An imposing 19th-century baronial mansion set on a 300-acre private island, the Isle of Eriska Hotel is a retreat like no other. Expect a friends-of-the-family welcome, fine dining and tranquillity beyond description.
Approach the Isle of Eriska by bridge, and you’ll arrive in a world of Victorian luxury and fine country house living. Set amid the serene splendour of the west highlands, the hotel lies at the mouth of Loch Creran in the heart of West Argyll.
Dine in the morning room with peaceful views over the lawns to the south, or take lunch in the conservatory, embowered by a mighty oak, as old as the house itself. Local salmon, smoked and delicious, makes for a mouth-watering breakfast.
Scattered here and there about the island, some rooms are traditional; some, contemporary. Cosy rooms are situated within the main house; spa suites are located within the garden; hilltop reserves are at the highest point; and a couple cottages are dotted about the parkland, perfect for families.
With a distinctly homely feel, the highlands experience at Isle of Eriska is all about the outdoors and enjoying the incomparable countryside around you. The Stables Spa and leisure facilities are world-class, but one of the best restorative measures you can take is simply to step outside and inhale deeply the cool, sweet scent of the highlands.
