Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Eilean Iarmain

Off A851, Isleornsay, Highland, IV43 8QR, Scotland

Built on a small peninsula dotted by a quiet lighthouse, this hotel has an unforgettable location and an enchanting collection of wood paneling, chintz fabrics, and country-style antiques. The mix-and-match furniture in the rooms has genuine charm, although the newer pine bathrooms are less successful. The menu in the restaurant changes daily, and the bar serves inexpensive fare to locals and travelers alike. There's an art gallery and whisky shop on the premises, with a warming dram to welcome you to your room.
