• Skye, Scotland, is the spot for seafood

    2010-08-13

    Once the kids have left, many empty nesters set out on vacations or second honeymoons in order to have new experiences. For couples who love to go out to eat, it doesn't get much better than the Isle of Skye.

    Skye is a quiet, peaceful and extremely scenic island in the north of Scotland that would probably qualify as a great spot for a romantic getaway on its own. But the fact that the island boasts a number of incredible seafood restaurants is what sets it apart.

    According to The New York Times, the secret to Skye's seafood success is that nearly all of the restaurants locally source their ingredients from the nearby waters. That means all the high-quality oysters, salmon and scallops that one can eat. A number of restaurants have opened on the island that adopt a quaint and homemade attitude to dining while still delivering world class cuisine.

    Travelers should be sure to check out the Kinloch Lodge, for example, a restaurant that has earned a Michelin star for its cuisine and atmosphere - no small feat for an eatery outside of a major city. Yet the Kinloch is far from the only option couples have in the area, with destinations like the Glenview Inn, Three Chimneys and Flodigarry Country House also winning praise.

    Even better, most of the restaurants also double as inns, so guests can easily find lodging in the area and explore many at once.
