The Three Chim­neys, Skye

Scottish Field - - LUXURY BREAKS -

Re­viewed by Torty Cocks & Kurt Lar­son from Lochcar­ron

One word to de­scribe The Three Chim­neys: SEN­SA­TIONAL. On a crisp Jan­uary af­ter­noon fol­low­ing a four hour walk on Skye, we ar­rived at The House Over-By in time for a cup of Earl Grey tea with minia­ture home baked del­i­ca­cies in­clud­ing tiny scones with crème fraîche and home­made jam.

As the sun set over Loch Dun­ve­gan we sat in our Scandi-style lux­u­ri­ous room with beau­ti­ful flow­ers, Bose speak­ers, Le Spa balms and crisp cot­ton linen. The bath­room was warm, spa­cious and im­mac­u­late.

Din­ner was an ex­pe­ri­ence. We were es­corted to the restau­rant which was a lovely touch. We sat in a nook, look­ing over the at­mo­spheric din­ing room and were treated to the eight course tast­ing menu – a sump­tu­ous ex­pe­ri­ence. Dish upon dish of ex­quis­ite, beau­ti­fully pre­sented food from Loch Har­port lan­goustines and Dun­ve­gan oys­ters to goose with mar­malade and co­rian­der seeds cre­ated by Scott Davies, a truly tal­ented chef. To ac­com­pany this we took the wine flight which was an equally pol­ished af­fair. A per­fect amount of food and ex­quis­ite ser­vice from Petrie, Char­lotte, Sylvia and the team.

The Three Chim­neys is in ex­tremely good shape and cer­tainly lives up to its rep­u­ta­tion. Af­ter a very good night’s sleep we had a de­li­cious break­fast. Well done Ed­die and Shirley and The Three Chim­neys. Prices from £380 per room per night DB&B
