LOCH ERISORT LANDSCAPE
Surrounded by traditional croft land and with views over Loch Erisort, the house offers a peaceful and tranquil setting, with minimal light and noise pollution, ensuring a relaxing stay and is ideally situated for exploring all that the island has to offer.
Sea Eagles have been seen here from May this year and as they are nesting nearby, they can make guest appearances at both breakfast and evening meal times.
The North facing rooms have amazing views of the Loch Erisort the town of Balallan and surrounding traditional croft land, including lazy beds and black houses.
The South facing rooms at the front look over the Eishken hills where stags and herds of deer are often spotted in the mornings & evenings.
It is especially well located for a chance to experience the Northern Lights, considering the very low impact of light and noise pollution. Photographers come from far and wide to capture the mesmerising phenomena that is locally known as the Aurora and you can see on Facebook the amount of photographs taken by local crofters and late night dog walkers! To see the photographs is really amazing, but to encounter it for myself, it was a moving, spiritual moment for me.
Whether you believe in angels, faeries or science, it is on many ‘bucket lists’ and is a truly sensational and extremely significant life experience.
Rainbows are a regular treat on the island, we have witnessed the beauty of a rainbow over the hotel on more days than I can remember, so you can expect to see one or two when you visit, as the Scottish Islands are one of the top five places to see rainbows in the UK.
