Set on the water’s edge, this hospitable 15-room family-run hotel at the base of pine-clad Kinloch Hill on the Isle of Skye is contained within two appealing whitewashed buildings, one a 1680 hunting lodge. The owners have filled the rooms and public spaces with heirloom antiques, family portraits and keepsakes, and the well-stocked whisky bar and the drawing room with a grand fireplace in the more contemporary South Lodge building are especially lovely. Traditionally furnished rooms, most with views of the sea or mountains, vary in size and character. The restaurant, overseen by Brazilian-Scottish chef Marcello Tully, serves fine seasonally inspired regional cuisine. The exceptionally congenial staff can arrange for spa treatments, shooting and fishing excursions, and cooking courses.
Lowest Rate: Standard Room, $460; Editor’s Choice: Suite, $590 (meal plan available).
