about us

The Spoons Luxury Self Catering Escape is a beautiful, luxurious escape for just 2 guests, situated on a working croft on the Isle of Skye. In 2017, after an extensive refurbishment, Marie & Ian Lewis have created stunning accommodation in a private wing of their home.

A brief history

Ian and Marie Lewis completed building The Spoons in 2009, after a two year self build, during which time Ian built while Marie worked at the Three Chimneys. Prior to that they lived on and managed the private island estate of Eilean Shona, off the coast of Ardnamurchan. There they ran the luxurious Eilean Shona House for 12 years, looking after up to 20 guests.

In 2009 The Spoons opened as a 5 Gold Star luxury Bed & Breakfast and for 8 busy seasons Ian and Marie enjoyed meeting and welcoming lovely guests, from all over the World, into their home. 

After 22 years in hospitality Marie & Ian have closed the B&B and downsized to The Spoons Luxury Self Catering.

Marie is now working as the Creative Director for SEALL, a performing arts promotion charity for Skye and Raasay and she continues to enjoy looking after The Spoons and its guests. Ian works at Dunvegan Castle and MacLeod Estates as the Estate Foreman.

Ian and Marie pride themselves on attention to detail. They are committed to ensure that their guests are well looked after and that their needs and expectations are met.
