What a treat! The whole experience was fabulous, thank you for looking after us. Our 12-year old boys had never experienced a dining experience at that level; they were well & truly wowed - as were Mum & Dad..

I took a friend for afternoon tea and we absolutely loved it. The service was great, the coffee flowed and the food delicious. I would have liked to see more savoury on the afternoon tea though as we were on a sugar high when we left ... :-)

Lovely food in a warm and intimate setting. They were able to move our booking forward by 30 minutes to account for us deciding on the tasting menu and having to drive for a while after the meal. As we had been living in a van for a week a shirt iron hadn't presented itself to us and when compared to another couple who looked to have come straight from their wedding ceremony we probably looked a little scruffy. As such we were quite understandably moved to a less prominent table, but feel like it didn't need to be mentioned that we had been moved. Other than that, the variety of friendly antipodean staff served us up a lovely meal, and I would certainly recommend Kinloch to any friends who find themselves on Skye.

Service was first rate, charming and efficient. Food on the 7 course taster menu was delicious red pepper soup divine, langoustine sauce fabulous. We didn’t eat on our second night, as we’d met friends for lunch.. but would have if we’d been able to opt for a 2-3 course dinner... overall, amazing thank you!

Fantastic welcome, we were really looked after. The setting is magnificent, the lounges comfortable if it is raining. The food was superb, but the dinner formula, pancotta, soupçon fish and meat is reliable, yet it is hard to feel that the chef is testing or developing his skills. Superb if pricey wines.

The crab terrine the pealed prawn had several shards of shell. The lamb main was over cooked and was average tasting lamb. The tea served with breakfast was very weak.

We arrived after just getting married, we received a warm welcome. After a long day we needed to dry off and get warm. Everyone was so helpful. The beautiful fire in the drawing room and comfortable settee helped us relax before dinner.

What a lovely meal to celebrate my partner's birthday. The only place where we know that we are going to get it right. Food is consistently outstanding, the service smooth and the experience relaxing. A real treat for a busy pair.

We had such an amazing lunch at Kinloch Lodge. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel so welcome. The staff were so attentive and really wanted us to have a great experience which we did. The food was incredible. Next time we come we will stay. Thank you for such a lovely day.

I think our stay at Kinlock Lodge was pretty much perfect. No stress, amazing service, flawless house, grounds, just wonderful. I'd get bar staff to try to make whiskey sours with less ice and fresher maraschino cherries. Honestly though, that's all I'd improve on because everything is fantastic and gorgeous, we are definitely coming back - I wanted to keep this place a secret but, they more than deserve a 5 star review made public on here, thank you so much for being great!

Once again we had a brilliant experience at Kinloch Lodge. Visited for a birthday treat, again not disappointed. The menu had some new exciting flavours. Aberdeen Angus beef on a bed of Strathdon blue cheese and celeriac was heaven on a plate. However, the build up to this was the amuse bouche and scallops with an oriental sauce which led up to the main. Each and every course was well presented and cooked with finesse. Great service from all the staff helped with the pleasure of the whole evening. Friendly and efficient yet relaxed, creating an very pleasant ambience. Looking forward to next birthday treat!

The building is stunning and the rooms are decorated beautifully. The atmosphere is very welcoming and you will genuinely feel "at home". Spotlessly clean and wonderfully appointed bathrooms. The staff are friendly, accommodating and attentive and yet still give guests their space to just enjoy their time there - a perfect balance. Exquisite scones and cakes for afternoon tea and a great selection of accompanying drinks. A very generous portion per person but it is possible to take home what you can't eat at the time! I personally cannot wait to return to Kinloch Lodge and would highly recommend a visit here, even if it's "just" for afternoon tea. Quite an experience!
