The celebrated Isle of Eriska
Bepto Buchanan-Smith, owner of the Isle of Eriska since 1992, was delighted with the award, commenting: “This is a great recognition for everyone who has worked here for the last 40 years.”
Chef Michael Smith of The Three Chimneys said: “We have won many accolades over the years, but this is special. I am still a bit shell-shocked. We have always strived to produce quality local food and this is a fantastic recognition. It is a great confidence boost which will inspire young Scottish people to stay in the Highlands and rural areas and pursue a career in food.”
Though two Scottish restaurants lost their Michelin star status, thirteen more retained theirs, five of which were in Edinburgh alone. Restaurant Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles retained its two stars, and remains Scotland’s highest rated restaurant.
