The Three Chimney's Restaurant

The ultimate high-end rustic restaurant with rooms on the Isle of Skye

The Three Chimney's Restaurant

Set on Loch Dunvegan's shore, The Three Chimneys and The House Over-By is one of Scotland's icons. Built over 100 years ago as a crofters cottage, neither its builders nor the original occupants can ever have imagined that it would become a world-famous destination - a rustic stay on your Private Tour of Scotland.

With just six bedrooms and a world-class restaurant, its reputation dwarfs the physical size of the property.

The Three Chimneys has a simple philosophy of; get away from the big city, retreat, eat and sleep. Suddenly, being in the middle of nowhere in a warm place and feeling full is heaven. Our customisable Highlands and Islands Tour itinerary features the Isle of Skye; please take a look.

Oasis in the misty hills of Skye

The House Over-By is immediately next to the restaurant with just six beautifully appointed bedrooms. In keeping with the standards of cuisine set by The Three Chimneys restaurant, the same level of care lavished on the bedrooms. Each has a luxurious bed with top quality pillows and duvets. One room has a cot and Z-bed available for babies or toddlers for whom there is no charge.

Room options
Each room has tea and coffee making facilities, an ironing board, hairdryer, and TV together with other thoughtful extras, including toiletries from Temple Spa.

The combination of outstanding food and incredible scenery has led to the Three Chimneys Restaurant described as one of Scotland's most iconic restaurants - it is richly deserved. It has won over 30 significant awards and included in the Restaurant magazine as one of the world's 50 best restaurants.

Head Chef, Scott Davies, ensures that the very best and freshest produce from Skye Land and Sea are combined with traditional Nordic and Haute cuisine to create beautiful, memorable meals.

A heady mix of a long history and alluring scenery together weave a compulsive attraction for The Isle of Skye. Rugged shoreline hundreds of miles extended features mighty sea cliffs and sheltered bays. Two flat-topped mountains known as MacLeod's Tables dominate the Northwest of Skye.

The scenery is no less diverse inland, ranging from the Cullins' ice-sculpted peaks through large boggy peat moor areas to sea lochs and tin lakes. Despite being around 50 miles long, visitors are never more than five or six miles from the sea.

The Neolithic man settled the islands some 4,500 years ago and lived along within the coastal areas. Evidence of their presence exists in the form of stone circles and passage graves. The Vikings arrived around 700 AD, but it wasn't until 1266 that the Scottish crown gained control of the islands.

However, dominating the islands' history is connected with Bonnie Prince Charlie following his defeat at the English army's hands at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. He fled to Skye dressed as the maidservant of Flora MacDonald from Uist. Having made his way to the mainland, he escaped to France. Flora died in 1790 and was buried at Kilmuir, wrapped in a sheet from Bonnies Prince Charlie's bed.
