Duisdale Hotel, Skye

Duisdale house dates from about 1867, and was built by Matthews and Lawrie. The three storey distinctive twin bays to the front may have been a later addition. The township of Duisdale in south Skye was at one time home to Mackinnons who had been granted the township for their services as standard bearers of Macdonalds of Sleat. Duis is the Gaelic for misty or gloomy. The house, seen here from the garden which was once well known for its produce, has been extended several times and run as an hotel since the early 1900s.
