Eilean Iarmain Hotel

is also known as Isle Ornsay Hotel, and is one of the fine 3-Star Isle of Skye Hotels located at a sheltered bay with views across the Sound of Sleat to the Knoydart hills. The authentic Scottish feel has been preserved thanks to tartan carpets, and period decor. The Birlinn 2AA Rosette restaurant offers a wide selection of fine dining dishes. The hotel is decorated with traditional furnishings and linens.

The reception rooms feature log fires and the dining room is wood paneled, which gives it a warm appeal. Have a lovely candlelit dinner at the Birlinn 2AA Rosette restaurant, and enjoy overlooking the bay and the island of Ornsay.  There are a wide variety of local seafood and game selections on the menu, which has 5 or more selections for each course.

The Praban bar offers a decent selection of bottled and draught beer, which of course must include the local real ale and a proper selection of malt whiskies from across Scotland.  The bar often has themed food evenings and regular ceilidh nights with some traditional Gaelic song and Scottish music. Hotel prices range from £50.00 to £80.00 per person, per night, for a Standard Room up to the Suites, which run from £85.00 to £125.00.

Be sure to call first for reservations and price confirmation. Fearann Eilean Iarmain, the name of the estate where the hotel is located, was originally a portion of the ancient Macdonald property (23,000 acres from Sleat to Strath in southern Skye).  It is an area of great natural beauty which has moorland, woodlands, hills and seashore.  Bird life is plentiful, and a wide variety of plants and wild flowers thrive here.

This area is known as Lios an Eilein, or The Garden of Skye and is famous for its geology. Arguably one of the most underrated 3-Star Isle of Skye Hotels, Eilean Iarmain is sure to please.
