Summary

Despite its fame and ultra-remote setting, the Spears’s old crofter’s cottage “doesn’t disappoint” thanks to its “fabulous seafood” (“locally sourced blah blah blah. Of course it’s locally sourced in this part of the world. Where else could they get seafood so fresh?”). It has a “perfect” location by Loch Dunvegan, with “the great Isle of Skye to explore”“heaven!”

Summary

“Their take on Cullen Skink is well worth the 400-mile drive!” – Eddie and Shirley Spears’s famous former crofter’s cottage, by Loch Dunvegan, provides some of the UK’s best food, as well as some of its most remote; most notably “seafood straight from the sea”. For a “great and romantic get-away”, it’s “simply the best”.

Summary

Eddie and Shirley Spears’ “secluded” and “very romantic” venture, in a former crofter’s cottage by Loch Dunvegan, offers some “sublime” cuisine – not least “very fresh” seafood; there’s admittedly the occasional critic, but most reporters feel it’s “well worth the (very, very long) trip”.

Summary

“An oasis of pleasure in a faraway place”; from its “magical location” in a former crofter’s cottage by Loch Dunvegan, to its “superb fresh fish and shellfish”, Eddie and Shirley Spear’s remote venture really is “outstanding all round”; if there’s a quibble, it’s that its style can seem “a bit hushed”.
