It was our pleasure to recently host Rosie Morton of Scottish Field magazine at Hotel Eilean Iarmain. Rosie was a wonderful guest who, like so many, was captivated by Eilean Iarmain’s location, charm, friendly staff, good food and all those extra activities we can offer guests – from tastings sessions of our award-winning Gaelic Whiskies and Gaelic Gins to unique insights into this special part of Skye with Scott MacKenzie, our headkeeper.
You can read Rosie’s feature on the link below, and if it inspires you to book your own Skye Staycation, or any of our activities, please be in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org | 01471 833 332

Marianne Worthy. Born in Dumfriesshire but I now live in the Highlands of Scotland close to the Isle of Skye. The moods of the seasons and the weather are the inspirations for my paintings. I love to experiment and try new techniques and so I paint using Acrylics, Inks and Pastels with mixed mediums.
If you look at my website you will see the variety of my work. Please contact me if you would like to see any of my paintings framed and also if you have any questions. www.worthyart.co.uk
We look forward to welcoming you to our idyllic corner of the Isle of Skye! In advance of your visit we would like to provide you with some helpful information…

With Gallery An Talla Dearg having been closed all year, we have missed all of our artists. It’s always lovely to catch a five minute blether with them as we all go about our day at Eilean Iarmain. We have been featuring each artist both here on our website, and on our Facebook page, throughout the summer and we hope you have enjoyed seeing their work and learning a little about them and their inspirations and influences.
Pam Carter would have been exhibiting between 18th July and 7th September. Her arrival and opening always creates a buzz and we have really missed her this year. However, Pam has set up her own online exhibition called The Skye Exhibition 2020 and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have:
I am inspired to paint by the wildlife and landscape of Scotland. My subjects vary from the wilds of the Hebrides to quiet corners of the garden, I hope my work captures the essence of the natural world.
In the field I paint colour studies, take photographs and just quietly observe. I then take time to think about how a composition can be developed that reflects what I have seen, generally this is a slow evolution, although sometimes the whole picture comes in a moment. Having carefully planned a new work I often find that once I have started the painting will lead me in unexpected directions. I paint with commonly used materials and a traditional palette of oil colours. My work is representational but I’m not trying for photographic detail, I try to evoke the feeling of the moment either seen or imagined. It’s all about light transmitted and reflected and never more so than when painting water, a subject I come back to time and time again as I have always had connections with the sea.
I live in Kyle of Lochalsh with wonderful scenery and wildlife awaiting in whichever direction I set off.
