Fusion Group acquires Isle of Skye hotel with plan to reposition and rebrand


The MacKinnon Country House Hotel on the Isle of Skye has been acquired by Fusion Group, who now plan to rebrand and reposition the business.

The Group will relaunch the property as The Isle of Skye Guest House and subject to planning will also develop part of the grounds into new lodges.

If given the green light, Fusion will build 34 two-bedroom lodges for let as well as a custom built club house.

Built in 1912 by Major Archie MacKinnon, the house is overlooked by the Sgurr na Coinnich mountain range, and is one of the first stop offs after the Skye Bridge.

The property currently has nine bedrooms in the main guest house. A further six are in a separate garden lodge.

Alex McKie, group managing director of Fusion Group, said: “We’re pleased and delighted to announce this significant acquisition of MacKinnon House on Skye. It marks an exciting time as we emerge from one of the most challenging times for our sector, but I have to say we as a group are coming out of it stronger, more diverse and in a position to positively disrupt the market. There’s more in the pipeline too.” Fusion Group’s portfolio includes Old Churches House in Dunblane.

  1. I would have though The Mackinnon Country House Hotel would have been a good name to keep for the Guest House as you are in Authentic Mackinnon County of Strath on the south end of Skye
    Even with a rebrand, that’s what it will be known as, seeing it has been known as that since 1912,
    Surely promoting all things local such as the history of Mackinnon, has to be of benefit rather than the generic use of The Isle of Skye,
