A new addition to the Skye’s culinary offering was officially unveiled this week with the opening of bistro style restaurant Dulse & Brose at the Bosville Hotel in Portree.

The opening event, held on June 1, was attended by over 120 guests from around the island including members of the hospitality industry, business community and local food suppliers.

Guests were offered a selection of canapés from a tasting menu accompanied by drinks from the bar including an assortment from Skye Brewery and Talisker Whisky.

The bistro, owned by Scottish firm Perle Hotels, aims to be a place for families and visitors from home and abroad to enjoy uncomplicated but innovative food from locally-sourced produce in relaxed, informal surroundings.

The restaurant, which seats over 50 guests, takes its inspiration from authentic, traditional Scots cuisine combined with international influences brought back from extensive travels by head chef Mandy Todd.

The kitchen places particular emphasis on sourcing locally produced food of the finest quality and is delighted at the variety available from the region’s vast larder. While retaining a distinctly Scottish identity the interior is thoroughly contemporary: handwoven tweed from Skye by Skyeweavers, natural Scots wood and contemporary artwork from Glendale-born printmaker Marion Macphee, create a down to earth, casual atmosphere.
