Kinloch Lodge is the place you stay to eat. Even in a highly scenic locale with wood-burning fireplaces crackling throughout the enchanting property, the main event here is the Michelin-star meals its head chef Marcello Tully creates nightly.
After a long and semi-frightful drive from Edinburgh, we landed safely at Kinloch on the Isle of Skye just before sunset. Let’s just say navigating the narrow Scottish roads isn’t for the faint of heart – or anyone with a serious heart condition.
After our complimentary champagne at check-in, our greeter escorted us to our suite in the adjacent house overlooking the Loch na Dal in Sleat on Isle of Skye.
We decided to stretch our legs with a stroll before dinner. The sky had cleared just enough to reward us with a beautiful sunset. We truly felt we had arrived in Scotland as we sat there on the rocky shore at the edge of Kinloch Hill watching the sky’s vibrant hues intensify with each passing minute.

Here’s a rundown of our favorite restaurants during the trip. Please weigh in on where you love to eat in Paris and feel free to disagree with any of the choices below. Hard to imagine.
Living the good life in Paris can be as simple as lingering in a park with a fresh baguette, assortment of cheeses and inexpensive bottle of côtes du rhône.
If you want to kick it up a notch to experience the good life through the lens of Paris’ rich and famous, three museums paint a vivid image.
Less trafficked and equally, if not more, engaging as the museum biggies, these three give you a much more intimate feel of what it meant to live the high life in Paris centuries ago.
