Duisdale House  (Shortlist*)

In a stunning setting within extensive gardens and woodland, Anne Gracie and Ken Gunn have transformed a Victorian hunting lodge into a small, hospitable hotel; they also own Toravaig House nearby (see main entry). Decorated in a modern style, bedrooms have bold prints and wallpaper; some overlook the gardens or loch, while others have views across to the Highlands beyond. Seasonal local produce from Skye and the Highlands is served in the restaurant; Peter Cullen is the new chef. The Chart Room, overlooking the Sound of Sleat, is a relaxing place for pre-dinner drinks and casual dining; afternoon tea can be taken by the log fire in the lounge or outside on the south-facing deck. Guests may book days out on the hotel's luxury yacht (Apr--Sept), with lunch and champagne included (whales, dolphins, seals and seabirds optional). Lounge, bar, restaurant, conservatory. Free Wi-Fi. Background music. Weddings. 35-acre grounds (10-person garden hot tub). Children welcomed. 18 bedrooms (2 family rooms; 1 garden suite suitable for disabled). Per person B&B £73.50--£165, D,B&B £99--£210
  • Excellent Food & friendly staff.

  • Personal service, a stunning location, gourmet dining. What more could one ask of a 5 star small friendly hotel?
