We ate here as part of staying elsewhere in Elgol and wished we had stayed here also. We dined as part of our Skye Trail/Cuillin journey and this provided a slice of tranquility after a long wet day walking from Sligachan. The menu was beautifully thought through with an excellent wine selection. The locally sourced ingredients were combined into beautifully...

It was a luxurious treat to stay here for 2 nights on our holiday. Everything is of the highest quality ...the rooms and house are beautifully decorated with a lovely sitting room to relax in after dining. Iain's food was simply amazing, tasted the loveliest wine thanks to Clare's knowledge and we were made to feel very welcome and looked...

The best I can say is that on the last of our four nights at Coruisk House we spent quite some time working out how soon we could come back, and how we could get there more directly. Clare and Iain are wonderful hosts, and I'd have to describe Coruisk House as more of a two bedroom Five Star hotel...

Can't really add much to the reviews already written. Best B&B I've ever stayed in. Lovely in every sense of the word. Excellent hosts, fabulous food, comfy room and bed. We stayed for two nights, which is about as long as I would care to stay, only because it's so remote, unless you're a dedicated hill walker. The boat trip...

We spent four days and nights at Coruisk House and would number them amongst the very best of any nights in any hotel anywhere in the world. The homely decor with practical, period furniture does not prepare visitors for the sheer brilliance of the whole place - the welcome, the comfort and the cuisine. Clare and Iain are the most...

We spent 7 days travelling the Highlands and Islands. Skye was the highlight and Coruisk House was by far both the best accomodation and restaurant of a holiday where there was some serious competition. We were warmly greeted on arrival by Clare who instantly made us feel welcome, offering much-needed shortcake and hot tea after a stunning drive up the...

Coruisk House is 14 miles along a single track road to Elgol, the scenery on the journey there is breathtaking and a photographers dream.

Claire patiently answered all my husbands questions about weather, waterfalls, best scenery etc....

We didn't expect elgol to be such a detour and while we were going there on this tiny road (a lot of them in scotland but not in Canada...), we were each telling ourselves " I hope it is worth it"...

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
