Foodies have been making a pilgrimage to this legendary restaurant with rooms, founded by Scottish food heroes, Shirley and Eddie Spear, for over three decades.

In 2019 it started a new chapter when it was bought by famous Scottish hotelier, Gordon Campbell Gray who added it to his mini chain, The Wee Hotel Company.

Not that much has changed in the old whitewashed crofter’s cottage overlooking Loch Dunvegan – although you can now eat a la carte; the eight-course tasting menu is still served at the Kitchen Table.

And afterwards, you can sleep it all off in one of the six charming contemporary rooms across the courtyard in the House-Over-By.

Surrounding area

The Three Chimneys is on Skye’s remote northwest corner, part of the scattered crofting community of Colbost. The route here threads across open moorland, the narrow B road snaking through a sheep-pricked landscape. The rural lane in front of the restaurant separates it from the loch shore.

There’s a telescope for stargazing or spotting seals and dolphins in Loch Dunvegan in the breakfast room of the House-over-By.
