Harden's survey result
The Macdonald of Macdonalds clan’s famed country house hotel, a former hunting lodge staring out over the Sound of Sleat to Knoydart, received superlative feedback this year for its “comprehensive” wine list, “excellent” staff and tasting menus tapping the Highlands’ bounty. All reporters rate culinary results as “outstanding”.
“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”.
