An enchanting, privately owned hotel of unique charm and character, where time appears to stand still. Nestled in a picturesque bay in the south of Skye, with beautiful views over the Sound of Sleat and the distant hills of Knoydart.
Come “over the sea to Skye” to historic Eilean Iarmain where, in 1746, Flora MacDonald was taken captive and sent to the Tower of London for helping Bonnie Prince Charlie evade government troops after the Battle of Culloden.
Following the government announcement of Friday 20th March, it was with a deep sense of sadness that we closed the doors at Hotel Eilean Iarmain. The safety and wellbeing of our staff, our guests and our local communities are of paramount importance and it is our responsibility to ensure the necessary safeguards at this difficult time.
We will continue to take the advice of Public Health Scotland, and will keep you updated.
Our reservations office remains open and we will be more than happy to discuss any future travel plans that you might have, including the rescheduling of existing reservations during this closure period.
We are making contact with all our guests who have reservations booked in April and May. If you have a booking, please do not hesitate to be in touch with us.
We would be very happy to make arrangements for you to reschedule your visit, rather than to have to cancel. Please rest assured, we will do our very best to achieve the most satisfactory arrangement for you.
We are, as always, grateful for all your support and honoured that Eilean Iarmain is the place that you and your families choose to spend your quality time.
We hope to see you all soon, and we look forward to offering you a very warm welcome when we reopen.
In the meantime we wish everyone the very best to get through these difficult times.

Beautiful room overlooking the bay, stunning views and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming.
Quaint hotel, the staff are exceptionally friendly and the service was second to none.
I only wish I could’ve spent longer here. As soon as I walked in the door you could feel the warm, welcoming, friendly atmosphere.
