Bothy life is quiet. Slow. It's about enjoying the time it takes to do the simplest things. It's one space with all you need - a bed above, space to stretch out and live in below. A kitchen, wood stove, table, library snug & cosy armchair.
Tucked high under the magnificent cliffs of Cleadale, Sweeney's Bothy is just you, amazing views and your own cosy off-off grid eco-cabin. Sweeney's Bothy has been created as an artists' residency space, but it available to the general public for six months of the year to enjoy a uniquely special holiday experience. What to Bring Walking shoes/boots or, especially in the winter, wellies! Slippers for wearing indoors Waterproofs, torch or head-torch Sunscreen & midge repellent in the summer And anything that you'll enjoy while having a very relaxed and off-grid, off-line break in the beautiful peace and quiet.
Sweeney's Bothy is in the crofting community of Cleadale on the Isle of Eigg. Eigg is a special place. Community owned, renewably powered, with a growing and active community committed to the island they love. Eigg does things in its own time. With beaches, hills, wildlife and rich history and heritage, there's always something to do. Or you could just sit back, read a book, enjoy the view and relax.
  • What an amazing place! Both Lucy & Eddie were lovely hosts, very helpful and friendly. The bothy was incredible, so much so we are already planning our next trip here. A very relaxing and peaceful place yet with plenty to do. We particularly enjoyed the outside shower and watching the stunning views of the sea and the mountains of Rum whilst staying cosy by the fire.

  • Enchanting. We stayed a week, but could have easily stayed longer. It was a very memorable bothy and location. It's hard to describe quite how special it is.

    Christopher2017-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely 3 night stay at Sweeny's Bothy; a comfortable and quirky place with everything necessary to make a trip to Eigg feel truly special! Our expectations were definitely surpassed. Lucy and Eddie have a quiet and relaxing place which allows you to feel at home in the wilderness. They were great in helping us to navigate the island and organise anything we needed for our short stay. Eddie even welcomed us to tuck into his home-grown vegetable garden- a real treat! We were certainly never short of something to do, whether it was riding our rented mountain bikes down dirt tracks, exploring local caves and beaches, cooking up dinner on the fantastic wood burning stove or simply admiring the beautiful view. Would definitely recommend a visit to anyone looking for a bit of adventure and quiet time.

  • Our stay at Sweeney's Bothy was nothing short of perfection. One of our best trips ever and this was largely to the kindness and friendliness of our hosts, Lucy and Eddie. Our arrival stay and departure were effortless as we were picked up and dropped off, any little question was answered and they made themselves available when we needed them, be it to find eggs, find out about a restaurant or a walking route. The actual bothy is amazing, anything you might need is there, if its not, you dont need it. Its clean, has stunning views, quiet and just a joy to be in, the island is magical and so is the people in it. We are already looking at out calendars to book our next stay here.

    Maite2015-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • A must visit for everyone, beautiful, bespoke and better than home, with fantastic hosts to boot. Can't wait to go back.

    Luke2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Lucy and Eddie for a wonderful stay. You made us feel extremely welcome and were very helpful and kind before and during the stay- great to meet you both. The bothy was a joy to spend time in: very warm, cleverly designed, with wonderful views and added extras- outdoor shower and stove with oven for a start! Felt like we could have spent much longer on the island and would love to return at some point in the future. An idilic island escape!

    Cicely2016-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lucy is very helpful and went out of her way to accommodate us. The bothy is beautiful and a pleasure to spend time in. Thank you Lucy for an easy and enjoyable stay over the new year!

    Eileen2018-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lucy and Eddie are fantastic hosts. - warm, friendly, helpful. Bothy and views are just as seen in photos, but even more beautiful. Correspondence with Lucy by email was always quick and helpful. Bothy was cosy, peaceful, stunning views. A fantastic way to enjoy eigg!

