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.

Arrived around 3:30 to be personally welcomed by Clare by name. It's the little things that 'make the difference'. Lovely and nicely appointed room with views across to The Cuillin Hills. Clare took the time to chat and remembered personal aspects on the reason for our visit. Enough said-She is a great hostess and clearly takes pleasure in the service... More

First class dinning experience with exquisite local produce in very relaxed atmosphere. If you are staying in one of the local self catering/B&B don't miss it - but do book in advance it was obvious that word is spreading on the evening we were there.

Beautiful setting and view. Elgol is truly a special place to visit. Coruisk house is stunning. The bed is a little creaky and so are the stairs (beauty of sound is in the ear of the beholder) and a few doors slam, but this is soon forgotten when you absorb the beauty around you and fall asleep after the excitement...

Wow ! On so many levels this night was the highlight of trip around Scotland. Skye is dramatically beautiful and Elgol stands out as the place we will remember most amoung many good memories. It is impossible to say whether the food or the hospitality was the better as teh combination made for such a relaxing stay that we can't... More

I wish we had been able to stay longer at this magical cottage. We booked both charming rooms for one night. Our dinner here was nothing short of extraordinary - so fresh, so respectful of pure local ingredients, and so delicious and expertly prepared. The mussels were beyond heavenly. Clare made us feel so welcome and cared for, lighting a... More

We stayed with Clare and Iain for two nights in the Four Poster Bedroom and had a wonderful time. Very cosy room with a very comfy bed! We had very good breakfast and we enjoyed wonderful dinner both nights (we are still talking about the lobster!). Clare and Iain are friendly hosts who show that they really care about their... More

Highly recommended. Menu changes daily and features just one or two entrees that are handcrafted and made with local ingredients. There's a reason the restaurant has only three tables and requires reservations - it's a very personal experience!
