When you think of the perfect places to spend Valentine’s Day in the United Kingdom, staying on a private island would probably not be one of the first thoughts popping into your head. Many of us presume that we’re restricted to the mainland and this is far from the truth.

There is a good number of private islands located around the UK,  officially there are 97 private Scottish islands, 19 more off England and six off Wales. One of the most-lauded of these is Eriska, a private island owned by the Buchanan-Smiths at the entrance to Loch Creran on the west coast of Scotland.

Eriska stands out due to its picturesque setting making it an ideal place to spend the most romantic night of the year and it is not only Luxurious Magazine thinking this. The Sunday Times referred to it as the ‘The Most Romantic Hotel in Britain’ and the Sunday Times were no less flattering by describing it as ‘One of the Most Romantic Hotels in the UK’

What’s on the menu at the Isle of Eriska Hotel for Valentine’s Day?
Throughout February, The Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa and Island will be giving love-birds the chance to fly away to their own private island for an unforgettable Valentine’s experience, celebrating the most romantic holiday of the year with a whole month dedicated to love.

During their stay, kindred spirits, looking for adventure, can wile away the hours exploring the untouched beaches and extensive nature trails of the island, spotting all the wildlife the island has to offer; from wild otters, badgers, to seals, herons and red deer.

The awe-inspiring natural beauty will make lovers fall in love all over again as they look out at the breathtaking sea views over Loch Linnhe and watch the sunset on the horizon.

Soul mates can get extra pampering at the Stables Spa’s couples’ suites, where partners can get simultaneous relaxing massages and soak up each other’s company in the statement bathtubs big enough for two.


The Valentines package includes a two-night stay with breakfast in a luxury bedroom at the 18th century Baronial hall and an ESPA back, neck and shoulder massage at the Island’s luxurious spa. Plus, a sumptuous four-course dinner for two in the Michelin-starred restaurant accompanied with a celebratory bottle of champagne each night.
