Arnott's House

 On The Isle of Eriska

 We wanted to create a true Scottish Self Catering accommodation unit whilst at the same time retain the ease of access to the spa, leisure and dining facilities of the main house and hotel.

Since opening in 201, Arnott's House has become popular for friends and families to enjoy the Oban area and luxury island, offering guests a unique self- catering experience on Eriska - on your own private island on the westcoast of Scotland.



Throughout the main season it is let on a weekly basis to for up to 6 guests, offering a real retreat and escape.arnotts-house-isle-of-eriska-benderloch-terrace-view.jpg

Arnott’s house was built in 1850 and was named after Arnot the redoubtable butler of the Clark Huchiesons who owned Eriska through the turn of last century. The traditional stone built farm house has been refurbished and offers guests privacy and access to the Isle of Eriska estate.

The spacious 3-bedroom self-catering Arnott’s house is located on the secluded east side of the Island, 50 metres above Loch Creran and enjoys magnificent views toward Ben Cruachan. Inside the house guests are welcomed by a modern living space spread over two floors, three en-suite bedrooms and conservatory face over the beautiful view of Loch Creran. The living area benefits from dual aspect views and a conservatory that catches the light from the east and offers a wonderful bright and airy space overlooking the garden

A fully equipped modern kitchen is situated at the back of the property looking out to the private grounds of the house, perfect for watching for your friends and family returning from their private path down to the tidal stoney beach at loch Creran. Outside of the house, there is a covered boot room and drying area, whilst adjacent to the conservatory lies a large six person outdoor hot tub perfect as you soak up the magnificent views overlooking the surrounding mountains and islands. Eriska itself is a 300 acre paradise for those simply wishing to wander. It is easy to do simply walk till you meet the sea or partcipate in a range of activities, alternatively for those wishing to relax guests are welcome to use the Stables Spa and there 17 meter pool, sauna, steam room and Spa pool or why not treat yourself to a Rasul Mud Treatment.


Arnott’s house although fully equipped as a self-catering property guests can also experience food from our Michelin Starred Kitchen, we can arrange a simple supper in Arnott’s house, relaxed dining for lunch and/or early dinner in our new Deck restaurant, for a grander affair a reservation at the main hotel restaurant where guests can choose from our seasonal dinner menu or tasting menu. The house is a perfect base.

Without further ado...Eriska Hilltop Reserve

After what seemed like endless work, we here at the Isle of Eriska are proud to announce the completion of the Island's newest feature: two Hilltop Reserves

From Summer 2013, Eriska has been carefully executing plans to add two new self catering lodges onto the Island to offer guests a new type of escape on our luxurious Scottish Island

Witness our progress over the last year, with our Hilltop scrapbook; documenting the creation of the Hilltop Reserves from start to finish:
