This is a Michelan rated restaurant, and whilst a little expensive, the food is outstanding. Full marks to the chef! When it comes to the wines, whilst the wine list offers a good range, the prices are loaded, presumably because of the remote location and because you are captive. This is a shame, because the food , staff and environment is outstanding , but you feel that you are being taken advantage of. Ignoring value for money, overall it was a wonderful evening.

The service at Kinloch Lodge is beyond compare. Everyone is made to feel special and when The Right Honourable Isabella comes over to say hello then you really feel like royalty!
The food is out of this world. A taste bud experience.
The views, the staff, the wonderful lodge, everything is done to make the day perfect.
A delightful treat of lunch from my brother on a recent visit to the Highlands.
I certainly hope to return on my next visit.

The last time we were in Skye we tried the Three Chimneys as our special holiday treat. This holiday we decided the Kinloch Lodge was the place to go for lunch. We were absolutely delighted with our experience. The staff are wonderfully courteous and helpful. As requested we arrived 30 minutes ahead of our time slot and we were shown into the lounge which is lovely and comfortable with a stunning view - all the guests talking in hushed tones, marvellous. Once we’d chosen our meals we’re brought a couple of nibbles which were very tasty. 15 minutes later and we’re escorted into the dining room and the event starts. A delicate amuse bouche is brought to our table with layer upon layer of sensational tastes. Then we were brought a soupçon of soup which had glorious flavours some of which we recognise but just can’t think what they are. My wife decided to take the wine flight which is a great idea and proves to be great value and very informative as each wine is presented together with the reason why it’ll be most suitable for the course being eaten. We both chose the seafood starters and main course and they are really, really superb. Every mouthful a sensation. A dessert to share and then a lingering coffee in the lounge completes our glorious lunch. All in all I can’t recommend the Kinloch highly enough. We were there nearly three hours and felt right at home (if only we could replicate the cooking at home). This excellent value for money and not to be missed.

Great food, beautiful location, masterful service. The restaurant and the lodge were the highlight of a week long trip to Scotland. The breakfast porridge was extraordinary. All the dinner meals were excellent, but the seafood stands out, especially the scallops. Packed lunches for hiking were well done too, complete with homemade cookies and cake.
