Dining at Skibo Castle

Passion on a Plate

The chefs at Skibo are passionate about food, and it shows through on the plate. Executive Chef Craig Rowland, recently invested as a Fellow of the prestigious Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, oversees a team of talented professionals committed to offering members world-class cuisine.

Start your day with a selection of homemade granola, fresh fruit salad, locally smoked salmon or croissants baked fresh that morning by the Skibo pâtissier. Perhaps you will top your traditional porridge with the jams, preserves and marmalades crafted by Chef Lindsay’s mum in nearby Helmsdale, or with a spoonful of honey gathered from the hives right here on the estate. For those who prefer a heartier breakfast, a classic Scottish fry-up is available to set you up for the day ahead.

Lunch is served in the Clubhouse which, with its floor to ceiling windows, offers outstanding views of the Dornoch Firth.

With a selection of exquisite fare on offer – everything from salads and seafood to wood-fired pizzas and beer battered fish and chips – it’s difficult to remember to leave room for dessert!

Afternoon Tea

Members can enjoy a traditional afternoon tea in the castle Drawing Room, served daily from 4pm to 6pm. Choose from a selection of loose leaf teas and tuck into finger sandwiches, mini macarons, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and raspberry jam, and other sweet treats.
