“A gourmet hideaway…a nugget of decadence against the howl of the wild” – Suitcase Magazine

Kitchen On The Edge Of The World at its heart is an extraordinary culinary adventure set above the Arctic Circle. Whilst this long weekend offers many things to divert and enrich you, our promise is that you will leave having been fed with the finest ingredients caught, picked and gathered from the abundant natural larder that surrounds us through the seasons.

We invite you to stay with us for four nights, surrounded by sea and mountains, immersed in a landscape that is both breathtaking and very present. Whatever the season here, you will reconnect with nature and its rhythms.

Each night you will be seated at the chef’s table with a handful of fellow adventurers, watching the feast unfold before you from the open kitchen as you sip on carefully created cocktails. During the day you create your perfect place, whether that’s being out in the invigorating clean air with experts in outdoor pursuits or cosying up by the fire with a book. For those who want to pack it in we will be running craft workshops so that you may return with perhaps a handmade knife or artwork. And of course… our home is celebrated for being one of the best spots for sea fishing anywhere in the world.
