Three ChimneysThis landmark restaurant is one of the most renowned in Scotland, let alone the Hebrides. Located on the shore of Loch Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, it pairs the very best Scottish food with friendly professionalism and unique surroundings, enabling guests to feel like one with the stunning landscape. In the kitchen, chef Scott Davies—who starred on MasterChef: The Professionals—combines fresh seasonal ingredients and Nordic techniques to create such dishes as Loch Dunvegan scorched langoustine tails with oyster mousse, and Soay lamb with fermented cabbage, haggis, and black garlic ketchup. There’s also a notable wine and drinks list, which the staff is more than willing to help you pair with your meal. If, after dining here, you simply don’t want the night to end, know that there are six beautifully appointed rooms in the House Over-By, right next door to the restaurant.
