Eroda is the place everyone should be visiting this December. Full of natural beauty the Isle of Eroda is made up stunning views of the breathtaking cliffs that drop straight down to the sea, many residents have the enviable opportunity to look upon the gorgeous scenery on daily basis from the dining table in their homes.
Visitors to the island can also take in the stunning scenery from The Fisherman’s pub located on the corner of Cherry Street and Golden Way. The pub serves up casual food, including the highly recommended Fish and Chips, which you can wash down with a pint of the local brew.
Similarly you can visit Sally’s Tavern a relaxed bar and eatery, that much like everywhere you visit, treat people with kindness. Those with a strong stomach can try the restaurant’s homemade hot sauce which has been a staple at there for over four generations.
Eroda has a whole lot of history that is so embedded in daily life as the ruins of many structures from the past remain standing across the land.
Most people on the island can trace their heritage back numerous generations and still live in the same houses built by their ancestors. In a clear sign of the times, the island’s art scene has recently started to develop with Kiernan Studios offering classes. She can teach you the basics of drawing, sculpture, painting – watercolour & acrylic – and more! Whether you are a beginner or an experienced painter, Kiernan has a class for you

The shortest from the North to the Southside of the island, the shortest trail taking just 45 minutes while the longest can take three hours. An extra special time to do a trial is if the sun is rising as the whole isle just lights up.
For those the history lovers who pay a visit to Eroda, no visit is complete if you don’t go to Montgomery Maclean Castle the premiere historical landmark of Eroda. This 13th Century relic is a must-see for all tourists looking to learn more about Eroda’s rich history.