    “Tobar nan Iasgair” means “Well of the fisherman”, for centuries, fishing boats would anchor here to fill up with fresh water. Bill who built the house for himself and his wife Doranne, was also a fisherman! It’s a cosy, spacious family home, with wonderful views across loch Linnhie, Benderloch, Ben Cruachan, and to the ferry and Island's comings and goings. Extra's a fold down bed, a bed settee, a travel cot, There is also a TV, Wi-Fi, a well equipped kitchen, a sun porch, and a garden area.
    My place is ideal for couples, families, or groups of friends. There is a standard double in one room and twin beds in the other room. There are some steps into the house from the porch, at the back door there are 2 steps. Once inside there is level access to all the rooms. The kitchen has many family items as it isn't only a "holiday home"
    The house has the most amazing views, the ferry arrives just in front of the house so you can sit and watch the comings and goings, sheep going to market, the post van collecting mail, people going shopping. 2.5 km inland,The local shop and post office is a "must" the hub of the island, it is very well stocked. Another 1km from the shop miles further inland there is the cafe,library, museum and heritage centre. The Church of St Moluag, is a further 1km,Moluag settled on Lismore around 562, having trained at Bennnchar, modern day Bangor, The ferry leaves almost from the house and takes you straight into Oban, this is a fun thriving port with lovely scenery, pubs, cafe's bars shops etc Or take the ferry at the other end, go to Port Appin and have a meal in the Pier house hotel world famous for its seafood.

Ski at Glencoe or the Nevis range, hike over "the devils staircase," visit Glencoe and find the secret valley, climb Ben Nevis
  • The house is very quiet and quaint. Check In was very easy and Frances was a very nice host. Fully recommended.

    Henning2017-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cottage big on a very beautiful Island. Frances kindly picked us up at the Appin port. I recommend you this location for a great and quiet nature stay.

    Joseph2018-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Frances was brilliant and very friendly. We were met when we came off the ferry and immediately made to feel very welcome in the house. We loved sitting on the bench looking at the view in the morning and stars at night. We will be back!

    Liene2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay. Frances' house was cosy and very well equipped. Being a minute away from the ferry port was extremely handy and meant we were able to enjoy the island without a car. We will definitely be back.

    Billie2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage right next to the ferry! This island is a little paradise with lots of walking! We had such a wonderful time at Frances’ cottage! Frances was very nice, she made sure to visit us even though we were late. She also gave us great recommendations.

    Janie2018-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Absolute diamond. Stunning views and such a tranquil calming place. we booked for one night but ended up staying for two. We loved it so much, i could have stayed longer had work commitments not stood in my way. I will definetly be back. I toured around Scotland for a few days with the hubby and another couple and looked to stay in Oban, fortunetly for us this place popped up and whilst I was cautious of the ferry crossing we decided to book. what a result!!! This Island is magical and the house was perfect for our needs. the kitchen is very well equiped with everything you need to russtle up a tasty meal, the beds were comfortable and the views from the bedrooms and super large lounge are amazing. I am an Airbnb host myself so I can be a little critical. Read the listing fully and you will find that this house was the property of the Hosts parents and is undergoing a refurbishment project. Dont be confused as the host also lets a private room in her own house. you get the whole house and it has large rooms and is very spacious. Just to point out the local shop closes at six so bring your essentials with you if arriving on the last Ferry. the cost for the ferry from Oban was £5.60 each person return and takes around 55mins. very beautiful views on the crossing too. Frances met us at the tiny Port and walked us to the property. The house is the first from the tiny port and overlooks the stunning Loch. I could have stayed here forever. After rushing around touring Scotland this was the perfect place to stay. We had intended travelling down the west coast the following day but when we woke in the morning to start packing and saw the amazing sunrise over the Loch we all just looked at each other and said WHY? So we stayed another night. Thanks Frances for a great bolt hole. We were all glad we didnt stay in Oban. Lismore and your place are perfect. This is my new getaway from the hustle and bustle place. Many thanks. Frances stayed and had a chat with us explaining all about her ongoing refurbishment of the house and I cant wait to come back next year.

    Debbie2017-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place to stay - the most fantastic views, in a house that felt like a home, not somewhere to stay. Lismore is a gem of a place - long walks, places to run, wildlife, nature and friendliness in abundance. Highly recommended. Thanks Frances!

    Steve2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really great time at Frances's place on Lismore. If you want to get away from it all and are looking for a chilled out wee island with beautiful nature, Lismore is the place to go. There are some lovely walks and you don't need a car to experience the beauty and tranquility of the island. The house is charming and has a sun porch where you can sit and watch the tides come and go, the views are absolutely stunning. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a s/c trip, and the bed is so comfy. Everything is clean. France's is a lovely, helpful and welcoming host and we would definitely recommend her place. We had mixed weather and would recommend good walking shoes or wellies for exploring off the main road.

