One-of- two detached properties set in a spectacular and secluded location, experience life with an entire island (almost) to yourself when staying at this cosy ground floor property – the perfect retreat for unwinding from life's daily stresses.

Soak in your hot tub and gaze out across your magnificent island and Highland surroundings. Sleeping just two guests, your romantic Island retreat is a unique holiday haven. Set in magical tranquillity, the enchanting, self-contained accommodation comprises the ground floor of one of the only two buildings on the island. Wave goodbye to your car on the mainland and enter a world that is almost your very own.

 

The single-storey accommodation has been arranged to ensure you return to complete comfort after a day out exploring this corner of Scotland. Enjoy the magnificent scenery from the warmth of your bijou holiday home. Put your feet up and simply relax within its homely living space.

 

Enjoy the novelty of being met by the owner, who will take your luggage over to your holiday home. Follow the winding wooden path, cross the floating bridge and enter your special apartment. Discover the atmospheric lounge/diner, where you can watch TV and chat about your exciting holiday. Prepare tasty fresh seafood in the recently upgraded kitchen and dine together as you take in the magnificent vistas outside. Find the inviting double bedroom and the bathroom also conveniently close by.

 

Bask in the warm Scottish sunshine as you BBQ out in your courtyard garden behind the house. Sit out on the shared patio at the front to watch the sun go down after a marvellous day. Enjoy a cool glass of wine or a warming whisky and absorb the serenity of the incredible setting.

Fabulous stay in the downstairs of the old curing station. Ian, Jess, family and Dubh the dog are the perfect hosts. Great location to see the many delights of this part of the west coast and nearby munros.

The cottage was in a lovely position on Dry Island with fabulous views but we hadnt realised our outside area was not exclusively ours as Shellfish Safari customers met in this same area.

The cottage is comfortable and had everything I needed and plenty I didnt even know I needed. If you are going to complain about noise/footsteps above you from time to time then dont go. In that respect it is the same as being in a hotel. Ian and his family did there utmost to make our stay enjoyable.
