The
Experience

Follow the road for 15 miles down the glen, past tiny cottages and wandering sheep, around the loch and over the mountain, to a converted croft house at the end of the track, where a glass of prosecco greets you on arrival and Belgian hot chocolate is offered before bed.The breakfast room runs along the front of the house with a string of windows that frame the view, and the restaurant is in the conservatory. While the wood-burner keeps things cosy, the small daily-changing menu is testimony to the chef’s exceptional food. Two bedrooms and two suites – simple and stylish – are divided between Coruisk House and The Steading next door.Drop down to Elgol harbour, where Bonnie Prince Charlie fled for his life, and gaze upon the mighty Cuillin rising from the sea – you might also glimpse seals and puffins. You can roam the hills for miles to spot deer.

Reviews

A wonderful three days in Skye. Accommodation very good and the food superb. Claire was a very gracious and informative host. Will recommend to any friends travelling to Skye. A perfect base for three days of exploration.

Magnificent food, lovely accommodation, fabulously friendly and welcoming

Jessica, Bath

Warm and welcoming with fantastic food. Sue and I enjoyed our stay enormously and Iain rose to the challenge with varied and delicious vegetarian options for me.

Location

The neighbourhood

Wild walks start from the door, and the bay of Camasunary is close. The view over Loch Scavaig from Elgol harbour (2km) is one of the most spectacular in the UK. Climb Blaven, the only munro on Skye outside the Cuillin ridge, or take a boat trip to Rum and Canna. It’s a wonderful area for wildlife: you can watch sea eagles and golden eagles circling the house, and red deer trotting into the fields.

Local points of interest from Iain Roden & Clare Winskill

  • Fantastic walks abound. Escape to the real remote part of Skye away from the crowds. Discover clearance villages, Bonnie Prince Charlie's cave and an iron age broch. See the finest view of the Cuillin on Skye!
  • Boat trips from the harbour just a five minute drive away take you to spectacular Loch Coruisk or the stunning islands of Rum and Canna. See sea eagles, golden eagles, dolphins, puffins, basking sharks and (on a good day!) orcas and minke whales....
  • Ask Clare to make a loaf of her delicious bread, truffles and shortbread to take away with you. Please order at the time the room reservation is made
  • New large luxurious suite available. Two double bedrooms each with sumptuous king size double bed. Also includes separate bathroom, shower room and sitting room. White walls, Kate Forman fabrics, large claw foot bath
  • Come and taste our locally sourced venison, Soay mutton and iron age pork from Rachael and Keith Jackson at Orbost. Farm.... Savour David Oakes Sconser scallops - the best in the world!
  • Come and get married here (why not elope.....?). We can help with your arrangements and offer a delicious wedding breakfast for two to 12 guests. Have a look at our website for details
