"On Friday all I knew was that we were heading "west". David had planned it all.
“One of the genuine 5 star hotels in Scotland. From our initial welcome before we had even set foot in the hotel, to the goodbye from Beppo, the owner, Eriska never failed to justify its price tag."
"You have a beautiful facility there but the greatest assets are the people and you were all very welcoming and helpful. Many thanks."
We are very pleased to announce that once again, the Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Golf has received Gold under the Green Tourism business grading scheme.

"Many people in the world have a dream of ‘getting away from it all’ and escaping to their own private island. There is something enchanting about an island and in Scotland there are hundreds for the intrepid traveller to choose from. That said, not all have their own five star hotel with spa and golf course! Welcome to the Isle or Eriska, a dream come true for any incentive group"
"Despite the excitement of spotting a kettle of sea eagles during the day, it was in fact the stacked cheese trolley which caused audible squeals when it rolled our way after dinner. Try Prince Charles’s favourite Dunsyre Blue, or Loch Arbor if you can bear the smell of kippers.
You may blame this dairy indulgence for any subsequent dreams – but I can assure you the badgers (Bertie and Brock) who drop by the conservatory for bread and milk every night are real".
However the scheme does not stop a simply awarding a plaque but also offers feedback to business about where they could make a difference Scotland of Food & Drink is a website that helps businesses identify other potential producers which may currently be anonymous and unknown. We were delighted to not only be one of the first to be recognised but more imporantly that this recognition aligns so clearly with our principles. Hopefully the scheme will take off and be a great success and that will require the customers to grasp and support it too.
A lovely video by Andrew Evans of the badgers coming to the steps for milk in the evenings. You may have seen them, if not come and see us when you are here to see when they visit.
We are going to the Wee Beauty Photography wedding exhibition in Connel next Saturday.
