Tiny - just 2 rooms and a small restaurant but sublime food and great comfort. Iain and Clare work very hard to give guests peace and relaxation. Apart from the room, there is also a cosy lounge with wood burner and a day bed to read and sleep on. Despite being well away from the city rush, good selection of... More

We'd stayed here before , albeit several years ago with different owners. We had a very pretty bedroom, and two good dinners of which the first was particularly delicious and probably the best food we ate on our trip. All round, a good stay with nice people. We expect that the sort of people who book hotels like this will... More

We splashed out and had one night of luxury at this beautiful restaurant with rooms. Definitely worth a visit, the food was the best we ate whilst visiting Skye. The room was beautiful and the decor was very elegant however I did think the price tag was high for the room.

My friend and I stayed one night at Coruisk House in October while touring through Skye. Clare greeted us upon our arrival and was friendly and welcoming. After talking with her one evening and the following morning, she almost felt like a friend, sharing stories. There are only two guest rooms at Coruisk and we booked both of them for... More

We stayed for just one night and Clare couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. We really had the most wonderful stay, the meal in the restaurant was of a very high standard indeed and the wine list was my idea of perfect. Coruisk is not your standard B&B experience, the owners have gone the extra mile to deliver something... More

Such a delightful surprise to find this jewel of a place far down a single track road at the edge of the world. After a long day exploring this most exquisite island, one might hope for cozy, comfortable surroundings. One might wish for outstanding meals. One could even dream of a welcoming, lovely hostess. But to find all three of... More

The rooms face east toward amazing sunrises and meandering sheep on the moor. Don't let mapping apps confuse you about the location. Yes, it's just off the road - that is to say, a single track road with occasional cars passing by, during the day, at 5 mph (on account of the sheep). It's quiet and gorgeous. There are two... More

The 13 mile drive down a single-track road, although challenging, was well worth it because of the destination! We booked both rooms at Courisk House as we were travelling with friends. Clare and Iain are great hosts. We were offered tea and fudge when we arrived. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, with many amenities. It feels more like... More

We ate very well in Scotland recenty, but felt the need to review this B&B as the quality of the food did not correlate with the price or the Tripadvisor reviews. We had two perfectly OK, but not special starters. The squat lobster came with Ian's homemade mayonnaise, which had clearly been sitting in the fridge too long as it... More

Clare W, Owner at Coruisk House, responded to this review

Just to mention that our mayonnaise is made with fresh free range eggs which means it is not the same colour as shop bought mayonnaise. One of our guests actually described Iain as an 'artist' for his mayonnaise on the same evening that you were here. The piece of meat that you had was Highland beef fillet steak with slow... More

Sadly only spent 2 nights here - wish it was longer. Superb food , most of it sourced locally that day, very well cooked and presented. Claire and Ian work extremely hard to provide a first class experience and easily match other well known names on Skye at half the price. Definitely one to return to.