    Our house sits in its own private, historical cove on the beautiful Hebridean island of Lismore. Secluded, quiet and peaceful, Port Moluag is within easy reach of the Scottish mainland whilst feeling totally removed from the pace and noise of city life. The house is newly-built using eco technologies to limit its environmental impact and is surrounded by wonderful wildlife such as seals, otters, and a multitude of birds as well as many sites of historical interest.
    The house provides stylish, comfortable accommodation for up to three guests including a spacious walk-in shower and steam room, perfect for relaxing after a day's exploring the island on foot or by bicycle. Lismore has a well-stocked shop and a selection of high quality local food producers who can help provide the culinary delights the fertile land and sea produce. Privacy and seclusion are yours once you go down the private track from the public road. More often than not wildlife will be the only creatures you will see within the cove. Lismore is an island community and is welcoming, friendly and varied. There are often community events at the public hall or excellent visitor centre and cafe where you can meet many of the locals.
    Lismore is the nearest of the Scottish Hebridean islands. It is full of history wildlife and Scottish tradition. With a population of just over 200, the island is restful and quiet. Port Moluag is a small cove, home to an 18th century boatyard and the remains of sixth century St Moluag's chapel. St Moluag was a Scottish missionary and a contemporary of St Columba. According to ancient lore, as St Moluag sailed towards Lismore he saw a boat containing St Columba making for the shore at highest speed. St Columba’s craft was the faster and when St Moluag saw that he was going to lose the race to be the first to bring Christianity to the island, he seized an axe, cut off his little finger and threw it on to the beach.
  • The house itself is stylish and spacious with everything you may need. The surroundings are breathtaking- even an amazing view from the loo. Spa style bathroom very nice. Would recommend. Don't miss out on cakes from Iris the co host at the Dutch bakery- we developed a habit - if you message her you can intercept the cake before it ever gets to the honesty box ;) We didn't see the otter but did spot seals and an eagle.

    Linzi2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place, love the simple zen style, with thoughtful design features. Loved the walk-in wet room shower and steam room that you can get to after a wet suited swim, without having to go through the house! Location is fantastic, a short walk to the ancient Tirefour Broch ruin, built in the Iron Age. Amazing views and wildlife! The island is a gem, great for exploring on bicycles. Nearby cafe and heritage centre, that sells local art and hand crafted mementos. On the drive up, we stopped at the Oban Ferry terminal yellow Fish Shop thats just round from the Seafood Hut, they filleted some fresh caught fish which we barbecued on the deck of the House, wow, what a start to a very peaceful holiday. The House had everything that we needed. The living room has a wood burning stove, but the eco friendly is so well designed we didn't need to light it. The spacious kitchen area, is very well equipped, it even has a BlueTooth Radio if you want to stream music from your smart phone. A very comfortable bedroom, warm and cozy with a view through the trees and out across the sound to the mainland. Sumptuous. What a wonderful place to stay, beyond expectations, thank you!

    Henry2018-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Port Moloug house is paradise! The pictures don’t do this place justice, it was the best place me and my husband have ever stayed in and we have travelled all over the world. The island is such a lovely friendly place, we enjoyed renting bikes and exploring. But most of all we enjoyed a much needed rest sitting and watching the tide move in and out, cooking in the well equipped kitchen or having a bbq on the balcony. From the bed you have a beautiful view of the water from the window in the can bathroom, which is also another stunning room. Thank you so much for a very memorable stay, we hope to come back in the future!

    Natasha2018-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a stunning house in a stunning location, hidden away on its own private bay with amazing views across the sound. (The first thing we saw when we got up was two otters swimming past the window.) The house is very stylish, with mid-century modern furniture, polished concrete floors and beautiful wooden panelling. And Lismore is a gem - full of interesting corners and perfect for exploring on foot or by bike. All in all, a perfect retreat - will definitely be back.

