The Three Chimneys was victorious at the Blue Badge Access Awards ceremony, held in London last week.

The restaurant won an award for its stylish, accessible and inclusive design.  

Thirteen awards in total were presented on the night, recognising venues and businesses with a stylish approach to accessibility.

The Three Chimneys won the top award in the Best Restaurant (upmarket) category, which is sponsored by Conran and Partners.

The judging panel included Fiona Jarvis (chief executive of Blue Badge Style), Tina Norden (partner at Conran and Partners), Alex Taylor (BBC journalist), Paul Vaughan (Bespoke Access), Neil Heslop (chief executive of Leonard Cheshire Disability), and Karen Fewell (daughter of the late accessibility campaigner, Arnold Fewell).

Sarah Campbell, The Three Chimneys and The House Over-By, Guest Services Manager commented: “It’s so touching and appreciated that all this quiet, thorough, dedicated effort has been celebrated by The Blue Badge Access Awards with this generous recognition.

“Access can mean many things to different people. Most immediately, people think of the beautiful and thoughtfully conceived physical design of The Three Chimneys’ accessible entrances, rooms, bathrooms and toilets. For others it is all about how to find us in such a remote location and ensure that their special dietary requirements are catered for.

“For me and my experienced Guest Services Team, it’s really about getting our research right, ensuring that we anticipate and prepare for every access request. So come the day of arrival, we can confidently offer the warmest of Skye welcomes knowing that every guest is sharing the same quality of our Retreat, Eat and Sleep experience.”
