Skeabost Hotel, Skye
Lovingly restored and stunningly refurbished, this iconic hotel is an idyllic retreat in a jaw-dropping location on one of the world's favourite islands. Steeped in history, Skeabost is the third and latest in the small group of boutique hotels owned and run by Anne Gracie and Ken Gunn. It is the only hotel on Skye with its own golf course - a nine hole, 18 tee shoreline challenge. The fast flowing River Snizort which runs through the grounds provides excellent salmon and trout fishing. The renovation of this 18 bedroom Hotel has artistically blended original features with contemporary furniture and fabrics, including tweeds in eye-catching colours, to create an enchanting ambience which oozes luxury, style and Victorian grandeur.
Evening meals in 'The West Pier' offer a casual dining experience with an a la carte menu offering a range of delicious options to suit all tastes using fresh local produce. This year also sees the introduction of a five course tasting menu, turning every evening into a special occasion. Skeabost has a long history of being the perfect place for afternoon tea. With roaring log fires and delicious home baking, this is the perfect treat. Sunday lunch is another tradition when the weekend is celebrated with a hearty roast dinner.
