You follow the road for 13 miles of single track road through magnificent landscapes - down the glen around the loch, past Blaven ("Blue Mountain") and around the hills to Elgol. Our chic little restaurant with rooms is waiting for you near the end of the track. Our home has a cool rustic style and Iain's ambrosial food flies from the kitchen. A glass of prosecco is yours on arrival ...with cake if you would like...... The breakfast room runs along the front of the house with a string of windows that frame the view. Lime-washed walls, up-cycled and antique furniture, vintage design fabrics, a large day-bed in front of a fire.... Our airy rooms have big beds, mohair throws, white linen, robes in quirky bathrooms, slipper baths in The Steading... You can dine in our restaurant where a wood-burner keeps things cosy; lobster bisque with three breads and smoked tomato butter, sole and squat lobsters with sauce champenoise, venison musselburgh and fillet with pear and thyme crumble, ginger steamed pudding with cardamom ice cream, an assiette of delicious desserts, handpicked wines from around the world, an array of single malt whiskies, Highland gins. Drop down 2km to Elgol harbour, where Bonnie Prince Charlie fled for his life, and gaze upon the mighty Cuillin rising from the sea. Stags roam the hills, otters can be seen on the shores, eagles soar in the skies and boat trips to Loch Coruisk and the beautiful Small Isles of Rum and Canna can be arranged after a sumptuous breakfast of home baking.... Heaven.
Bed and Breakfast Tariffs
Our bed and breakfast tariffs set out on our website do not include the cost of dinner. Please note that the price is per room and not per person. For bookings where all of our rooms are reserved, a higher bed and breakfast tariff will apply to allow us to bring in additional staff to accommodate and serve a larger group at one time. Please contact us for details. There is a maximum occupancy of two people per bedroom (only the Upper Steading Suite as advertised can accommodate two, three or four people with the number expressly given at the time of reservation). The use of our bedrooms, suites and en-suite shower and bathroom facilities are for the exclusive use of the occupants in whose name the reservation is made. Friends, family and other non-resident guests associated with resident house guests are welcome to use the common areas in Coruisk House itself, available to restaurant guests, but not the residents’ sitting rooms, bedrooms, suites and their en-suite facilities.
Tariffs and prices for Coruisk House set out on third party websites and in third party publications will not be correct and the only tariffs that apply to a stay and dinner at Coruisk House are those set out on our website and in our literature.
The cream iron bed bedroom has a low ceiling (5 feet and five inches in height) between the room and the en-suite shower room and is therefore not suitable for guests with restricted mobility.
We are sorry but we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 14 years in the rooms.
We have one dog friendly suite. One well-behaved dog is welcome by prior arrangement and if our dog friendly suite is available. We have three labrador on site at Coruisk House.
Our labrador dogs live in the house and will have access to some of the common areas of the house (the conservatory and dining room). We do suggest that our premises are not suitable for guests who do not like dogs.

Room Reservation Terms
In order to allow us to ensure the safety of our guests there may be occasions in the current COVID 19 crisis where we have to ask guests to take an alternative accommodation to that reserved and we reserve the right to do so.
We ask for payment of the entire cost of accommodation at the time of reservation and a reservation is only confirmed on our receipt of the funds and an email from us confirming the reservation.
We take most debit or credit card details by telephone (long number, expiry date and CVV code). Unfortunately we cannot accept American Express cards. Please do not send card details by email as it is not secure to do so and we cannot accept card details sent by email.
The completion and submission of a Contact Us form on our website does not constitute a reservation. An email from us enclosing the completed Contact Us form does not constitute a reservation and acts simply as a record of your enquiry and request.
A reservation is only complete following our receipt of funds equal to the cost of the entire stay at Coruisk House and upon your receipt of our email confirming your reservation. We are not able to hold rooms pending receipt of payment of the accommodation.
