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.
The Old School restaurant has been in business for 35 years and has served many diners from across the world in this time.