    Simon2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • The house is fantastically located and appointed. Smart modernist interiors and beautiful woodwork combine with an airy space that opens onto the sea (and some otter sightings, if your lucky!). Everything is beautifully appointed in the house and Iris sourced some lovely local veg and food, not to mention some delicious homemade cakes. The water is nice and fresh for a dip too. A fantastic space to relax in, and a lovely island.

    Kathryn2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Feel very lucky to have been able to stay in a place like this. Gorgeous design in a setting that’s even better than the photos, on a lovely island with great walks and friendly locals.

    Neil2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wunderschönes Haus an einem idyllischen Ort, direkt am Wasser gelegen. Ideal auch für Reisende ohne Auto. Taxidienst und Fahrradmiete wurde für uns organisiert. Vielfältiges Angebot im Lebensmittelshop, so dass man sich gut für eine Weile auf die Insel zurückziehen kann. Sehr zu empfehlen.

    Brita2018-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Everything we read in the reviews before we booked to stay at Port Moluag House was true! It is hard to decide what we loved the most; the location, the peace and quiet, the extremely stylish decor, the comfort, the spacious and environmentally responsible building....all exceeded our highest expectations. Time stood still for the few days we stayed here and we experienced true relaxation. Tip: the sausages and lamb leg steaks (grass fed/organic) from the farm beyond Salen tasted fantastic barbecued on the balcony as we watched the herons fishing on the shore below us. We would love to return!

    This is a truly remote location with access by boat only. An old crofthouse has been refurbished as a cosy off-grid studio for adventurous travellers on Scotland's west coast. It has outstanding views surrounded by wild and beautiful countryside. This is the only house on the secluded Loch na Droma Buidhe, there is no road and our nearest neighbour is 6 miles walk away.
    This is an 18th century crofthouse which has been refurbished as a studio apartment. It has its own kitchen and bathroom (bath only) and it's bright and warm with views out to the west. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge-freezer, a gas stove and all the pots, pans and crockery you should need. We supply the basics of flour, sugar, tea, coffee, oil, salt and pepper. This is the only property on Loch na Droma Buidhe. Our nearest neighbours are 6 miles walk away. The property is completely off-grid: water comes from the burn beside the property; heating is from a wood stove and we generate electricity from photovoltaics and a water turbine. We have a garden for fruit and vegetables and there is great fishing in the surrounding seas. There is no mobile phone reception here and no television or wifi in the coastal retreat. We have a cosy library (heated with a wood stove) with a great collection of books and board games as well as a cinema projector and a large selection of films for those days when it's just too dreich outside. Our family has been staying on Loch na Droma Buidhe since 1963 and we've gathered a fair amount of stuff in that time so we can help out with most things from extra towels and spare baked beans to tide times and recipes for razor clams.
    This is one of the most isolated and unspoilt places in Britain with fabulous views and abundant wildlife all around.
  • We had a great time! But if an adventure as we canoed there from Laga bay which added to the whole experience, Sally was very helpful and got everything we could of needed. A comfortable stay in a peaceful and untouched setting- amazing woodland walks and beach combing.

    Owen2016-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sally's cabin turned out to be one of the highlight of our trip throughout Scotland. The bothy itself was all one could hope for in so remote a location: warm, comfortable and welcoming. We enjoyed the scenic location all around and had a taste of what life can be like in the area, surrounded by nature, wild life and charming people like Sally. She was very helpful and provided us with detailed information on how to get to her place and we enjoyed our chats with her. A warm thank you to her, we cannot wait to come back!

    Chloé2016-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • This amazing gem of Sallys strikes a very tricky balance just perfectly- that of giving the guest the sense of being within the wilderness and the outdoors and that of providing enough comfort to retreat when the winds become too much. Nothing was too much trouble for Sally and she was open to having her door knocked on, and pulling on her head torch as it was required. The silence and peace wash over you in remarkable place and the life that Sally has carved out for herself there should be applauded- I just cant wait to go back.

    David2018-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful wee house with amazing views and great walks nearby. The house is rustic but cozy, with ample cooking equipment, jazz CDs, and comfy beds. Sally is a lovely host and shared delicious produce from her garden with us. We brought our dog and she had a great time as well. It was easy to arrange drop-off and pickup with Ardnamurchan charters and the boat ride there and back was beautiful. Would highly recommend for those looking for a quiet retreat off the beaten path!

