The Lodge

Eilean a' Chèo, Highland
29/03/2020: The food and service here are exceptional. Head and shoulders above anywhere else on the island, in the Highlands and probably Scotland. No surprise that it's won so many awards in such a short space of time. Thoughtful, creative and innovative use of top class local ingredients. This is not style over substance it is very much substance served with a great deal of style. The best meal of our entire trip and possibly the best for a number of years. You just have to go here.
18/03/2020: Excellent night from start to finish. Lovely building and decor, very friendly approachable staff, good choice of drinks with extra advice if needed. Food beautiful and the service provided spot on. I'm sure it won't be long until these guys get their first star!


Nannys Shop

Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh, Highland, >100£
06/11/2019: Lovely little cafe with great views across the Loch. Great selection of local produce and freshly baked cakes, I would heartily recommend the Apple & Blackcurrant cake drizzled with cream. This cafe seems to be the hub of village life with plenty of locals calling in for coffee, cake and a blether.
17/10/2019: What a great cafe. What FANTASTIC hot smoked salmon chowder. We had the soup sandwich combo...wish I’d had a large bowl of the chowder. Nice friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed.


The Seafood Shack

Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh, Highland
22/02/2020: Amazing, Stunning food. Get there early to be first in queue. Such good fresh produce. We stopped for a break in driving and to get some supplies. Found this little place and fully recommend it.
17/02/2020: Seafood at its best - cooked with love and imagination and eaten in the open air. Search it out and you won't be disapointed.


Loch Bay Seafood Restaurant

Eilean a' Chèo, Highland, 60-100£
08/04/2020: We were fortunate to be staying nearby as the restaurant is in a fairly remote (but beautiful) location. We were lucky to get a cancellation, after adding our names to the wait list a few days in advance. Would highly recommend booking well in advance if you plan to visit! We were pleased to find the restaurant is fairly informal with a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere and we felt thoroughly welcomed by the team when we arrived. The food was outstanding. We'd love to return the next time we visit Skye.
30/03/2020: Whilst it’s out on a limb - you’ll need a car to get there - it’s so worth the visit (but remember Scotland’s strict alcohol laws!)Seafood tasting menu is great and served by knowledgeable staff with an easy welcoming informed manner.A la carte is also focused and satisfying Great wine list though they could perhaps have a “flight” of wines for the tasting menu as it’s a great opportunity to range through some interesting wines.Small and cosy so you’ll need to book- once travel is allowed again.Give Michael and team a lift once restrictions are lifted. Save the drive and stay on Waternish bay - several B&Bs and of course the Stein Inn a short walk away. If you’re lucky the local piper will play for sunset- a life enhancing experience!


The Cabin

Caol and Mallaig, Highland
26/10/2019: Lovely little place to eat whilst stopping in Mallaig on the Jacobite route. We had lentil broth and fish and chips. Absolutely brilliant.
22/10/2019: We ate at The Cabin based on reviews we read. We were very pleased with the food choices, the quality, the service and the price. We walked right by it because the entry is not real visible. But it is on the main street right down from The West Highland Hotel.


Sutor Creek

Black Isle, Highland
21/06/2020: First visit yesterday for fish and chips and a burger. Excellent service and the food cooked to order amazing and delicious, although nearly lost mine when a hole appeared in the box but saved just in time. Well cooked and not greasy like many fish and chips. Can’t wait to return to try the pizza.
29/02/2020: Had a great lunch here- lovely scenic spot with beautiful views. We both had a pizza which were delicious and huge! The service was really great - very friendly place. Wouldnt hesitate to go back and try something else from the menu!


Ferry Inn Hotel

Eilean a' Chèo, Highland
18/03/2020: I booked a table for dinner via email and communication was excellent. The restaurant is small so booking is definitely recommended. We enjoyed the food very much and it was all beautifully cooked and presented. Service was very efficient and friendly. Our favourite meal of the 3 we had on our short visit to Skye. The bar looked like a nice place for a drink but one of us unfortunately had to drive.
31/12/2019: Gordon was a most gracious host for this fantastic and comfortable B&B. To make the place even more fabulous, it has an awesome restaurant. We ate there every night of our stay - the food was out of this world, lamb, venison and local fish.


