The Isle of Skye has built up a solid reputation as a destination for those who appreciate quality food and service. One example is the astounding early success of Edinbane Lodge which is a wonderful restaurant with rooms set in the north of the island. This casual, fine dining restaurant, in an old Hunting Lodge, has already been winning awards for local chef Calum Montogmery and his special twist on serving Scottish Food. This discreet exclusive hideaway will be in your memories long after you have returned home.
The Michelin Guide noted this newcomer to the Isle of Skye. Edinbane Lodge has joined another three places on the island, which have AA three rosette status. Skye is a new destination for “foodies” with so much to enjoy and savour.
The Island of Skye is famous all over the world for its stunning Cuillin Mountains and the fascinating history of its people who emigrated across the globe. This special island has wonderful wildlife which is to be found across the land and in the sea.
If you prefer to stay on dry land, there are many adventures to be had in the mountains. Walks into Sligachan Glen with Susan or John can be combined with a professionally guided walk to a dramatic summit the next day.
The Isle of Skye in the Highlands of Scotland is many different places to different people. For those who wish to explore at a leisurely pace on a private tour of the Isle of Skye, it is a treasure trove of stunning locations and special corners to discover.
For those visitors who enjoy hiking in the Highlands or strolling along a deserted beach, the Isle of Skye will offer many options including the stunning Coral Beach on the north west coast.
Although it is wild and untamed in many places, there are also two fascinating castles to be enjoyed. Dunvegan Castle in the north is still the home of the McLeod family after 800 years. The longest occupation by one family in the Hebrides. The 27th Chief of the Clan was the first to open the Castle to the public in 1933 and it has been a popular stopping point ever since.
In the south of the Isle of Skye, the ruins of Armadale castle tell the story of the Macdonald family. Dating from the 18th century is it much younger than its northern neighbour and the Castle Museum in the Garden grounds tells the story of the island from Viking times. Immerse yourself in the history of the Clan Donald. Scotland's largest and most powerful Clan. Enjoy strolling in the magnificent Gardens and feel the history through the splendid ancient trees, brought to Skye from all over the world in the 18th and 19th century.