    Eiren2018-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Sallys crofthouse for the weekend, it's a beautiful setting in a small Loch off a bigger Loch, very peaceful, extremely remote and pretty rustic. Would recommend to the adventurous.

    Zeke2016-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our two days of total peace in the most beautiful place in the world! This is a truly exceptional place to stay. We loved it.

    Lesley2017-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely stunning. Off the grid place if this is what you are looking for with all the comforts off home and amazing views. Sally is truly a brilliant host and a font of all knowledge. The home made bread was a delight. We will be back.

    Carl2018-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sally lives in an incredibly preserved area in Scotland you need to discover. Far from everything, just notice you will have a consequent extra cost to reach Sally's house by boat. You will find everything you need in the cottage, excepted a hot shower. Made for adventurers !

    Drimnin, Royaume-Uni

    Welcome to Gylen Park ! This is our second year on Airbnb and are delighted to be offering accommodation in our wonderful caravan / cabin, we call it "Galley Cabin" Situated on the remote end of Kerrera Island we are in the perfect spot to “get away” from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Our home is situated at the end of a road to know where. So if your looking to step out of the usual tourist traps then this is the place for you. Please read the full discription before booking. Thanks
    This is a 6.8 meter long by 2.4 meter wide (internal space) caravan that has undergone a transformation from a standard caravan to something much more comfortable and interesting, we have put in hundreds and hundreds of hours of work to create a space that we hope will satisfy all your needs while you are visiting this amazing island. This is not a modern luxury caravan, but if there is such a thing as “very comfortable rustic” then we hope to have achieved this. This caravan is perfectly suited to couples or single visitors or two friends who don't mind sharing one room with two beds. There is a heated shower room as shown in the photos, the electric shower is not a power shower as we do not have mains water pressure but its hot spacious and will do the job! We provide all the Towels you could need. The kitchen is equipped with two induction hobs, a modern microwave, toaster and full size fridge. There is of course a kettle and all the utensils and cooking equipment you could need. There is NOT a freezer but if required you can use our one in the house no problems. There is also NOT an oven but there is the microwave that i am told can do many magical things if you know how to use one….. there is an instruction manual. We provide free tea bags and ground coffee (there is a coffee plunger) sugar, salt, pepper and olive oil. There is an endless supply of wonderful fresh spring water from the tap ! The caravan has a double bed with freshly laundered linen, it comes with a double duvet and plenty of extra bedding if required. We can make up another single bed if required for an additional person. This is done by converting the small table and seating area as shown in the photos into a bed. There is a flushing toilet inside the caravan (see photos) and a wash hand basin and lighted vanity unit. There is a full size double sink with draining board, tea towels are provided. There is a spacious seating area and dinning table, there is another table and seating area if its not converted into a single bed. Heating is provided by two electric heaters, one is a large fan heater with an electric flame and will heat the place up quickly the other is a smaller heater with a thermostat that you can set to whatever temperature you like the room to be at while sleeping. There are blinds on all the windows, some a bit fiddly but work fine. There is hot water at the kitchen and hand sink and of course the shower. There is a huge amount of storage space in overhead cupboards and also a wardrobe for larger items. There is no telly vision and no TV reception at the caravan or on the property so bring a book ! Wifi is available but please be aware that we are at the very end of a long and very old phone line, wifi is slow but more than adequate for emails and simple web searching, streaming of movies is often slow and not worth the effort so download some before arriving. There is NO mobile reception at the caravan or around the house so you will get some peace from the constant chirping of phones, phone reception can be got by taking a short walk up a local hill. Outside there is a private seating area with fantastic views, we can provide a charcoal barbecue for an additional £8 this includes two small bags of fuel and a cleaning fee. Bring your own charcoal and there is only a £5 fee. Extra charcoal is £1.50 per small bag. The caravan is within our grounds (please see photos) we have tried to site it so that you have the best possible view out the main window and you also have an outdoor seating area that is somewhat hidden from the main house. We live in the main house with our two children and we have two small friendly dogs. We run a volunteer program and people from all over the world come and live with us and help to develop the gardens and look after the wild areas and tender the thousands of young trees we have planted. There can be up to four volunteers here and they stay in both the main house and the