Duisdale Country House Hotel Broadford - All rooms in the Duisdale Country House Hotel are sumptuously decorated with a tartan accent runs through the decor of the hotel.
The Duisdale was built as a great hunting lodge for the Chief of Clan Macdonald in the 1860’s and has changed very little in all that time albeit has been converted into a first class hotel and provides all the amenities demanded by the discerning traveller in the 21st Century without losing the Victorian influence which makes us so different to all other venues on Skye.
Located to the South of the Island in an idyllic area known as the Garden of Skye the Duisdale stands proudly midway between the Skye Bridge (tolls removed) and the Armadale ferry terminal and en-route to the fishing port of Mallaig and Fort William beyond.
The resident owners, John Cook and entrepreneur Ian Brooks, together with their multi lingual staff will ensure a memorable stay at the Duisdale and should you decide to spend time with us you can be assured of our personal attention at all times in the true Scottish tradition unique to Skye and its wonderful people.
Facing South East and overlooking the Sound of Sleat and beyond to the mountains of Glenelg and Knoydart and with the Black Mountains behind, the hotel benefits from the magical influence of numerous shadows cast by the sun throughout the day and early evening and the rich tapestry of colour it produces never ceases to amaze everyone on Skye.
The interior of the hotel is indicative of the classic Scottish hunting lodge with spacious accommodation, log fires and an attentive staff available at all times to take care of your every need throughout your stay.
All rooms in the Duisdale Country House Hotel are sumptuously decorated with a tartan accent runs through the decor of the hotel.

Be assured of a warm welcome and a memerable stay at the Duisdale
The Isle has a long romantic history. After the disastrous Battle of Culloden in 1746 , Bonnie Prince Charlie sailed 'over the sea to Skye', escaping from Hanoverian redcoats with the aid of Flora MacDonald.
With ruined castles, extraordinary rock formations, friendly people and a lively Gaelic culture, Skye is a popular destination for visitors. Its attractions and full range of accommodation make it ideal for a family holiday.
Skye is a land where folklore, legend and fact are inextricably interwoven. Below you can see a busy communal scene of the land shearing of sheep, traditionally undertaken every year in mid-June. Also below is Norman Magnus MacLeod, 26th Chief of the Clan, photographed on the tower of Dunvegan Castle circa 1910.
Getting here is simplicity in itself:
Drive to Kyle of Lochalsh, cross the free Skye Bridge and at the turning marked A851 turn towards Armadale (left coming from the Bridge). Follow the road to Duisdale and the Hotel is up on your RIGHT (again if you are coming from the Bridge)
Coming via the Mallaig - Armadale ferry proceed from there to Duisdale (direction Skye Bridge). The HOTEL is up on your left.
