The Duisdale House Hotel is a former hunting lodge built in 1857 for the head of the McDonald Clan. It remained in the family and was later rented out and transformed into a hotel. Under different ownerships the hotel flourished. The large vegetable garden was one of the main emblems for the hotel. Rather neglected during the previous ownership, the hotel is now back to its former glory, with a contemporary design which blends in perfectly with the old surroundings. Duisdale House Hotel’s restaurant offers a table d’hôte menu offering modern Scottish cuisine using carefully-selected suppliers including many local Skye partners. The award-winning restaurant presents the diner with choice before even seeing a menu – with choices to dine in the fine dining restaurant which sports 2 AA rosettes, in the less formal Chart Room offering an a la carte menu, our conservatory with views of the gardens to the Sound of Sleat or in our intimate fireside area. There is an extensive wine list with something to complement every palate. The Malt Whisky selection comes highly recommended or there’s a traditional Skye Ale to enjoy in the Chart Room Bar.

Continue along the road approximately 7 miles to Duisdale and the Hotel is clearly signed on the right, just after entering the 40 miles per hour zone. If arriving via Mallaig, on arrival at Armadale take the main road and drive along for 10 miles to Duisdale Mor and the hotel is up on the left.
