With wide, open views out to the Isle of Rum, life in Sweeney's bothy is cosy, simple and completely relaxing. The bothy has everything you need - a wood burning stove, a small but well equipped kitchen, a super-comfy double bed, a table, an armchair and a library snug with an eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction, maps and books about Eigg. Sweeney's Bothy sits beneath the cliffs of Cleadale in the north east of the Isle of Eigg, a community owned island with spectacular landscapes and abundant wildlife. Climb to the top of the incredible and unique Sgurr of Eigg for truly fantastic views. Paddle or swim off the magical Singing Sands or in Laig Bay. Then return to Sweeney's, eat and sleep well. Perfection.
The Blacksmith's bothy is a traditional black house with thick lime washed stone walls. These compliment a modern kitchen and wood burning stove. Set in a peaceful location, the building is over 100 years old. It is surrounded by croft land and spectacular cliff top walks. Situated very close to Spar cave and 5 minutes drive to Elgol. A private, screened deck area and hot tub is adjacent to the bothy with sea views through a wooded glade. Perfect as a romantic retreat.
'Shindig' is a traditional stone croft house found at the most Southerly part of Skye, at Point of Sleat. A step up from camping, it's a basic bothy-style experience, although with hot running water and gas oven. No electricity, a leisure battery provides some light, candles provide the rest! There's a pristine white sand beach 2 minutes walk from the house. Stunning seascape views to Rum /Eigg. Use of kayak and fishing gear. This is more "hands-on" than your normal holiday cottage.
