Soa Cabins - Oystercatcher Back

Self Catering Ruaig

'Oystercatcher' is one of two ensuite, four-season, luxury glamping pods on our family croft at Ruaig.

The cabins are yards from the shore with direct access to a sandy beach and stunning views over to Soa, Mull and Iona. The cabin is ideal for two people but will sleep up to four with a pull-out sofa bed. A travel cot and high chair booster seat is available on request but please note that the maximum cabin occupancy is four people and this includes babies and children.

Weekly bookings only June to August and at Christmas and New Year.
Minimum two night stay at other times.
Mid season (April to May and September to October) £90 per night.
Low season (November to March) £85 per night.

Please contact us to check availability as only weekly bookings will
show on the accompanying chart. We also offer longer stays at
discounted rates off-season. Please ask.



The ground floor comprises a simple open-plan space with double bed and pull-out sofa bed on one side and a mini kitchen and dining table and chairs on the other. There is an ensuite bathroom with electric shower, toilet, handbasin and heated towel rail, and a well-equipped mini kitchen, complete with fridge, microwave, twin hob and sink. Each cabin has its own decking area, picnic table and BBQ bucket. All bedlinen, towels, crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment are provided and there is a small selection of children’s board games. Buckets and spades can be borrowed. There is free wi-fi but no television.

Both the bed and sofa bed have large storage drawers underneath them. A glass patio door faces the shore and opens onto a decking area and a grassy space with a picnic table.

From the ferry terminal (4 miles) turn right at the top of the pier road, then next right again. Follow the shore for approximately two miles until the road veers inland again. After another half mile or so, turn right at the staggered crossroads, signposted Ruaig. At the end of the tarmac road, turn left over a cattle grid and you will see the cabins and carpark ahead of you.

From the airport (8 miles) turn left at the end of the airport road, then left again at the next T-junction. Stay on this road for about four miles, passing through Crossapol, Baugh, Heanish and Scarinish, and past the turn off to the pier and ferry terminal. Take the next right to follow the shore. After approximately two miles, the road veers inland again. Keep going for another half mile or so, then turn right at the staggered crossroads, signposted Ruaig. At the end of the tarmac road, turn left over a cattle grid and you will see the car park and cabins ahead of you.

If you enter our postcode into your SatNav, it will probably tell you that you have reached your destination when you get to Ruaig Farm (before the turn off at the crossroads). Ignore it and keep following the directions above. This is a small island and the whole of Ruaig and Salum share the same postcode!

If you are travelling on foot, there is a Ring and Ride Bus service which can be booked in advance on 01879 220419 but it may not come all the way down our road.


There is one car parking space for each cabin and additional cars may be parked in the field at owners’ risk.


We are sorry but NO dogs or other pets, even if you keep them in your car.
We will try to make an exception for guide dogs or assistance dogs if contacted in advance. Maximum occupancy is four people per cabin. This includes babies and children. There is a wheelchair accessible path from the carpark to the deck at the front of the cabins but please note that you cannot get a wheelchair into the ensuite bathroom.
