Harden's survey result
“Situated on the shore of Loch na Daal with superb views across the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart” – the Macdonald of Macdonalds (Lord Godfrey, 34th hereditary chief of the clan, and food-writer wife, Claire) – have created an “ideal bolthole” at this well-known culinary destination. There are some reports of food that’s “OK, but not really worth the price”, but most reports of are of “being really well looked-after, with fantastic tasting menus using lots of local produce”.
Taken over by the Macdonald of Macdonalds – Lord Godfrey, 34th hereditary chief of the clan, and his food-writer wife Claire – in 1970, this “beautiful” island bastion is a “real gem” which has long enjoyed acclaim for its “very good” (“but very expensive”) cuisine.
The Macdonald of Macdonalds’s old hunting lodge – converted by Lord Godfrey and his food writer wife, Claire, into a hotel – has won renown for its “first-class” cuisine. There was the odd sceptical report this year – “on a return visit after several years, despite the acquisition of a Michelin star and leap in price, standards had declined” – but on most accounts “it’s a wonderful spot and a great experience to stay and eat”.
There's “no resting on their laurels” for the Macdonald of Macdonalds at this remote and distinctly “grand” old hunting lodge; chef Marcello Tully “continues to impress” and is supported by a “vast” wine list.
