Visit the Isle of Eriska Spa and Restaurant
The very special Isle of Eriska Hotel stands on its very own island and is open to non residents for a spa experience including swimming pool, a round of golf and/or a meal in the Deck Restaurant or Michelin starred hotel restaurant. Only a 25 minute drive from Barriemore Guest House, this is highly recommended by us!