cottage, we also have a much more basic caravan that is also used by our volunteers. If you want to get involved with some volunteer work then just come and ask me and i will see if we have any work that you might find rewarding to be involved in. We have a really big garden with huge areas of cut grass and are slowly creating a network of tracks that one day will lead (you) our guests around this stunning property. The creation of the gardens and woodland is ongoing and the property reflects that with signs of activity all over the place, there are stockpiles of timber and stone in various locations ready for use and though unsightly now will one day be used to make the place even more beautiful and enjoyable for out future guests, so please ask if you want me to tell you how a pile of stone will unfold into one of my many dreams. You are welcome to explore the property, there is a huge pond area that has the beginnings of a track round it and we have some resident wild ducks. The creation of many wildlife areas has seen a massive increase in bird numbers as well as many more butterflies and bees feeding on the nectar of the many hundreds of flowers we have planted. The property is at the very end of a road to nowhere, so if you want to explore nowhere then its just outside the garden gate, walk out and get lost in this truly wild and beautiful place. The local landscape is like something straight out of lord of the rings, with many small beaches and jagged cliffs, there are ruins from forgotten times and deep dark woods, open grasslands and hidden lochs, babbling burns and secret caves…. Stunning views are round every corner, all in all if you love the wild outdoors then you will love it here. The island has a traffic exclusion policy this means you CANNOT bring your car across but have to LEAVE it parked on the mainland. We will pick you up from the ferry on the island side and drive you down to where we live. We will also drop you off at the ferry when you finish your stay with us. The carpark park on the mainland is in the middle of nowhere so you will need to bring all you need and though there is very little crime in these parts you should not leave valuables in your car. The ferry to the island costs £4.50 return per person, 5-15 years of age travel for £2 and under 5 travel free. PLEASE REMEMBER The last ferry is at 5.55pm from the mainland to the island you MUST not be late or you will miss the ferry and then you will need to find alternative accommodation at extra cost. So plan to arrive on time or better still and earlier ferry. You need to let us know what ferry you are arriving on at least 48 hrs in advance so that we can arrange to pick you up, failure to do this could mean that you have to walk the 2 miles to where we live. If you do miss your ferry please try and contact us and we will do all we can to come and get you, failing this leave your bags at the ferry port and walk down to us and we will go back and get your bags. Please see the ferry website for all sailings and information, type in in your internet browser Calmac And then in the search page write "kerrera" and you should find the info on sailings There are NO SHOPS on the island and only one cafe that is open 7 days a week but shuts a 4.30pm The Tea Garden / Cafe is shut from the end of September. The cafe serves food and drinks and is about 20 minutes walk from where we live. There are no pubs or any other amenities at this end of the island so bring all your must have items like beer and chocolate! Because of the nature of the property with ponds, cliffs and work related sites this is not a suitable environment for young children, we have two very young children but they have grown up around here and know how to stay safe. We have tried to provide all you need for your stay, we are on site nearly all the time so if you need something then we will endeavour to help you. We will pick you up with a large 4x4 so bring as much stuff as you like except the kitchen sink as its already here. Thanks for reading and i hope we see you soon. Check in time is from 3pm and check out is before 11am this gives us time to clean the caravan ready for the next guests. If we are not booked up then we can be more relaxed about these times. There are a few miles of hard surface tracks / roads on Kerrera but if you want to explore the best parts then you need to be prepared to go "Off Road" stout footware and rain jackets are advisable. We are in the process of of designing a shoe drying facility but in the interim we will be buying some wellington boots for people to use, we have some now but will hope to have a full range within the next few weeks A map of the island is on the wall. We will ask all our geusts about ideas to make the experience better for future visitors and will act on these ideas as soon as we can if it is possible and affordable. Thanks to our geusts so far for giving us some great ideas.
  • L’endroit de Collin est absolument incroyable, l’endroit est magnifique, presque magique. J’ai eu un vrai coup de cœur pour cette caravane emménagé comme un petit chalet en pleine nature. On y est enfin en paix, loin des touristes, et des circuits tout tracés. L’ile est un petit concentré de tout les paysages environnant. C’est endroit reposant où Collin a mis beaucoup d’attention et de détails autant dans les équipements que dans sa décoration . Il a même penser pantoufles écossaises pour les nuits froides ;) il y a tout ce qu’il faut pour y être heureux et se ressourcer pleinement. Ce petit bijoux est un vrai coup de cœur !

