I've seen some great posts on here with recommendations for places in Edinburgh and was hoping for other recommendations in and around (we'll have a car and will be taking day trips) Loch Ness area and Isle of Skye. We'll be spending 3 nights around Loch Ness and 4 nights in Isle of Skye, followed by 3 nights in Edinburgh. We've already booked reservations at 3 Chimneys in Skye and would love other recommendations.
Some things we love when dining out:
- local (food and people) and fresh
- relaxed atmosphere
- homey look to a place-- like a lodge or cottage-- something with wood, exposed brick, etc
- servers who know a lot about the food
- nothing touristy at all (we live in New York City and enjoy the small, neighborhood and local shops and eateries)
We'd love recommendations for:
- Dinner places
- Lunch places
- Coffee shops/cafes
- Local food stores
- Farmer's Markets
We are so excited to explore Scotland for 10 days!
And of course, if you can recommend interesting things to see and do in and around these areas, all ears (or eyes as the case may be).
Thank you very much!
