Three Chimneys (and 'The House Over-By') - Restaurant with Rooms

Colbost, Dunvegan (Nr.), Isle of Skye, Highland, IV55 8ZT
Find this, multi-award-winning, restaurant with rooms on Skye's beautiful north-west coast. This white-washed crofter's cottage overlooks Loch Dunvegan, which sports seals and other interesting wildlife. The atmosphere inside, is comfortable, but rustic, with traditional stone and slate plus a few maritime adornments.

Chef Michael Smith has now taken over the kitchen reins with co-owner Shirley Spears, but any change seems to been seamless. Set dinner is a four course affair, with soup (or such-like) coming as a second stage.

Begin, perhaps with 'Crab Tortellini with Hot Pepper Crème Fraiche' or 'Smoked Haddock with peat-smoked Salmon and Eggs Mimosa'.

The style of the mains is set by the likes of 'Bourride of local Halibut, Brill and Cockles with John Dory and Clams'; 'Loin and Kidney of Highland Lamb with Pearl Barley and a Mushroom and Madeira Sauce' or in season 'Venison Fillet with Skirlie Potato Cakes, Baby Neeps, Braised Red Cabbage and a Game Jus'.

Desserts are excellent, perhaps 'Chocolate Pudding with Black Cherries' or 'Iced Whisky and Lemon Parfait with Pink Grapefruit, Clove Tuille and Aniseed Brittle' - but they are particularly proud of their 'Marmalade Pudding with Drambuie Custard'. The more savoury-toothed can indulge in a selection of Scottish Cheeses.

Lunch is lighter affair, with three choices at each stage.

A stay here, in 'The House Over-By', would make a marvellous romantic break.
