There is nowhere in the Highlands and Islands quite like The Three Chimneys and The House Over-By. One of Scotland's most iconic restaurants with rooms, it is set in a stunning location beside the sea in north west Isle of Skye.
The Three Chimneys and The House Over-By provided the very first 5-Star accommodation on the Isle of Skye when the new bedrooms were built in 1999. Since then, the long-established reputation of this popular Scottish Restaurant with Rooms has spread far and wide around the globe. Many awards and accolades have been bestowed upon the business over the past 31 years, all under the same ownership of Eddie and Shirley Spear.
The six beautiful bedroom suites in The House Over-By were completely refurbished in 2014, together with the comfortable lounge and breakfast dining room. Breakfast is served overlooking Loch Dunvegan, from where guests can sometimes watch the local fishing boats setting out to sea to catch the langoustines, lobsters and crab served for dinner in the evening. For breakfast, fresh home baking and pastries, fruit salad, homemade granola, yogurt, honey, fruit juices, and a menu of hot dishes are all served to order. This light, spacious room can be used by guests throughout the day and WiFi is free throughout the building.
Each junior bedroom suite has a seaview, with direct access to the garden through patio doors to the pathway that follows the stream down the garden to the shore. The views to the north west reveal the islands of the Outer Hebrides on the horizon. Five of the rooms are designed on a split-level with three steps up to the bedroom area with its comfortable kingsize bed. There is a large walk-in wardrobe and many holiday essentials are provided, including bathrobes and slippers, an iron and ironing board, a high quality selection of toiletries, hairdryer, make-up mirror and well-lit dressing table. The en suite bathrooms have a large, double-end bathtub and a power shower above. There are warm bath towels and more toiletries to choose from.
Each room has a multi-channel, flat-screened TV with DVD player. There are ample sockets around the room for personal equipment. The mini-bar has a a good choice of drinks to enjoy, plus a Nespresso coffee machine and a kettle plus a variety of teas, coffees and homemade shortbread.
All the furnishings are of a luxury quality, providing great comfort and relaxation. The colours are soft and muted, reflecting the seaside location and the surrounding landscape. Lights can be dimmed, as you sink into the deep sofa, enjoy some refreshments with a good book, a new film, or simply some music. We always provide a tea tray with home baking in the afternoon when you arrive. We can also organise a bottle of Champagne on ice for your arrival, with a bouquet of flowers if you pre-order in time for delivery.
All of the above facilities are included in the sixth bedroom which can be adapted for wheelchair use as well as becoming a family room. This room is on one level, it has a sofa bed, roll in shower and a cot can be provided too.
There is ample, safe parking immediately outside The House Over-By and it is only a few steps across the courtyard to reach the restaurant for dinner in the evening. At night, we arrange the Lounge area for serving drinks before or after dinner, relaxing by candle-light, next to the warm fire. We have a great whisky selection, plus a Bar list including cocktails.
We pride ourselves on providing top-class customer service throughout your stay with us, together with a very high standard of housekeeping and cleanliness, visitor information, packed lunches and a turndown service whilst you are dinner. In short, we try to make your stay warm, welcoming and worth returning for in the future.
