Isle Ornsay Lighthouse

I've never experienced dinner at Eilean Iarmain, but it's a favourite lunch stop when I'm in the area. The people there are nice, the service is good, the location is stunning, and eating in the restaurant is a treat. Not quite up to the standards of the very best on Skye, but pretty good nonetheless. You can eat less formally in the 'An Praban' bar, a particulary nice spot on a cold winter day when the open fire is blazing. A wee bit expensive for bar food perhaps, but decent enough value when you see the portion sizes!

 The food is prepared with skill, originality and flair - without being pretentious. Do leave room for pudding - there's some really good stuff on that bit of the menu.

Pick a day when the tide is low in the afternoon, bring your wellies, and walk with care across the sand to Isle Ornsay itself. A stroll to the lighthouse is a very pleasant way to walk off at least a bit of that pudding that you've succumbed to...
