The house is ideal for groups of all ages and will comfortably accommodate 7 people. Dogs are allowed but under strict supervision. There is a telephone but no internet or mobile coverage. There is no television.

The house is let from Saturday to Saturday and as there is no housekeeper, tenants are expected to leave it as they would like to find it. Linen is not provided so please bring sheets, duvet covers pillowcases and towels. There are spares in the house for emergencies.

There are body boards, baby toys, jigsaws and games available and a large number of reference books about the island. We have put together a handbook offering advice and helpful contacts.


From the ferry, follow the cars to Scarinish, turning left at the T-junction. Continue on through Crossapol until you come to another T- junction. Turn left to Balemartine. Go through Balemartine and on until you get to Hynish and see the harbour, the signalling tower and a collection of houses. Carry on down the track, through two gates and you will see the cottage sitting out on its own at the end.


There is a large fenced garden and parking either within or outside. There is extensive seating and a large outdoor driftwood table. There is also a fire pit.
