Harden's survey result
“Worth the difficulty of getting to” – Shirley and Eddie Spear’s famous, “out-of-the-way” old crofter’s cottage has achieved a formidable reputation since it opened in 1984 and reports continue to say it fully lives up, with very locally-sourced food that’s “pretty much perfect on every course”. “Next time I’m going to stay!”
“A long way to go, but boy is it worth it”. This “most magical and mystical location” – a “remote” old crofter’s cottage “with a little river running past” and “the most amazing views” – is often completed in reports for “some of the best food I’ve ever eaten”. “The colourful food is beautifully presented and tastes fantastic” and experiences at the Chef’s Table are particularly memorable.
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!”
“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”.
