Skye has enhanced its growing reputation as a “foodie” destination, with a fourth eating place being awarded AA three rosette status.
The award, for Edinbane Lodge, near Dunvegan, means the island now has twice as many establishments at that level as Glasgow, which is home to more than 1,800 restaurants.
Chef proprietor Calum Montgomery spent more than a year restoring the restaurant with rooms before reopening it 18 months ago.
He said: “It’s a great honour to receive this award and to be able to contribute to the incredible food scene on Skye.
“I’m incredibly lucky to have such a loyal, hardworking team.
“We have a golden rule to only use seasonal, sustainable ingredients from Skye. If we can’t source locally we may look towards mainland Scotland. Anything past that boundary won’t make it on to our menus.
“If anything, we try to reconnect with more traditional methods used in Skye from centuries gone past.”
Skye’s other AA three rosette eating places are The Three Chimneys, Kinloch Lodge and Loch Bay Restaurant.
The AA has been awarding rosettes to restaurants since 1956.
