Vanessa Branson and Robert Devereux both have extensive experience as hoteliers and have created a retreat that combines the luxury of a boutique hotel and the charm of a family holiday home. The house sleeps up to 20 and is surrounded by our magical island nature reserve. The house is the perfect destination for family events, Christmas and New Year parties, executive team building, well-being retreats and any special occasions or events. Visit for a weekend break or a longer holiday and experience life as a laird.
The classic Scottish façade of Eilean Shona House conceals a wealth of entertaining and living space. The interiors are comfortable and quirky rather than traditional and formal. The house is heated by a solid wood boiler and a large wood burning stove, is insulated by its thick well built walls and, unlike many other Scottish country houses, there is always lashings of piping hot water.
The house has a large, very well equipped country style kitchen with three large pantries, a huge catering fridge, freezer and smaller day fridge, ice making machine, AGA and Smeg gas/electric cooker, super catering dish washer (wash and dry cycle 3 minutes), good quality knives, boards, dishes etc.
The library has a full size billiard table, dartboard, and large selection of board games plus a well stocked range of books to refer to and read during your stay.
The drawing room is light and comfortable with an open fire, sofas, a seated alcove with magnificent views of the loch, a grand piano and a selection of works from emerging international artists.
The dining room walls were painted by the celebrated Glaswegian artist Fred Pollock. The table sits up to 20 people but can also have a leaf or two removed for smaller parties.
There are 11 bedrooms in total: 7 double bedrooms, 3 twin bedrooms, 1 bunk room with two bunks (sleeping 4). Each bedroom has its own character with beds and artwork of note. Serving these bedrooms there are 6 bathrooms and 1 shower room.
All the bed linen, towels and robes are of the finest quality Egyptian cotton. The bunk room, one of the doubles and one of the twins are on the top floor – these bedrooms are comfortable but more suited to staff and children.
Wifi internet access is available throughout most of the house.
The house is available to rent for a minimum of three days and the costs depend on the size of the party.
For smaller parties of up to 14 guests (7 rooms) a minimum 3 day stay is £4500 with additional days charged at £1000 per day.
For larger parties up to 20 guests, the minimum 3 day stay is £6000 with additional days charged at £1333 per day
