We stayed for two nights in the ensuite room in the oldest part of the house. Our room was comfortable, had a four poster and traditional furnishings / decor. The bathroom was a little tired and the ligjting wasnt great, but the owners will be first to admit they still have work to do. There is also a guests lounge with nice soft furnishings and a wood burning stove.
The hosts Claire and Iain were very friendly and informative. Breakfasts were very nice.
This is really a restaurant with rooms and I cannot recommend the food and service highly enough - superb sea food, fish and great desserts (lime cold soufflé!!!).
This is a good location if you plan to explore the southern ridge of the Cullin Hills. Beware it is a 14 mile single track road to get you back to the main road if you want to visit other parts of Skye, however the views on this drive are gorgeous.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Coruisk House is the Restaurant with Rooms in Elgol. It is situated in the tiny but stunning fishing village of Elgol, two miles from the harbour. Elgol harbour overlooks Loch Scavaig towards the most spectacular view on the Isle of Skye - towards the Cuillin Ridge. Boat trips are available from Elgol Harbour between March to October for visits to Loch Coruisk and the islands of Soay, Rum and Canna (Iain and Clare will book the boat trips for their guests). Outside of these months, and weather dependent, boat trips are available by prior arrangement but guests should enquire well in advance of their visit. The area is renowned for spectacular scenery and is beloved of photographers and artists. There are many amazingly scenic walks that can be made from the house or just a short drive away. There are two rooms for guests at Coruisk House, each with views over towards the Sleat peninsula. Each room has a king size bed (one is a four poster), en-suite shower room and tea and coffee making facilities. The rooms are tastefully furnished, the beds have soft pillows and duck down duvets and the towels are fluffy! There is a cosy residents lounge with wood-burning stove and comfortable sofas to enjoy afternoon tea or a dram from a selection of fine single malts available. There is a television in the lounge. The restaurant (also with an open fire) serves lunch and dinner by prior reservation (24 hours advance reservation) from March until October using local produce (with a focus on seafood and highland game, although catering to specific dietary requirements with prior notice). Fresh shellfish is available having been landed daily (weather permitting) by the fishermen who leave Elgol Harbour early every morning throughout the year. Iain prepares delicious food with close attention to detail and will cater to guests specific requests if at all possible. Clare makes fresh bread daily for guests to enjoy. Afternoon tea is also available for all residents of Coruisk House. Iain and Clare greet all their guests with a warm welcome and make sure that their stay is relaxing and enjoyable in a truly stunning location. ... more less
