie Spear, by Gordon Campbell Gray’s new Wee Hotel Company (see also The Pierhouse, Port Appin), whose motto is ‘Where small is beautiful’. There is nothing small about the views across the loch and over the Minch to the peaks of Harris and North Uist nor, it must be said, the prices, but, then, this is an internationally renowned destination. Chef Scott Davies is committed to the use of island produce from land, sea and Skye, and whatever possible is made in-house. In the dining room, with bare stone walls and jolly artwork, you can dine from a short menu of dishes such as Gigha halibut, wild mushroom, leek, potato terrine; Soay lamb with bramble sauce; red deer, faggot, black cabbage. New arrivals are greeted with tea and cakes and shown to a swish, sea-facing room in the House Over-By, with restful decor, garden access, a king-size bed and a new bathroom with walk-in rain shower.
