Marcello has built an award-winning team where a Michelin star was gained in 2010 and retained for 7 years. Kinloch is regarded as one of Scotland’s most reputable restaurants.

Marcello serves incredible dishes using the bountiful supplies from Skye’s natural and delicious larder. His approach to cooking centres around the core ingredients, which are the freshest and finest, from the Island’s coastlines and lochs. His food is unquestionably Scottish, yet it remains influenced by modern European preparations, yet finding room for influences from his Brazilian heritage. Kinloch’s mission is to give its guests an unforgettable experience; to feed the body and soul. The Isle of Skye is one of the top locations in Scotland and is famous for its scenery and landscapes that simply take your breath away. Recently voted ‘The most desirable place to live’ in Britain, the Isle of Skye is 50 miles long and the largest of the Inner Hebridean Islands. It is a world class destination for walkers and climbers and is steeped in rich history. There are many outdoor activities – walks and an abundance of wildlife; sea eagles, whale and otter watching, sea and loch fishing. It’s also a photographer’s paradise.

Working as part of an extremely valued team and working closely with senior and junior chefs you must be able to work independently as well as part of a busy brigade of 7. You should be passionate, dedicated and hardworking. In return you will be working for the best, serving some of the best food in Scotland.
