Edinbane Lodge is an ancient Skye hostelry which dates from 1543. It was given a wonderful new lease of life in 2018 as the first solo venture by talented local chef Calum Montgomery. The old building has been refurbished to a good standard and is a very comfortable place to spend an evening.
Calum was born on Skye, learnt his trade at the famous One Devonshire Gardens in Glasgow, returned to Skye to become Head Chef at Ullinish, and then took the same role at Kinloch Lodge under Marcello Tully. Now he is producing really great food in Edinbane.
On offer is a fabulous 10 course tasting menu, which can be paired with a well chosen wine flight. The ambiance is very pleasant, the service is really first class - and the whole experience is friendly and relaxed. This is not a place for formality. It is for enjoyment. They call it "Casual fine dining", and that sounds just right to me. Expect to see the food critics' awards rolling in before long.
Edinbane Lodge is a worthy companion to the existing three top-end dining experiences on the island. Find it tucked away right here in the centre of the village.
