Enchanting hotel on the Isle of Skye with Table d’Hôte dining in the heart of the highlands.
The most beautiful spot on Skye. At the end of the road, in a whitewashed hamlet, almost paddling in the Sound of Sleat. Mountains rise, the sea sparkles, the odd fishing boat potters by with deep peace in a magical landscape. Warm Hebridean interiors, an atmospheric restaurant for lovely food with hand-dived Scallops, Highland Venison, traditional Scottish Cranachan with fresh raspberries.
Eilean Iarmain is a 19th century traditional hotel, comprising four suites and 12 bedrooms, charming and uniquely decorated. Cosy up by the open fires, try one of our Gaelic Whiskies in Am Praban bar, bustling with good cheer and traditional music, or enjoy a more formal dining experience in the wood-panelled dining-room and brasserie, Birlinn.
People have been coming here for over a hundred years, drawn by a love for the beautiful landscapes and seascapes of this Hebridean island, its geology, botany, ornithology, its rich Celtic history, culture and language. Nearby is the Gaelic University of Scotland, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, founded by the late Sir Iain Noble. It is the premier institute of Gaelic learning, music and tradition, where a variety of summer courses, as well as musical events, are held for visitors.
Eilean Iarmain was once the busiest port in the south of Skye, with puffers coming in to the old stone pier. The traditional buildings tell the history of the place and its people. The old stables of the original inn are now converted into charming suites.
Located next to the hotel you will find ‘Praban na Linne’, the Gaelic term for ‘the illicit still, on the Sound of Sleat’, where you can enjoy a free tasting of the award-winning Gaelic whiskies and purchase a bottle to take home! Adjoining is Flòraidh, a boutique shop stocking fashions in traditional tweed, luxurious Scottish cashmere, unique printed silk as well as handmade local crafts. You won’t have to go any further for your souvenirs and gifts!
