Kitchen

The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped. All appliances are brand new and there are plenty of work surfaces to make cooking a pleasure. There is a gas fired stove with 6 burners, a special wok burner and 4 electric ovens. A large fridge freezer provides plenty of space for fresh food and cold drinks. A powerful microwave can quickly prepare a ready meal if you don’t feel like cooking. There sharp knives, plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses (including some proper whisky glasses to enjoy your dram of choice and champagne flutes for special celebrations.) While cooking breakfast you can enjoy the view of the Cuillins and see if the weather is good enough for an attempt to get to the top of Sgurr nan Gillean.

There is a coffee machine that works with Dolce Gusto pods and a cafetiere if you prefer to use that; double toaster with four slots, so no one needs to wait for hot toast in the morning. Using the built-in dishwasher means you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy (tablets are under the double Belfast sink.)

If you like cooking Skye is a great place for you. We have very good local suppliers to provide you with ingredients for some wonderful meals. Just down the road is the famous Oyster Shed that has been featured in National Geographic, the L.A. Times and the New York Times. Here you can buy fresh oysters, but also all sorts of other seafood like salmon, crabs, langoustines, etc. Don’t worry if you have never bought fresh oysters before: the staff are very friendly and will give advice on how to open oysters.

There are a few very good artisan bakers nearby. The Dunvegan Bakery and Coffee Shop is the oldest bakery on Skye. They have been going for over 140 years, so by now they have perfected their different breads! Another bakery is in Portree: The Isle of Skye Baking Co. They have lovey breads, cakes and pastries. They also cater for vegans and vegetarians. There is also a coffee shop and upstairs is a great gallery where you can see and buy products from Skye artists.
