The Three Chimneys Restaurant, Colbost, Isle of Skye

A crofter's cottage on a Hebridean island is an unlikely location for a world class restaurant but the Three Chimneys at Colbost in the northwest corner of Skye is just that.

It was once a typical croft house, with the village shop attached. In the days when roads were poor and cars few and far between, steamers would moor in Loch Dunvegan and goods would be brought ashore by boat. The AA sign in the photograph now bears triple rosettes and five stars. These are among the many awards and accolades won by Shirley and Eddie Spiers since they opened the restaurant in the early 1980s.
