Beautifully situated amidst stunning scenery on the Durinish Peninsula, Silverdale Guest House and Silverdale self-contained Cottage, are just a wee bit up from the shores of Loch Dunvegan.
With Macleod's Tables to the rear, views of the Cuillin Mountains to the south, and uninterrupted views northwards to the Outer Isles, this is a spectacular and peaceful spot.
We are 5 miles east of historic Dunvegan Castle and just a few miles west of us is dramatic Neist Point, the most westerly point on the island with its vertical cliffs and walk to the lighthouse.
Directions via Broadford
Follow the road from Broadford northwards to Sligachan. The quickest route which is also very scenic is sign-posted Dunvegan at Sligachan. Just follow the Dunvegan sign to the left. Continue for around 20 miles. Just before Dunvegan is a sign to the left for Glendale. Take that and go past Kenny’s Garage and the Fire Station. Shortly after that the road bends to the right (signed Glendale, Skye Silver, Three Chimneys.) Do NOT go straight on to Orbost! Follow the Glendale road to Skinidin. Three quarters of a mile after the Skinidin sign you will see the big blue Silverdale sign on the left. The gate opens outwards so pull up a bit short! Please close the gate behind you on entering in order to keep the sheep in the right places.
Directions via Portree
Take the Dunvegan road out of Portree. Continue to Borve and follow the left fork to Dunvegan which is clearly signposted. Follow the road into Dunvegan. You will see the Dunvegan Hotel in front of you and the Tables Hotel to the left. Turn left there, and proceed through the village. There are two petrol stations. Shortly after the right hand petrol station there is a right turn signposted to Glendale. Follow that past the camp site. When you come to a T junction turn right toward Glendale. Skinidin is around three miles from there. Again we are about three quarters of a mile past the Skinidin sign. There is adequate parking within the grounds of Silverdale and a dedicated space at the top of the drive for Cottage guests.
