Good Hotel Guide Review
‘We needed a break from our busy day-to-day life, and we got it.’ Guide readers had ‘a wonderful stay’ this year at Shirley and Eddie Spear’s Isle of Skye restaurant-with-rooms overlooking Loch Dunvegan. ‘It’s at the back of beyond, which is, of course, part of its charm’; ‘the whole experience is well worth the distance covered’. ‘All is relaxed’ at the well-regarded restaurant, where chef Scott Davies creates Nordic-inspired menus with produce from Skye farmers, fisherfolk, growers and foragers. Characteristic dishes: gin-cured salmon, Dunvegan crab, wasabi and apple sorbet; Soay lamb and ewe, braised cabbage, roasted parsnip purée. ‘The service was excellent; the food and wine were delicious. The sommelier was particularly well informed.’ In The House Over-By, across the courtyard, bedrooms are ‘very civilised’. Each is supplied with bathrobes and slippers, fruit and home-made shortbread; patio doors lead to the garden. Make room for breakfast, where ‘a wide choice’ might include whisky and heather-honey porridge, almond and lemon beignets, smoked haddock omelettes with Isle of Mull Cheddar. (SW, and others)