  • Don't think, book it. This is the best airbnb I've stayed in. Colin has put a huge amount of effort into creating what I am sure will be the best airbnb experience you will have. The location is easily accessible by public transport for the most part; you only have to get a short cab ride from Oban station to the kerrera ferry; and from there Colin will be waiting for you. Isle of Kerrera is stunning. You won't run out of things to explore here. The scenery is simply out of this world and is well worth the visit. Ask Colin for where the best places to go are, and he'll help you out. The caravan is incredible. It was built from scratch by Colin and you can see his passion in every inch. It is so well done that even when it was raining (it is Scotland after all), I was more than happy just to stay indoors. It is incredibly cosy, and the price is unbelievable. I can tell you all about it, but honestly, just go for it. Colin, his partner, and the volunteers on his property are just about the nicest people you will ever meet. You will have a great time.

  • Impressive place, the host is a generous and kind man. It's a "must do" booking. No doubt about it ;)

  • Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, Colin and Tina were lovely and everything was perfect. The cosy cabin was wonderful, everything you could need for a quiet stay was there. The island is beautiful, even in the rain.

  • We loved our stay - everything was perfect and we look forward to going back. It was the ideal place to get away and take a complete break. One of the most peaceful places we have ever been to.

  • Da es bereits genügend Bewertungen auf Englisch gibt, möchten wir an dieser Stelle eine auf Deutsch schreiben. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt bei Colin und Tina sehr genossen. Die Unterkunft ist mehr als sauber, luxuriös aufgebaut und wer auf der Suche nach Ruhe und Frieden ist, wird hier auf der Isle of Kerrera wirklich fündig. Die beiden verfolgen einen Traum und es macht richtig Spaß, für einen kurzen Zeitraum Teil dieses Traums zu sein. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder zurückkommen, um einen längeren Zeitraum bei den beiden zu verbringen und aus dem stressigen Alltag auszubrechen.

  • Colin's place on Kerrera is truly a unique and beautiful experience. Not only was the location of the galley cabin breathtakingly picturesque but the cabin itself was so comfortable with every possible amenity you could ever imagine needing for your stay on Kerrera. This place is truly off the beaten path, and if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of mainland Scotland and wander around an enchanting island on unparalleled hikes then this place is for you. Colin, Tina and the entire family there were so accommodating throughout our stay and made this one of our most special and memorable travel experiences to date. This place is truly a hidden gem, and anyone who finds themselves here will not regret a second of it.

  • Colin and his wife were very welcoming. The accommodation was very well equipped, with a wonderful view. Our stay was perfect!

