Ox and finch

Definite london vibe. The only thing that let it down was the slow service. The food came out quickly enough but our empty plates say on our table for 10 minutes by which time I changed my mind about ordering pudding as at this rate it would have added another 40 minutes to our meal. Even after our plates were cleared it took another 10 mins to pay the bill.

Anyway, the food was good..

Beetroot and goats cheese salad. Tasty but I could make this at home.

This was good, but the fish could have been served by itself it was so good. The salad was tasty but texturally they need not have been served together.

Prawns with Harissa. HI enjoyed this. I thought the prawns would come grilled so not prepared for the chickpea stew side of things.

Very good chips

Tasty rump of beef but as you can see a significant amount was fat.

Lochleven seafood cafe

Great place to stop at before or after Fort William. Very fresh seafood with an Italian influence.

Three Chimneys

Oyster shed, Skye

Definitely worth making the trip from Glendale to Colbost for. Fresh sweet oysters, mussels, scallops. Excellent. All with a great view.

Location:Skye, Carbost

Best brownie in the world

I found this at the Red Roof Cafe, Glendale in Skye. So good I had one every day.

Amazing meal. The service made the meal. There was nothing that was too much effort, from adding additional courses, making substitutions, to providing the name of the crockery, to printing off an individualised menu, the staff were professional but very personable and with a good sense of humour. That, along with the fact that each course was technically good and tasty made for a great meal. First canap├ęs then amuse bouche then 6 courses a pre desert, pudding then cheese then petit four. We were truly stuffed by the time we left.
All for £100, compared to the £100 spent at the three chimneys this was infinitely more pleasurable and better value.
