A hillside hideout on Eigg, one of the most stunning islands in the Hebrides. Our light and airy bothan was specially commissioned by Studio Hardie, the bespoke craft team from Channel 4's Amazing Spaces. It can sleep four, with a comfy double bed in a mezzanine and a set of cabin bunks. It is well insulated, with doubled-glazed windows, so very cosy, whatever the weather.
It is set in a grassy field overlooking an ever-changing vista of sea and mountains. Well-equipped and tastefully furnished, the bothan is a short walk from the pier, shop and ceilidh hall. Brave an invigorating swim in the sea, walk the beautiful hills or simply sit and soak up the tranquility.
The bothan is an open-plan space with a double-height ceiling and mesmerising views from the large picture windows. There's an extensive outside deck with a picnic table for sunny days. Facilities include a well-equipped kitchen (two-gas rings, full-sized Smeg oven and fridge), dining area, a comfy settee and log burner, separate heated bathroom with spacious shower and Swedish dry-composting toilet.
There is a mezzanine with double-bed (accessed via a steep ladder) and two snug boxed-in bunk beds. The bothan is supplied with bed linen, fluffy towels, organic toiletries and for rainy days: board games, a bluetooth speaker and an intriguing selection of books about Eigg/maps/walking guides.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but please remember that this is a working farm with free-ranging sheep and cattle.
