31st of October, 2018 | Posted in Hotel News Email Article | Print Article

The Three Chimneys, on the Isle of Skye, has been named by the US-based Wall Street Journal as one of five restaurants in the world worth travelling for.

The restaurant with rooms at Colbost, by Dunvegan, was named as one of five dining experiences in the world worth planning a trip around, and the only UK restaurant to be included.

The Wall Street Journal praises Head Chef, Scott Davies for his ‘farm-to table cuisine’, adding, “When nothing but Isle of Muck red-legged partridge will do, The Three Chimneys is your go-to.”

The Three Chimneys was founded more than 30 years ago by Shirley and Eddie Spear and is based within an original Skye croft house.

Other restaurants included in The Wall Street Journal’s top five are The Lost Kitchen in Maine, USA; Brae in Victoria, Australia; Koks Leynavatn in the Faroe Islands, and Sweden’s Fäviken Magasinet.

Shirley Spear, Owner at The Three Chimneys, said, “This is a fantastic accolade, not only for The Three Chimneys, but for Skye as a whole.

“We are truly honoured to receive this recommendation from The Wall Street Journal, which is a testament to the dedication, hard work, professional skill and outstanding creativity of chef Scott Davies and the whole Three Chimneys team.”
