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.

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...
