With stunning views overlooking Loch Linnhe and the Morvern Mountains, The Isle of Eriska is located at the mouth of Loch Creran in the heart of West Argyll. We are approximately 12 miles north of Oban and 40 miles south of Fort William. 

We are best reached by car and train (Connel Ferry train station is 6 miles away) with the closest airports being Glasgow International (90 miles) and Edinburgh International (110 miles).

From Inverness, follow the A82 South to Fort William. 

From Fort William take the A82 South towards Glasgow.  At Ballachulish you will come to a roundabout, take the first left following the signs for Oban A828.  Approximately 10 miles after Appin you will see a sign for the hotel on the left hand side, please turn right after this sign.  Follow the single track for 3 miles until you reach the entrance to the hotel.

Just after the Green Welly Shop take the first left following signs for Oban A85.  When you reach Connel turn left and drive OVER the Connel Bridge until you reach a small village called Benderloch.  Follow the brown sign on the left for the Isle of Eriska Hotel.
