Just how romantic would it be to get Married on your own Private Island?
Today I want to shine my Venue Spotlight on the Isle of Eriska Hotel and Spa which offers luxurious 5 Star accommodation with a view to match, situated just off the West Coast of Scotland, near Oban, Scotland.
A few weeks ago I met the team behind this fabulous find, and I am thrilled to be able to share on the Blog.
There is always something magical about an island, and Eriska is no exception.
Nestling on the eastern side of one of the world’s most celebrated rift valleys, and born of the cataclysmic upheavals of more than 600 million years ago, the formation of the island is largely of schist and slate with the lower ground to the west as a raised beach from the island.
The partly submerged Crannog, or fortified dwelling, dating from the Bronze Age around 200 B.C and situated some 200 metres in the channel to the east of the bridge, marks the earliest recorded human history of the island.
From the surge of Norse invasions, Notably Erik the Red, which swept the west coast of Scotland in the 10th Century, the name of the island is derived.
Eriska is a unique combination of three assets- the hotel and its accommodation, the Stables and all the leisure facilities and the Estate, which comprises of 350 acres of which the majority is on the island but also 50 acres on the mainland which includes a Special area of Scientific Interest.
The Island sits at the mouth of Loch Creran, a Marine Site designated Special Area Conservation. Part of the charm of Eriska is the ability it offers to explore the estate and enjoy the island as if it were your own.
From the formal ground to the western seaboard to the rugged hill side, the whole estate has a charm and is genuinely interesting and exciting to explore whether you are a nature and wildlife devotee or simply keen to walk and wander the many paths and trails in search of peace and tranquility.
Carefully blending the old with the new their designer rooms & luxury suites offer the finest bed linen, rich fabrics, and warm, contemporary décor. They anticipate your every need with a wide range of in-room facilities and guest services.
You can also host your Wedding or Exclusive Use Event at the Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa and Golf at any time throughout the year for an Eriska Experience Wedding to remember.
Enjoy 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast for up to 49 guests on your own island:

Sauna, steam room & jacuzzi

Imagine use of this beautiful place and all its wonderful facilities and the ability to tailor your Wedding the way you want it without the constrictions you sometimes get with other Venues.
You can get married in the Hotel or on the Island, or there are several churches on the mainland for your Ceremony too.
Arrive in style via helicopter on the lawn or seaplane at the pier, or the Island can be accessed from the mainland by car or coach by Bridge.
