Historic family run house and restaurant, with quaint rooms nestled within 5 acres of mature gardens, free parking and now with fibre optic wifi!
Mackinnon House was built in 1912 by Major Archie Mackinnon. Archie used the house as a recovery home for injured Royal Navy and Army personnel during WW2. Mackinnon House is steeped in military history, with continued ties not only to just British forces, but our allies in general, as can be seen from the many military crests, photos and memorabilia in our Hero’s bar.
We are the first hotel on the beautiful Isle of Skye, we are an ideal base for exploring Skye and surrounding areas.
There is so much to see and do, such as exploring the stunning Dunvagan Castle, or a hike up the Cullians with a stop at the fairy pools, or why not visit the most photo’d and filmed castle in Scotland the Eilean Donan Castle. Fancy some adventure? We have that to, with boat trips or for the more adventurists why not try axe throwing? Here on the Isle of Skye, home of the talented Danny Macaskill, we have something for everyone. So if it is a romantic break, a family holiday, a photography tour, or an adventure trip, this is the place to be.
What’s more, we now offer an online concierge service. Allow us to book your boat trip, or trip to Talisker, and many more taking the stress out of your trip, just click on our concierge tab.
