An Island to Call Your Own - Great Location for the Incentive Stay

Posted by Christina Jacobsen on Oct 16, 2013 11:38:00 AM

"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"

Eriska - The Editor's Pick in Aspire's Luxury Travel Club

Posted by Christina Jacobsen on Oct 16, 2013 11:36:00 AM

We are happy to share with you Ms Burkitt's Editor's pick for Aspire last week;

"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".

Eriska Awarded 'Taste our Best' by Visit Scotland

Posted by Christina Jacobsen on Oct 16, 2013 11:34:00 AM

describe the imageEriska was yesterday Awarded its latest award by Visit Scotland of "Taste our Best". This is a new scheme both supported and backed by the Scottish Government which highlights properties which showcase more than 40% of their menu from the locality. Although apparently the locality to the customer ranges greatly but for ease in this excersise - and I am sure nothing to do with the push for independence- Local means Scottish!

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.

'Where 2 Wear It' at Eriska

Posted by Christina Jacobsen on Oct 16, 2013 11:25:00 AM

In August we welcomed Alice from Alice & Co to Eriska, traveling with her partner and journalist. She has included the west coast travels and the island life in her fashion blog! We even lent her the resident dogs Blue and Dibley for the shoot. 

Alice & Co

With a career in theatre and costume design, Alice created Alice & Co after a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway! Alice & Co was a made-to-measure clothing business for women that also offered colour and style consultations.

Now Alice & Co is suddenly 21 years old and has grown to include Designer Raincoats, which is devoted to magnificent macs made in bold PVC colours with a rich oriental brocade inside, and Madame Tra La La, which takes vintage clothes and remakes them to fit the modern woman. 

Reading Alice's blog certainly gives us a few nifty ideas for travelling in style without too much luggage - in other words perfect for the weekend getaways and short breaks!

Mother & Daughter Weekend at Isle of Eriska

Posted by Christina Jacobsen on Oct 16, 2013 11:21:00 AM

"In front is a croquet lawn, where swallows swoop and blackbirds hop, and round the corner a huge ancient oak tree with a swing seat plenty big enough for two".

Last week Eriska was featured in Cosmopolitan Online's 'Weekend - Breaks', by Suzanne King after having spent a few days at Eriska away from the city stress. 

Recommended for couples to enjoy a weekend of spa luxury and time together in peace and quiet, dine in our award winning restaurant and enjoy wine's you wouldn't find on the ordinary wine list.. 

Or, a trip with the girls to come and explore the west coast with an exhilarating boat trip around Loch Linnhe with Coastal Connection (run by two very handsome twin brothers according to Ms King herself), to see dolphins, basking sharks and baby seals. Let's not forget that the spa would also be on the door step offering full day packages, treatment progreammes and other finishing touches, for you to feel transformed and ready for a luxurious meal in our award-winning 3AA Rosette restaurant accompanied with wine's for every taste. 

Or, for the perfect 'mother & daughter' excursions. See what Karen Bowerman had to say about her mother & daughter weekend at Eriska
