Posted by Elizabeth Todd on Oct 3, 2016 4:04:29 PM

We are so pleased to announce that our Head Chef, Paul Leonard, has retained Eriska's Michelin Star!

Paul and his team here at the Isle of Eriska, have continued to develop our offerings, whilst ensuring that we maintain a high standard for our guests. Using products sourced locally, is an important aspect for Paul and the kitchen team, which has led to a number of supplies growing right here on the Isle of Eriska as well as the development of strong relationships with local suppliers.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our guests who have supported us and continue to support the Isle of Eriska. Thank you to all those who have given their praise to our team. 

If you haven't yet experienced Paul's creations here at the Isle of Eriska, here's a little flavour...

Eriska's Wine Weekend - 12th November 2016

Posted by Elizabeth Todd on Aug 25, 2016 7:00:00 PM

Dates for our upcoming wine weekend have been announced: Saturday 12th November 2016

DSC_2225__WINE_IN_WINE_RACK_ERISKA__MEDIUM_350x282.jpgWe are delighted to welcome Philippe Larue, Managing Director of L'Art du Vin, on the outskirts of Edinburgh to host our wine weekend. This year Philippe has worked with Eduardo to develop and evolve our wine list, working to embrace the biodynamic march across Europe. They were tasked with setting up a list which not only balanced and complimented the creations from the kitchen but brought like minded producers who understand our ethos of flavour and taste. 

On Saturday 14th November, we look forward to Philipppe matching some particular examples of biodynamic wines with our menu to show how real, truly organic wines have a lasting ability and enhanced our kitchen creations.

Rates for 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfats with matched wines on the Saturday evening start from £370 per person.

Call us on 01631 720371 or email for further information or to book.
