Today we went to a wedding photo exhibition, and earlier this week we were featured in the Luxury Travel Blog as one of the Top 5 intimate wedding venues in Scotland - which is not without reason! Therefore what better to write about than the luxury and romance of an island wedding?

Placed on our own 300 acre private island, it could not get more idyllic, the hotel was built by the Stewards of Appin over 100 years ago, set in the typical baronial style of the time, inspired by the great architect Hippolyte Blanc, which is also known for his drawings of St. Cuthbert’s Church in Edinburgh and most of the restoration work on Edinburgh Castle. We are licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 120 guests or as few as 30, in the main house and outside in the garden. For a larger wedding, a luxurious marquee can be placed on the front lawn, just outside the hotel with views towards the pond.

Each room in the hotel is uniquely designed, with a contemporary dining room and library bar, the drawing room offers a spacious and relaxing atmosphere and a large traditional main hall with a roaring log fire. We have 25 contemporary, luxurious and individually designed rooms, spa suites and cottages, to suit all types of guests. Some say it's sometimes a bit like travelling, they find out something new every time they visit or they wish they could visit to explore each room!

Something for everyone...

Capturing the Moment

Weddings at Isle of EriskaWe were at the Oyster Inn in Connel today to take part in Wee Beauty Photography's 2nd year celebration and photo exhibition. With stunning pictures, video collage and procecco, we were shown the most beautiful moment after the other. Each picture showed how special the wedding is to the people and families involved, the fun, the nerves and expectations, and the exhilaration. If you get a chance have a look at their pictures online - they have something for every bride and groom's taste. 


Isle of Eriska - Unique and Private - Yet Accessible
