Following an extremely successful first year (2018), and an equally successful second year (2019), we are delighted to announce that "Egroeg" will be available for B&B in 2020. If, like us, you like to explore the less well-know parts of Skye - whilst still being within easy travel of the "hot-spots" - then we invite you to join us for an experience that we hope you will find both relaxing & memorable. GoToStKilda - For visitors planning on making the trip out to St. Kilda, Egroeg B&B is only 5 minutes drive from the slipway at Stein. If you are interested in using Egroeg B&B as a "base" for your trip, please do get in touch.
Covid-19: - With the continueing uncertainty regarding both travel & accomodation in Scotland, we have decided to remain closed - at least until the middle of 2021. If you would like to visit us later on in the year, please get in touch by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will be pleased to discuss your requirements.
Egroeg - Egroeg is a contemporary, architect designed, “upside down” house – with three guest bedrooms (all en-suite) on the ground floor and superb views - across The Minch, to N. Uist & Harris - from the split-level first floor, where the living-area and kitchen-dining area are all seamlessly integrated into a large open-plan living space.
A wood-burning stove completes the exclusive ambiance …
Location - Lochbay is located on the Waternish peninsula - the following distances & times may be of use;
Bedrooms – Two “double” (en-suite shower-bath) and one “twin” (en-suite shower). All bedrooms are carpeted throughout and have built-in cupboards, complete with hair dryer, hanging-space & storage baskets. The double beds are "double" (not "King" or "Queen" size).
