Welcome to Kerrera Bunkhouse! We are in a beautiful location on the south of the Isle of Kerrera, only a short hop from Oban but worlds apart in character. Whether alone or as part of a group, you can enjoy gorgeous views and island charm.
Set in a stunning location, less than 10 minutes walk from Gylen Castle on the south of the island, Kerrera Bunkhouse is the ideal location to get away from it all. The Isle of Kerrera lies just a 5 minute ferry ride from Oban, yet it seems to take you back to a simpler time. There are no vehicles allowed on the island apart from the residents own, and the residents total less than 40 people. The island has a wealth of amazing geological formations that continue to attract geology students and academics from far and wide. There is also a bountiful array of natural wildlife to see and enjoy such as otters, wild goats, sea eagles, golden eagles, seals and dolphins.
Kerrera Bunkhouse itself is small and cosy, thoughtfully laid out and quirkily decorated. There are beds for 7 people, and a small sofa bed that can cater for 2 more. On the ground level, there are two sets of bunkbeds which are housed in separate compartments separated by the stairs, and using curtains these can be private spaces. Up on the mezzanine level are two single mattresses that can be joined together to become a superking bed and also a separate single space.
There is a galley kitchen with full cooking facilities: gas cooker, fridge with small freezer, microwave, pots, pans and crockery. All bed linen is provided.
There is a shower block and toilet adjoining the Bunkhouse.
While there is no TV, there are speakers provided that can be used with any phone/mp3 player. There is a selection of books and games available.
Should you wish, it is possible to hire our Byre (old converted cowshed) for use in the evenings. This is a great space with a large dining table, cosy sofas and a woodburning stove. It's the ideal place for a group of friends to gather for a social evening. Standard charge is £25, which includes a basket of wood for the fire.
