About Kinloch Lodge

Food is the crowning part of the Kinloch experience. Feeding you well at every opportunity is something we take extremely seriously. We serve a daily changing menu, taking advantage of the freshest seasonal produce available. Claire Macdonald started the kitchens at Kinloch with a mission to make the most of the wonderful local produce on offer, simply cooked and served generously. Her focus on unfussy seasonal cooking was ahead of its time and today remains unchanged. Armed with an ever-growing list of local ingredients, Marcello Tully continues Claire’s food ethos today, bringing to it his own influence and experience in some of the world’s finest kitchens.

We had a wonderful lunch celebrating my friend's retirement. Everything about it was delightful, the food and the service excellent. The drawing room has such a lovely, welcoming, comfortable atmosphere; we could happily have sat there for much longer, had we not had a ferry to get to. We feel we could not fault anything, but if I may make a (very) small suggestion, we would have appreciated toothpicks on the table to use after the main course. Thank you for making it a memorable occasion.

Definitly my favorite place on Skye. I have had the chance to come here many times and year after year, it is always a great pleasure staying or dining in this wonderful property. I put 4 on gastronomy because cuisine can always improve, but never had any problem with the gastronomy at Kinloch .

The restaurant experience was fair. we did feel a little rushed to get into the 'conveyor belt'. The food was good, as was the wine. The service was a little 'stiff and starchy'; the white gloves suggested that the server had eczema! When we left our table, no coffee nor petits fours arrived for us and we felt 'forgotten'. The accommodation part of my review will follow elsewhere, as it will be less complimentary.

I had heard wonderful things about Kinloch Lodge and it certainly did not disappoint! An absolutely perfect 30th birthday lunch- food to die for and a lovely atmosphere with the loveliest of staff. Not remotely pretentious, just wonderful service and exceptional food in a beautiful setting. Incredibly good value too. Definitely the best place we ate on Skye during our week long holiday, and we hope to come back and stay for a few days in the future. Their excellent reputation is well deserved.

We have been visiting Kinloch for a number of years now and always look forward to the experience, welcoming polite staff for whom nothing seems to be too much trouble. An ever changing and evolving menu showcasing the best local produce, cooked and presented beautifully by Marcello and his very talented team, we are never disappointed ! A fantastic experience and well worth the long journey !

We both have food allergies, which makes us a challenge for anyone. Let me just say that Chef Tully adjusted the menu so that we could enjoy his food. It was tasty and creative and made you want more. Anyone lucky enough to visit the Lodge and have any meal prepared for them by the Chef and his team are in for a treat.

What a wonderful experience! My wife and I did the 7 course dinner. We each had our favorites. The combination of flavors, textures, and presentation took us on a superb gastronomic journey. Chef Tully's vision was outstanding. The staff from the drawing room to the dinner table were some of the best we have experienced. We have absolutely nothing to pick at. The drive to Kinloch is well worth it and the setting was elegant.

This was a fabulous stay and we loved both nights that we stayed. Dinner was also fabulous, however upon checking out we saw on our bill that we were charged for water during our stay. We were not told of this and thought it was actually a bit rude as the water came from the well. Also, we were in Room 6 and the ceiling in the bathroom was full of mold, and the paint was peeling off the walls so you might want to check that. Other than that, the hospitality was wonderful and the service was terrific and the location was so serene and quiet and would definitely go back.

Kinloch Lodge is in a magnificent setting on the Lsat Peninsula on the Isle of Skye. The views are provided by nature but Claire Macdonald and her team make superb use of them. The views from our, room and drawing kept drawing the eye. At breakfast in the dining room the same. The staff are exceptionally attentive and friendly with no hint of stuffiness. The food is delicious, whether breakfast or dinner (our programme did not allow us to try lunch but cannot imagine it would not be the same). The food is adventurous, using mainly local produce, without being avant garde. Marcello Tully leads a fantastic kitchen team with great verve and inspiration. The wine list is very good and, given the wines on the list and the nature of the dining offered, mostly reasonably priced. The bar has a log fire, an authentic Highland fell and, by the looks of it, some great whiskies (and an excellent range of Scottish craft gins) The Lodge grounds allow for a pleasant walk in the more formal parts with interesting sculptures to amuse the eye and a delightful walk in more rustic environs along the beach. Our room was maybe a little old fashioned but ample sized, well equipped, with a very comfortable bed and a good sized nicely appointed bathroom. And that view! We are already planning our next trip.

Andy. A wonderful overnight treat. Accommodation beautiful, staff extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming (and we were not referred to as “guys”!) and dinner was outstanding. Minor observation: the TV did not show the channels mentioned in the Guest Directory. In particular I couldn’t watch the football while my wife was in the shower! Catherine. Everything was really really lovely. Only one small thing to say - no small chair or stool to put day clothes for overnight but perhaps, in the suite, we were supposed to use the lounge.

The staff was very pleasant and accomodating. We did not wait long for anything and the courses were explaind to us to the finest details. The 5 course menu was incredible. The chef is very creative. We had to leave in a hurry due to poor planning so we missed the dessert. The staff made sure we leave with something sweet. We also got engaged. An experience on a lifetime!
