Isle of Eriska Hotel & Spa

Oban, Scotland

There's a certain magic about staying on a private island.  Located on the west coast of Scotland, the island boasts gorgeous views overlooking Loch Linnhe and the dramatic Morvern mountains beyond.


Our 300 acre island offers a truly unique and memorable experience.

Highland cattle graze, badgers visit, grey seals and otters swim in the surrounding water and countless birds, including the golden eagle, can be spied soaring overhead.

As far as wildlife is concerned there is no limit to the species you may observe in their natural habitats. Seals can be seen anywhere round the island, so can Roe Deer, and even on occasion Red Deer.

Otters particularly can be seen from Rowan Tree Point and to the West. To celebrate our 40th Anniversary we decided to mark it by adding a permanent new "Guardian of Eriska" in the shape of a life-size bronze sculpture. Wache (old Scottish for 'eternal watcher') was made by bronze sculptor Kenneth Robertson and sits on Otter Point at the west side of the island


The hotel experience delivers unique levels of personal service, with decor blending the traditional with the contemporary. Distant islands form a stunning backdrop whilst visiting guests can enjoy a host of activities on the grounds and our spa and leisure facilities.

The 34 bedrooms offer a variety of accommodation with 16 bedrooms in the main house, 5 spa suites located in the gardens with private hot tub, 2 garden cottages with 2 bedrooms each which are ideal for families and 6 hilltop reserves located on the hilltop overlooking Loch Linnhe again with private hot tub and balconies. 


Finally we also have Arnott’s House our self-catering option with 3 bedrooms situated a small drive from the hotel.

Oban, the main gateway to many of the Hebridean islands, is a waterfront town on a delightful bay, with sweeping views to Kerrera and Mull.


It's peaceful in winter, but in summer the town centre is jammed with traffic and crowded with holidaymakers and travellers headed for the archipelago. But the setting is still lovely, and Oban's brilliant seafood restaurants are marvellous places to be as the sun sets over the bay. There's a real magic to the location.
