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

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

To celebrate Scotland’s Year of Stories, 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.
