Drovers Cottage Back

Self Catering Barrapol

Drovers is one of the few remaining traditional Tiree thatched cottages.

The cottage has thick stone walls, small deep set windows and a marram grass thatched roof; creating a truly cozy atmosphere in a beautiful setting.
Lapwings, hares and a multitude of other wildlife are frequent visitors in the Spring and can be seen around the cottage.  You may even catch a glimpse of the Corncrake or hear its characteristic call.

Drovers overlooks Loch a’ Phuill, one of Tiree’s nature reserves and towards the cliffs of Kenavara, where fulmars, kittiwakes, razorbills and guillemots nest. Sandaig beach is a just mile walk from Drovers through crofts and machair. 


Kitchen/Living - Cozy and quaint, with everything you need to escape the bustle of everyday day life in comfort. There is a electric cooker, oven, microwave and a fridge. There is also reasonably fast wifi. There is a tv with all catch up channels, DVD player and bluetooth speakers  And of course books, games and dvds for those rainy days in. After a busy day exploring, curling up by the warmth of the fire is the perfect way to end the day. There is also a storage heater, so you don’t need to light the fire if you don’t want you. Coal can be bought at Crossapol farm, the fuel station near the ferry terminal or at the MacKinnon's “The Big Shed” in Balephetrish.

Double Bedroom - Lovely wood panelled and stone bedroom with a morning view out of the window. All bed linen and towels are provided and there is also an electric blanket with dual controls, and a storage heater.

Bathroom - There is a powerful walk-in shower with plenty of hot water, wash basin, toilet  and heated towel radiato. Towels, soap and toilet rolls are provided. 


Shops can be found in Scarinish and Crossapol, and a RBS branch in Scarinish. There are numerous attractions across the island and more information can be found on the Discover Tiree website.

At Heylipol church, follow the road straight on and you will pass a small loch on the left hand side. Further along you’ll start to see the distinctive shape of Drovers Cottage appear on the left. You can’t miss it.

From the airport, take the left to Crossapol. When you reach the T junction in front of the beach, follow the right turn for a few miles. You will soon pass Island House as above…
