From fantastic wildlife and jaw-dropping scenery to fine whisky and a fascinating history, the Isle of Skye needs very little introduction.
Reach for Skye with this Big Deal on a one or two night B&B stay at the four star Duisdale House Hotel.
Winner of the Catering in Scotland Excellence Award for Best Independent Hotel in 2015, it is a welcoming and sophisticated spot from which to enjoy this wild and romantic island.
Boutique hotel on Skye
Built in 1865, the eighteen bedroom, boutique hotel is set in 35 acres of grounds on the Southern Peninsula, the lush, green area known as the Garden of Skye.
Close to the ferry link to Mallaig and near to the bridge, the award-winning hotel faces east which means guests can enjoy magnificent morning sunrise views over the sea to the mountains of the mainland.
Available seven days a week, this Big Deal is for a one or two night stay in a twin or double room with a woodland or garden view.
The offer includes a full Scottish or continental breakfast each morning. Options one and two include a glass of Prosecco to toast your arrival.
Option one includes use of the hot tub – ideal after a day on the hills.
Option two includes a cream tea.
Option three includes a two course dinner on the first night and a glass of wine each.
Upgrades to either a four poster garden view or a sea view room may be available for supplements of £30 and £60 respectively per night.
Each bedroom at Duisdale House Hotel has been refurbished in its own unique and contemporary style. Rich, bold fabrics, flat screen TVs and luxury toiletries in the ensuite bathrooms are standard.
Finest Scottish ingredients
When it comes to dining, visitors to Duisdale are spoiled. The Lounge, with its open fire and comfy sofas is the top spot to relax and enjoy some afternoon tea and freshly baked scones with jam and cream.
The Chart Room is perfect for a pre-dinner drink or a casual lunch or evening meal. It also features an interesting cocktail list and a great range of malts for the evenings.
The centrepiece of the dining options is the fine dining restaurant under Head Chef David Allan. His menus, which use the finest Scottish ingredients, have won two AA Rosettes for the restaurant.
The menus change with the seasons but typical starters might be the hand-dived Kyle scallops served with sesame, carrot, cauliflower while the Highland beef roast sirloin with crispy shin, roast shallot and smoked mash is a popular main course.
See & Do on Skye
Of course, there is no shortage of walking, climbing or wildlife spotting to enjoy on Skye but there is also no need to leave the hotel. Enchanting walks though the garden and surrounding woodlands will sharpen the appetite for dinner.

‘Another great stay. We have now visited Duisdale on five occasions with family, our children and now on a two day break as a couple. A fantastic location, great rooms and lots to see locally. Without doubt the highlight is the restaurant which has stepped on again this year – fantastic options on the set menu and two great evenings. Thanks to all the staff.’