Cafe Eighty 2

Aird and Loch Ness, Highland
09/06/2020: Travelling through Drumnadrochit returning from a day out. On the recommendation of a friend decided to visit this lovely café. Great place, excellent service from friendly staff. The sandwiches and cakes we had were perfect and obviously very fresh. Can't wait for this place to re-open, will definitely be back.
24/04/2020: A hidden gem in the highlands. If you haven't been please go. I had the most amazing meal and being gluten free I was completely catered for. Vegan, dairy free, gluten free all catered for. Can't wait to go back


Ben Nevis Inn

Fort William and Ardnamurchan, Highland
16/03/2020: Found this little gem after a recommendation from the hostel. The setting was amazing and the geezer who served us was friendly and welcoming . I had the chicken & hagis Rumbledethumps which was probably one of the best meals I’ve ever had !! Amazing . 110% will be returning to the Inn during my summer climbing
15/03/2020: Warm and welcoming in a great setting, with hearty meals in huge portions.Gluten free and vegan offerings, appreciated by our group. The menu appealed to all of us but the portion size meant we couldn’t try the desserts!The weather outside was awful (and we arrived dripping wet on our first visit) but the staff were welcoming despite the puddles we were forming!Saturday night was busy busy busy! Do book!Took a while to get the jug of water we asked for several times and the wine list was limited, offering the cheaper end of the spectrum, and not to our taste (give us a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc option please! Some people react to Chilean wines..). But service otherwise was friendly - think they were just too busy…. Even in February!We ate there twice and all happy with the experience. It’s a nice walk from the lodges and youth hostel at the foot of Ben Nevis, or a cab ride from the centre of Fort William. Definitely our best experience of eating out in the area in February. But make sure you book!


Rocpool Restaurant

Inverness Central, Highland
10/03/2020: Another driech day in the Highlands, open the Rocpool door to warm ambience and welcoming staff. Great menu with choice of individual courses, or two course lunch for £18.95 which trust me for the quality of the food is exceptional. The sourdough bread, delicious. My friend had the sweet corn chowder soup which was to the brim with mussels, prawns & delicately flavoured. The rib eye steak which followed was melt in the mouth. My own choice from the set menu was first class. This is a wee gem of a place. What really made my visit was not just the exceptional food, but the friendliness of the staff. Thank you.
07/03/2020: This restaurant is 100%. The food is delicious, the service is excellent and the ambiance is warm and cosy. Thank you for a lovely evening.


River House Restaurant

Inverness Central, Highland, 30-45£
13/05/2020: What a little gem of a place.We travelled to Inverness for a weekend in Scotland for Jane's birthday.This place was recommended by almost everyone we spoke to, so we thought we should give it a try - I love sea food - anything that comes out of the sea I would eat - oil drums and car tyres may be an exception to that rule!Its a tiny place but quite easy to find - and discover.We had prawns and squid to start - both excellent dishes, I then had mussels for mains and Jane had a fillet steak.The steak was cooked just the way Jane likes hers, my mussels were bloody gorgeous.We enjoyed a great bottle of Albarino, a desert for Jane & a great coffee for me.I wish we had a place like this closer to us.Thank you
07/04/2020: Went to Alfie's for my birthday on 18 March and by 21 March, restaurants were all closing because of the coronavirus. Nevertheless, my wife and I had a great meal (as usual). Alfie's cullin skink is just perfect - creamy, but not too creamy and because last time I had the fish stew as a starter, this time I just HAD to have for my main course. Fantastic. My wife had the trout and was equally pleased. I really do feel for people who are in the hospitality industry and only hope that they can all weather the covid-19 storm.


