Flodigarry (Hotel), Ross & Macbeth, 1892. One of Skye's substantial Victorian lodges sheltered by wooded policies beneath the massive basalt ramparts. Built for Maj. R. Macdonald, the crowstepped block of flinty rubble is 'offset' by a mock-fortified billiard room wing of 1895, decorated in the Moorish style. Major Macdonald was a descendant of Flora Macdonald, whose early married home here (from 1751-64) is probably the core of Flodigarry Cottage, a pair of dwellings now largely 19th century, refurbished late 20th century.
