Eddie and Shirley Spear have recently retired to North Berwick to be nearer to their family in Edinburgh. They remain owners and directors of The Three Chimneys and – having established the business, its culinary ethos and high standards throughout – have great faith in the new generation of key employees leading today’s team.
Shirley is still passionate about her involvement with the Scottish tourism and hospitality industry, particularly in encouraging young Scots to develop key skills and make it their career choice. Shirley’s contribution to the industry was recognised when she was crowned Highland Ambassador of the Year in 2012 and she continues to play leading roles in local campaigns.
The Isle of Skye is blessed with miles of deeply indented rocky coastline, sea lochs, sheer cliffs, jagged mountains and volcanic rock stacs. Heather-clad hills and steep glens, hidden lochans, tumbling waterfalls and sparkling mountain burns – all of these things make up the beauty of Skye.
Wayside wild flowers, birds of all kinds, wildlife on land and sea – these beautiful sights and sounds complete the magic that captures the hearts and soothes the souls of visitors from all over the world.
We know the island very well and are only too happy to share this knowledge with you. Please download our summary, or speak to us in person during your time with us.
The Three Chimneys is in a beautiful spot on the sea’s edge by Loch Dunvegan in the north west of the Isle of Skye.
We’re in Colbost, a crofting township that’s part of the larger area of Glendale, surrounded by hills and moorland and near the foot of MacLeod’s Tables, the distinctive flat-topped hills of the Duirinish peninsula. Loch Dunvegan is a wide sea loch that opens into the Minch, the narrow stretch of water that separates Skye from the Outer Hebrides.
