Built in the 1870s as Duirinish School, and latterly serving Dunvegan as a well stocked near-supermarket, the Old School first opened its doors to diners in in 1985. Maryann and Hugh Mackenzie, Sgitheanachs returning to Skye after a naval career, initially opened the Old School as a tearoom with television repair shop. It quickly evolved into a popular, family restaurant. Now run by their son John, The Old School continues to serve up Skye and Scotland's best produce with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, in what is a popular venue for locals and visitors alike.


Though Seasonal, The Old School is a busy  place- in front and behind the scenes there  is a sizable team without whom The Old School would come to a grinding halt! We are lucky to have members of staff that have been working with us for  5, 10 and 20 years , as well as some new friendly faces. We are all happy to help in any way we can with dietary requirements, allergies or information on this beautiful part of the world that we live in.