Lochcarron Bistro

Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh, Highland, 20-30£
15/02/2020: (Traducido por Google) Come aquí cuando podamos, la comida que produce Sean es increíble. De primera calidad, bienvenida, ambiente cálido. Acabo de tener una deliciosa comida de 3 platos de San Valentín. Todo fue excelente. ¡Recomendado! (Original) Eat here when we can, the food that Sean produces is amazing. Top quality, friendly welcome, warm atmosphere. Just had a delicious 3 course valentine's Day meal. Everything was superb. Recommended!
23/11/2019: (Traducido por Google) Recibimos una encantadora bienvenida anoche en el Lochcarron Bistro, y la comida también era deliciosa, muy sabrosa Rosti con ensalada de queso Strathdon Blue y una deliciosa tarta de cebolla rica. ¡Muy recomendable! (Original) We got a lovely welcome last night at the Lochcarron Bistro, and the food was delicious too, very tasty Rosti with Strathdon Blue cheese salad, and a lovely rich onion tart. Highly recommended!


Applecross Inn

Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh, Highland, 30-45£
18/04/2020: Il trovarsi immediatamente a nord del Bealach Na Ba (colle più degno di nota per i suoi ingorghi che per i panorami) lo rende molto, troppo frequentato. Ma il sito è carino ed apprezzato dopo il caotico percorso: una vista sulla costa successiva, quella sull'edificio adibito a ristorante al piano terreno e albergo al piano superiore con una sfilza di abbaini, il viavai continuo di turisti viaggianti con ogni mezzo di locomozione, dalla bicicletta al camper. Il ristorante/bar era affollatissimo ma con un suo charme. Lavagne su lavagne ripiene di menù, qualche nicchia per un briciolo di riservatezza a chi le occupa e per il resto tanti tavoloni con vista sull'esterno. Soprattutto un servizio umano e attento pur nell'indubbio trambusto e non ci siamo sentiti a disagio coi nostri tè fumanti pur seduti tra tavoli cui puntavano avventori ion piedi e ripieni di piatti piuttosto prematuri trovandoci a metà mattinata o giù di lì.Una sosta caotica ma simpatica, dunque.
11/03/2020: During a recent visit to the Applecross Peninsula, we popped into the inn for lunch. The extensive menu was written on a large blackboard - my wife selected the scallops whilst I settled for the crab salad. The scallops were some of the finest we have ever tasted and the crab absolutely delicious. Prices were reasonable. A combination of the superb food and the lovely open fire resulted in a truly memorable lunch - AND my wife wholeheartedly agrees with every word.


Red Roof Cafe Gallery

Eilean a' Chèo, Highland, <20£
28/01/2020: Après des heures de balade sous une pluie battante, quel bonheur de voir arriver le toit rouge ! Attention à ne pas se perdre sur le chemin.Peu de places dans ce tea-room, ce qui en fait un endroit apaisant. La vue sur les cuisines offre le spectacle relaxant d'une dame charmante qui confectionne les gâteaux et les pains.On a pris un plat chaud et 4 (oui, 4) parts de gâteaux. Le plat chaud était très bon. On a pris 2 parts des ÉNORMES gâteaux dans la vitrine à manger sur place, et 2 autres pour la route. Tout était succulent (et végétarien voire vegan, ce qui n'est pas courant dans le coin).La carte des thés est immense.Les 2 dames que nous avons vu (en cuisine et en salle) nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement. Nous avons vraiment apprécié cette petite pause avant de repartir à la conquête d'autres étendues.
25/01/2020: This was a fantastic wee place and typical West Coast hospitality- Very kind and happy staff make you feel very comfortable.


The Wee Puffin

Badenoch and Strathspey, Highland, <20£
17/03/2020: Visited whilst staying in Grantown and was really pleased we chose this place. Lovely staff and great choice on menu. Meals were generous and clearly home cooked and fresh. Thoroughly enjoyed the veggie haggis potato skins and veggie lasagne. Enjoyed a couple of local gins too. Would visit again and highly recommend.
15/03/2020: Excellent food, excellent service, excellent drinks choice esp the Whiskies 🥃 lovely atmosphere in a lovely little restaurant and bar, decent prices as well, would thoroughly reccomend 👍
