Hotel Blog Watch: Isle of Eriksa

August 23, 2006 at 4:22 PM | by | ()

Joining the ranks of hotel bloggers is the Isle of Eriska blog for The Eriska Hotel.

The hotel is a Baronial house located on this little island on the West Coast of Scotland. The place is beyond private with over 300 acres for the use of guests. Started up in 1973 by the Buchanan-Smith family, the place is now run by prodigal son, Beppo Buchanan-Smith, who also does the blogging.

The posts range from the mundane (what the weather is actually like versus what the weather reports predicted), to the upkeep on the hotel grounds to the latest word on Beppo's brother Chay and his golf swing.

The blog is very similar to our fair lassie Lorna Jay who blogs about the Spread Eagle hotel in Scotland, except we just might prefer Lorna's knitting club updates to posts about "Scottish Wildlife":

Over the years we have seen many wonderful sights and many photographs of the beasts but last week one of our guests though he was seeing double as he leaned out of his bedroom window to snap the badgers below as not 2 or 3 but 4 badgers had appeared. Obviously either the whisky is improving or the equity rates are increasing!!
