Head Chef Scott Davies joined The Three Chimneys in June 2015 and is now happily settled into this once in a life-time opportunity. He is delighted by the energy, enthusiasm and commitment from his kitchen brigade and new LUNCH, DINNER and TASTING MENUS are constantly evolving as the island’s seasons progress. The food will continue to develop, but the ethos will remain the same: the absolute best of seasonal and local produce from Skye, Land and Sea, creatively enhanced with the finest techniques of modern and traditional Scottish cooking.
In 2013, Chef Scott competed in the BBC’s Masterchef: the Professionals. He was runner-up but the experience transformed his confidence and forced him to define the style of food he wanted to create. He is forging a brilliant team here on the island and giving many young chefs the opportunity to learn their trade in every section of the kitchen.
Scott has taken The Three Chimneys to new heights of excellence since he became Head Chef. Winning the current Editor’s Choice Award in the 2018 Good Food Guide, as Best UK Restaurant, is a wonderful accolade. Never before has the Restaurant received such a high level of praise on TripAdvisor, which listed as #5th in the UK as a fine dining restaurant and #20th in Europe for 2017. This is quite an achievement, based upon the quality of readers’ reviews. Scott recently joined the SlowFood Chef’s Alliance and supports the promotion of Scotland’s superb fresh ingredients of all kinds, in conjunction with Scotland Food and Drink. He is an ambassador for the reinstatement of a local abattoir in Skye.
“I am delighted to be taking part in the Skye Food and Drink Festival. Skye produces some of the best fresh food in Scotland and we have not highlighted this as a community in any major way for many years. the festival gives us an even greater excuse to celebrate Skye’s natural larder. I hope you will buy a ticket and join in the celebration of Skye food and drink.”
