The Walk of Nature

Sunset Walk

Eriska is surrounded with magnificent mountains with several Munros within sight of the front door giving a sense of peace and quiet when strolling around the island. Alternatively if you are looking for leisurely strolls there are plentiful walks within a short distance of Eriska whether it be the circular walk round the Island of Kerrera or the energetic climb up Ben Cruachan, the office at the hotel can offer guidance.

The Easy One

Mainly flat, and will not require much preparation. You can walk down to the pier, across the golf course, or past the driving range, walking towards the west side of the island. Terrain is mainly flat with accessible paths.

The Moderate One

The moderate option would take you down to the heronry, back up to the cairn and down the path above the hotel.

The Scrambly One

Takes you along the shoreline on the west side of the island and down towards Mrs B's house. For this walk, keep an eye on the tides!
