A Skye hotel has been named Luxury Hotel of the Year in the 2019 Good Hotel Guide.
Kinloch Lodge received the accolade in the guide, published today (Monday 8 October).
Kinloch's owner, Isabella Macdonald said: "We are all overjoyed at Kinloch to receive such a prestigious award. The Good Hotel Guide is 100% independent, based entirely on recommendations by their readers, which makes this an award from our many guests. 'Luxury' means many different things to different people.
"To us, luxury is the genuine warmth of hospitality we aim to give. It is our active encouragement that our guests feel at home by the fires, while we bring them drinks. It is for someone to greet them in the morning and ask if they slept well. Throughout the experience, we want our guests to know that their comfort and happiness really matters to us. Hospitality is ultimately about care, and being cared for is a true luxury.
"This award is for the whole team at Kinloch, each individual is so precious and essential to our success."
