A working croft in a stunning location Our 4 en-suite heated Wigwams are fully self-contained, with built-in kitchen area, shower room and toilet facilities, dining area, double bed and fold out sofa bed. Each Wigwam has stunning views all around.
Shulista Croft Wigwams are situated at the very north of the Isle of Skye on the stunning Trotternish Peninsula. Shulista is a small, peaceful township within a traditional crofting community.
Our working croft has a flock of Cheviot ewes, two rams and thirteen chickens which all roam the fields around the croft house.
With unsurpassed access to spectacular walks, the Jurassic landscape and the vast array of coastal wildlife, our Wigwams are perfectly located to take advantage of all that this area has to offer.
There are many stunning walks from the doorstep of the Wigwams, including Rubha Hunish, one of the most famous walks on the Isle of Skye and the Quiraing footpath above Connista.
A 10 minute ramble from the croft takes you towards rugged clifftops where you can gaze across the Minch to the Outer Hebrides. Keep a look out for Sea Eagles, Buzzards, Minky Whales and a myriad of sea birds as you go.
After a day of exploring, why not relax outside your Wigwam in the peaceful surroundings of our croft, watching the sunset while listening to the song of our resident Skylarks.
Our 4 Luxury wigwams are situated within our 16 acre working croft, with stunning views over fields to the sea and the mainland beyond. The true definition of “Surf & Turf”!
New in 2014, our top of the range, en-suite Wigwams are fully self contained, with built-in kitchen area, shower room and toilet facilities, dining area, double bed and fold out sofa bed. Each one contains a wall mounted flat screen TV with Freeview & DVD. The Wigwams are well-insulated and fully heated, perfect for all year round holidays.
Each Wigwam has a fire pit and picnic table. We provide a welcome tray with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits. We allow small barbeques and sell charcoal and wood on site. We also stock a range of essentials and our free range croft eggs are available to buy which are the perfect breakfast treat.
Our wigwams comfortably sleep up to 4 people and parking for 1 car is available beside each unit. We can provide bedding and towels for a small extra charge, or guests can choose to bring their sleeping bags.
Each Wigwam contains:
Crofting is small scale, sustainable agriculture in the remote north, west and islands of Scotland. This makes crofts an ideal place for holidays where tourists can share the wide open spaces, clear skies, outdoor lifestyle and natural environment with those who work the land and maintain the old traditions and cultures.
Our croft house dates back to the early 1900's and is perfectly situated in the centre of the croft. We have introduced a small flock of Cheviot ewes, and 2 rams, a Texel called Ringo and a Cheviot called Mouton, who was rescued and hand reared by us. In addition, we have 13 chickens which are frequently seen roaming the fields around the croft house. Our beautiful eggs would be available to purchase on site.
As part of our seasonal activities, guests will be able to observe key highlights on the croft, such as lambing, shearing and the movement of ewe lambs to and from Trodday Island by boat from Aird Bay. In 2013 we successfully raised 2 orphaned lambs by hand feeding. This is a magical experience for children and adults alike, as we have already seen on the croft this year!
Shulista has an extremely low level of light pollution and we have some of the darkest and biggest skies in the UK. During September this year, we were privileged enough to watch the Aurora Borealis on several occasions from our croft. The Wigwams are perfectly positioned to allow guests to enjoy this phenomenon from the comfort of their porch (your very own, personal planetarium!)
In addition to our Wigwams, we also run a small certificated Motorhome site, in a completely separate part of the croft. This offers 5 pitches with electic hook up and water points.