    Carna Cottage, an original Scottish Highland Blackhouse providing a warm and comfortable well equipped cottage directly overlooking Loch Sunart. Here seals, otters, red deer & both white-tailed & golden eagles are frequently seen. 15 min boat transfers are included in the cost. Also included is a self drive boat for exclusive use throughout your stay. This is a wonderful and unique place to stay, sheltered from both the weather and the world.
    Carna Island visitors have the opportunity to be part of a unique experience on this conservation island. See the work going on to re-wild the island via managed grazing, restoring the meadow lands and promoting regeneration of native woodland. Endangered native Black Bees have been reintroduced after initial mowing has partially recovered the original meadows. Visit in spring and you will be amazed by the sights and scents of the wild flowers flourishing here. Carna is hosting ongoing research into both terrestrial and marine biodiversity. See seals, porpoises, eagles, and otters around the island. The ancient oak woodland is home to a myriad of birdlife, insects, rare lichens and mosses, whilst deserted homesteads nestle in sheltered spots around the island. Although Carna is only a mile long, our guests of 20 years still find new experiences. Take a look on YouTube at some brilliant short films taken on and around the island. Although heavily inhabited in the past Carna now has no full time residents, your only neighbours will be the guests in the other cottage. Carna cottage provides an ideal wildlife hide from all windows but is especially perfect from kitchen and the conservatory. Here you can shelter from Scottish west coast weather and the dreaded midges on those warm, still days. Carna cottage provides excellent value as transfers from our base on mainland Ardnamurchan take about 15 minutes each way and are included in the cost. Also included in the cottage price is a self drive boat for your exclusive use throughout your stay. The boat is a pioneer multi equipped with an outboard engine and all tuition, life jackets, safety equipment and fuel are included. There is a private pontoon for your use throughout your stay (also ideal for hours of fun catching crabs). For more boating information see our partner Ardnamurchan Charters. All linen, towels, heating and fuel are provided. There is a wood fired stove in the sitting room which also has a sofa bed. Hot water, lighting and electricity are via the island generator. This is a wonderful and unique place to stay, sheltered from both the weather and the world. The kitchen is well equipped for up to six guests with a gas cooker and fridge with small freezer.
    The island is an experience in itself, packed full of native wildlife such as otters, eagles, seals and red deer but it also provides a rare chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life in peace and seclusion with no mobiles, internet or TV to interfere with you. You can relax with just the sounds of the sea, the birds, the wind blowing gently through the heather and maybe the odd stag roaring at the right time of year. It's the perfect place to either get back to basics, find some head-space for yourself or spend real quality time with friends and family without the distractions and pressures you might find in other places. There's something to discover for everyone we believe, young and old, while we help you immerse yourselves in this wild part of Scotland's West Coast. You will likely have one set of neighbours some 400 meters away but you may have the island entirely to yourselves. There is zero crime on the island, no roads to worry about and lots of friendly wildlife to keep an eye on. Loch Sunart and Loch Teacuis are both stunningly beautiful places to explore by boat or foot with only a few other locals and the odd sailing yacht you might come across.
  • We stayed for a few days in July 2018 and can’t recommend this place highly enough. We wish we could have stayed for weeks on end - or even forever! The island is very large and with just two inhabited cottages you get a wonderful sense of seclusion. There isn’t a mobile signal except at the top of the hill which is a good thing and adds to the sense of being remote from the world. The wildlife is wonderful, we saw lots of seals, porpoises and even an eagle on two occasions and having your own boat to get around the island is wonderful. This place really is superb. Thank you so much for having us

  • This place and the Isle of Carna is truly amazing, It was so relaxing my Wife and I could have stayed there forever. Perfect for any nature lovers with or without children. I can't recommend this place enough. amazing!

  • Quality accommodation in a remote, beautiful and idyllic setting at one with nature. Everything and nothing - beauty in its simplest, most stunning form.

    Deborah2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely magical place to stay, and the freedom to take your own boat out and explore the area was the cherry on top. The cottage is as cosy and comfortable as you’d hope, and in a fine state of cleanliness for a place that will have housed its fair share of mucky hillwalkers etc. With patience and tuition from Barnaby the boat was easy to use and was great to get around in, try some fishing, and get to the more remote spots where you can get a good look at the island’s surprisingly curious and friendly cows. Exploring on-land was just as fun - the big hill in the middle of the island was a not-too-tough 30-40 minute climb with amazing views all round. While the island has no phone or internet signal (and what a blessing), the top 20 metres of the hill had perfect signal and 4G in case you do have any need. The owners were perfect hosts with all the tips for you’d want for making the most of your time there, and we’ll hope to be back in future.

    Carna House is a wonderful getaway, a period 1920s cottage with log fires and gas lighting! It's a warm and cosy cottage sleeping up to 8 guests in comfort and seclusion on a private conservation island with your own boat, transfers and support incl.
    The Isle of Carna is a unique place to visit and reconnect with yourself, your friends and family and the natural world. You not only get to rent Carna House, a warm, cosy and comfortable cottage but your own 600 acre private conservation island to explore as well!

  • Staying at Carna was a lovely experience. We all enjoyed our stay a lot, with highlights being climbing the top of the mountain, hiking around the coast, seeing seals peeking out of the water and sitting around the fire at night. The house had everything we needed and more to make us feel at home and the communication with Barnaby and Andy was great. Would definitely visit again, next time hopefully for a longer stay.

    Thalia2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great place for peace and quiet. The boat is fabulous for exploring the wild surroundings of Loch Sunart and for getting up close to seals and other wildlife. House sleeps 8 and is very clean and cosy.
