The Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa and Island

The mansion was originally constructed in the nineteenth century, at the height of Scottish Baronial Style, by the French architect Hippolyte Blanc, renowned for his meticulous degree of detail. Although the house was built in one go, in 1884, it was designed to look as if it was the end result of a series of additions over centuries. Typical of this style, the house has a massive stone entrance to the hall with an oak staircase, opposite a wood fire. The library, drawing room and hall, are heavily oak panelled.

Eriska is a flat, tidal island at the entrance to Loch Creran on the west coast of Scotland. Privately owned, the 300 acres island is largely of schist and slate with wooded grounds and rugged beaches. There is also a partly submerged Crannog, or fortified dwelling, dating from the Bronze Age around 200 B.C.
