Our review

So, you don’t have your own private island to escape to for a weekend break? What to do? Head for the next best thing, Isle of Eriska, a five-star resort and member of Relais & Châteaux that is 300 acres of luxury and tranquillity just off the coast near Oban.

Once you’re over the bridge that joins it to the mainland you’re in another world. Easily accessible from Glasgow and Edinburgh, guests can arrive by car, boat, or and take a private seaplane from Glasgow Airport.

Wining and dining is part of the great experience and eating in the restaurant is an occasion in itself. Ingredients are local: fish from the surrounding waters, meat from the hills around the island and game from local gamekeepers, and produce from the gardens is used to great effect. There’s even a smokery onsite.

The cheese trolley is feast in itself, with over thirty cheeses to choose from you are spoilt for choice. A more informal experience awaits at the Deck Restaurant, casual and relaxed a pleasant alternative choice for guests.

It is a country house at its most luxurious, with spa and cottage suites and hill top lodges that offer extra privacy and a more contemporary feel.

Built in 1884, the main house is classic, while the newly refurbished spa suites are up to date, with the privacy to slob around in fluffy robes. Behind high walls there are hot tubs, a conservatory, lounge with kitchen in a cupboard, TV and surround-sound speakers.

There’s a nine-hole golf course, croquet lawn and indoor tennis courts. There’s a beach for skimming stones, a jetty and otter point, where you might be lucky enough to spot one.

The Stables Spa, Eriska’s thermal suite with sauna, steam room, mud rasul, treatment rooms, 17-metre heated indoor swimming pool and gym. An extensive menu uses ESPA and Ishga products, the latter featuring harvested seaweed.

The Isle of Eriska is taking pampering taken to a whole new level.
