Pillow Talk
Opt for a luxury Spa suite and have an after-dark soak in your private outdoor hot tub. Or try the Glensanda room, with its own turret  at the top of the house.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Scottish cuisine is Eriska’s speciality. The varied menu includes dishes such as boneless saddle of rabbit with morels, spinach and mustard seed veloute, followed by pan-fried monkfish with slow braised pork belly, spiced lentils and carrot essence. Finish off with a hot chocolate Madeleine accompanied by rhubarb compote and gingerbread ice. 

Breakfast
If you fancy a lie-in that’s fine: you can have a cooked breakfast, porridge or even haggis brought to your room until 12 noon. Alternatively you can breakfast in the dining room until 9.30am.

Room service
Available 24 hours a day.

Activities

See & Do
Explore this wonderful little private idyll on foot, following signed footpaths around the island. Look out for seals from the deserted beach, play a round of golf on the six-hole course, knock up on the tennis court, pick up a mountain bike or shoot some clays. If you're happy to get wet try wind surfing, or take to the waves in style with a sunset  cruise. Catch a ferry in nearby Oban for a daytrip to the beautiful isles of Mull, Staffa and Iona, visit awesome Glencoe or the scenic shores of Loch Awe... the list is endless.

Spa
It's full-on pamper time at Isle of Eriska's Spa. Submit to a Priadara Thai massage, a holistic aromatherapy treatment, Hopi ear candles or an Essence of Earth skin brushing, exfoliation and mud wrap. For the guys, a traditional wet shave or some reflexology are just some of the options.
