Description: We regret that The Three Chimneys is now temporarily closed until further notice as a response to Covid 19. We will be keeping all of our valued guests up to date as the situation develops... The Three Chimneys Restaurant is one of Scotland's most iconic restaurants, set in a stunning location beside the sea in the north west corner of the Isle of Skye. Colbost is situated on the shores of Loch Dunvegan, a wide sea loch that opens into The Minch, the narrow stretch of sea between Skye and the Outer Hebrides. The views are stunning whatever the time of year. The Three Chimneys is famous for specialising in the freshest local produce including wonderful seafood from the immediate coastal waters. Head Chef, Scott Davies and his Brigade of young chefs are passionate about preparing and cooking the finest local ingredients.

A restuarant on our must do list while on Skye. We were along in the Glendale area and Donda from Dunvegan Taxis brought us along and back. We went in to reception and sat down for a pre meal drink and some puffed crisp things and hubby ate the salmon and celeriac puree thing as I couldn't have it as I am vegetarian. We were then taken across the road to be seated at our table. There was also a chefs table in the kitchen. The dinner was either the a la carte dinner menu or the tasting menu with or without paired wines. We went for the paired wines and it was about £147 for me and £157 for hubby a tad expensive compared with other restuarants but worth it for the imaginative wines that accomponied the meal. Hubby had Scortched Dunvegan Langoustine, Dunvegan crab, Douglas fir & apple cured Sconser scallop, Duckfat confit West Ross salmon (his 3rd favourite(, Roasted Sconser Scallop (equal first favourite), Wild rabbit, Orbost Rose Beef ( equal first favourite), Pear tart and Edinbane Blueberries. I had Leek terrine ( nice very leek but the leeks were cold and meant to be which I didn't like), Cauliflower steak, Crispy croft egg ( my standout of the night with the salsify so so good), Globe artichoke, Salt baked celeriac ( no 2 of the night for me), Apple of the earth ( my third best), Beetroot risotto ( I hate beetroot but the golden beetroot and kale were lovely the risotto was sweet but too much for me ,y unusual and I loved the hubby finished it), pear tart and Edinbane blueberries. We couldn't managed anything else passed on the cheese but had a sneaky wee chocolate I had the white chocolate and limoncello hubby had the truffle and the honey chocolate. A fab meal wit fab service and a big thumbs up to the wine selector , they were very unusual and I loved the Gruner, the Cha'ar and the wacky Atavo.Thank you the Three Chimneys.

We were on Skye for a week and had booked the three chimneys well in advance

Recommend that you book as the restaurant isn’t huge and is very popular

We had the three course menu and I have to say that it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Every course was brilliant and full of different flavours and textures

The staff were lovely and very helpful and just the right level of attentive

If you are staying on Skye I recommending going here it is fabulous

The Three Chimneys was hand downs the best meal we had while in Scotland. The execution of each dish was handled with mastery. The plating was eye catching, the flavors wondrous, and the atmosphere cozy. It was truly an exceptional meal that displayed the local produce in the best light. It comes highly recommended.

this is a very popular restaurant so reservations well in advance are required. We had a wonderful meal from the main menu. The tasting menu which we saw others having would have been too much. The service is very polite and attentive. Highly recommended.

I think the real beauty of this place is the quiet execution of the local and seasonal produce that doesn’t scream and shout...but more exudes a deliciously divine and confident knowledge, a steady hand & a subtly of palette. The dishes are 100% sublime, whether you choose from the tasting menu or a la carte. Top favourites this visit were the plump little parcels of haddock ravioli with a salty and rich broth poured decadently from an iron teapot, the Saoy lamb served with aubergine that was freakishly good (and I don’t even eat aubergine!) and the oyster extra starter; one warmed with Scottish whiskey, one plain and one served with a gin granita gently spooned on the top. Delectable doesn’t come close to doing it justice! The dining room is a palette of soft shades of grey, with candles flickering and the Loch views from outside the quaint windows, the whole experience is ridiculously relaxing and almost celestial!
