The Three ChimneysColbost, Dunvegan, Isle of Skye, Highlands IV55 8ZTTEL: 01470 511258This was my birthday treat which we enjoyed on our trip to Scotland in October last year. Our friends had told us about the restaurant and that it is apparently one of the top fifty restaurants in the world according to "Restaurant Magazine ".We had heard of it but thought it would be stupidly expensive so had discounted it as a possibility but at lunch time it was actually quite reasonable for the service and food and experience we had.Bear in mind this is a tiny restaurant in an old crofter’s cottage stuck out in the middle of nowhere on Skye. You have to drive a long...Read More

As part of our trip to Scotland we ended up having a couple of nights in Edinburgh. I booked this hotel through the website as it sounded centrally located and looked nice too. I am also a Priority Club member and this hotel is part of that group of hotels so I earned points as well.The hotel is only five minutes walk from Waverley station and a half hour taxi ride from Edinburgh airport – providing the taxi driver knows how to get around the road works!.FINDING THE HOTELAnyone who has been to Edinburgh recently will know that the place is a building site and several roads are being dug up in order to install tram lines. It is total chaos and of course our hotel ‘s road w...Read More

This is part two of the Hotel's review and this concentrates on the bar and restaurant.THE BARThe bar was very different with modern Scandinavian hanging lighting. Seating was low leatherette sort of sixties chic style in mushroom and orange colours. The bar stools with black and square on silver stands. The staff were lovely, friendly and pleasant and efficient too. We looked at tghe menu while we enjoyed our drinks and then ordered our food. They then came and invited us through to the restaurant when our food was ready.THE TURQUOISE THISTLEDINNER:The service was superb and timing perfect. We were invited in when our meal was ready.I ordered the Megri...Read More

The Airds Hotel & RestaurantPort Appin, Argyll PA38 4DF Scotland Tel +44 (0) 1631 730236 We called in for lunch at this hotel on our way from Glasgow to Skye. The hotel was in our ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die’ book and we hoped to time it so that we could have lunch here which is what we did.The drive here up the Western coast of Scotland was beautiful and Port Appin is situated where the mountains come down to the beautiful sea loch, Loch Linnhe. As we drove down towards the loch and closer to where it joined the sea we just kept on exclaiming how beautiful it all was at every turn in the road.Castle Stalker on a mini islet with the mountai...Read More

We chose this small hotel to stay in while in Skye as it looked very welcoming on the website and seemed quite reasonably priced.ARRIVALWe managed to find the hotel which was only five minutes from the bridge and right on Kyleakin harbour front. There were a few parking spaces for hotel residents but there were not many so not sure how the place copes when it is full.We found...Read More
