Review on Duisdale Country House Hotel

Built as a great hunting lodge for the Chief of Clan Macdonald in the 1860s, this Victorian mansion has changed very little with time – although it now boasts up-to-the-minute facilities. It's hidden away to the south of the Island (between the Skye Bridge and the Armadale ferry terminal) in an area known as the Garden of Skye, only 300 yards from the beach.

A superb collection of original blue-and-white china plates is the most striking feature of the dining room: they complement the Delft tiles that were imported from Holland when the house was built. Produce from Scotland's larder shows up strongly in full-blooded dishes such as steak, mushroom and ale pie, sugar-cured duck with young vegetables or – in lighter vein – roast turbot on a bed of home-grown spinach with mussels in saffron and herb sauce.

To finish, you might fancy a plate of local hand-made cheeses or something sweet such as sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce or cracked black pepper strawberries flamed in malt whisky.
