With stunning views over the sound of Sleat and mainland mountains beyond, Duisdale House Hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring the romantic Isle of Skye. Built as a hunting lodge for the Clan Macdonald family in the 1860s, Duisdale sits in its own grounds of 30 acres which include lush, sleepy gardens and extensive ancient woodlands. The hotel itself has recently been completely refurbished and is now a stylish, contemporary, retreat.
Beyond its stone and slate exterior lie many original features; the original fireplaces, beautiful staircase and ornate ceiling cornices, which all blend perfectly with the hotels’ new dramatic, chic interior. Luxurious, contemporary fabrics and wall coverings together with chic new furniture combine to create the perfect backdrop for the extensive a la carte menu, where each dish is creatively prepared mainly using fresh Island produce – all with a contemporary twist of course! Skye Seafood including Langoustines and Scallops, Lamb, Beef, organic vegetables and salad leaves are all skillfully prepared by the talented kitchen brigade.
Feature and Four Poster beds make up the eighteen, mainly double bedrooms, each one unique in design and layout. With the emphasis on romance and luxury, sensuous Arran Aromatic Toiletries, thick fluffy towels and crisp bedding all complete the luxurious package.
Exclusive daily sailing trips are available from April to September on the hotels private yacht which is crewed by owners Anne and Ken. This is indeed a magical experience.
Make sure you don’t miss out on the deliciously, dramatic Duisdale House Hotel.
