[Dunvegan, Isle of Skye] Three Chimneys

Our second time at the Three Chimneys- the first was four years ago.

At lunchtime on a drizzly summer day, the Three Chimneys was surprisingly empty, but did eventually fill up a bit.

Starter: seafood soup for me. Gorgeous. Briny but not fishy, good chunks of fish. Blade and tongue of beef for Himself. Tongue fried and crunchy- he loved it.

Main: The last time, I had their seafood platter, but in general, I am not a huge fan of cold seafood, though this was definitely fresh and well-prepared. This time, I had monkfish and scallops, wrapped in bacon, with cabbie claw. Monkfish pearlescent and perfectly cooked, scallop plump and juicy, and I looooved the horseradish in the cabbie claw. I would take this over the seafood platter any day.

Dessert: Unusually for me, this was a highlight. Cranachan- how have I not known of this before?! Wonderful, wonderful. So simple, but works so perfectly. I could have eaten a vat of this. I'll be looking at making this for our summer barbecues, now that it looks like we're actually having a summer.

We will always make time to stop at The Three Chimneys if/when we are on Skye. It's a beautiful room in a beautiful location, and the staff are excellent, especially when you hear them explaining the same thing over and over again for each table. "Cabbie Claw is..." "Cranachan is..."
