Tales From The Fireside

What better way to learn about the mysteries and legends of Skye than from one of the locals.

Coinneach Maclean is our local historian, archeaologist and professional tour guide here in Sleat. He has many tales to tell regarding the true stories that created Skye’s history and heritage.

During the winter months, Duisdale House Hotel will be hosting Tales From The Fireside with after dinner enrichment from Coinneach, who will be on hand to bring to life the mysteries and unravel the misconceptions around Skye’s heritage.

From Skye’s Greatest Villains to real tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie in Skye, Coinneach will entertain with a repertoire of local stories whilst you enjoy a complementary dram or local gin before dinner.
