The Old Schoolhouse has been recently converted into a charming gas-lit luxury paradise. It is situated in its own dramatic bay, over a mile along the North Channel coastal path. It has two double bedrooms and a large kitchen sitting room. The bathroom has a double-ended Victorian roll top bath with views on to the sea. It has two separate WCs, a downstairs cloakroom, and for the enterprising, an outdoor shower for a hot blast after your morning swim. The house and hot water are heated by two wood burning stoves. The fridge and lamps are both run on gas. The Old Schoolhouse is remote and deeply romantic and was designed with honeymooners or artists in mind.
It is a forty five minute walk from the jetty where you will disembark. Whilst children are welcome it may not be that suitable for young children as you are quite removed from the hub of the island.
Dogs are welcome with a cleaning supplement. We advise dog owners that there are ticks in the Highlands and it’s important to guard their dogs with anti-tick treatment for their visit.
A rib is used to transport you to the island on arrival and departure days. A Quad and Trailer will transport your luggage and provisions to your cottage then again on departure ( South Shore only by boat) and there is the opportunity to leave the island on a Wednesday for sightseeing or shopping. Journeys outside this can be negotiated but subject to charge.
We provide, towels, bed linens, oven gloves and tea towels. We also provide you with essential amenities such as a starter pack of toilet roll, kindling firelighters and matches. If you run out of any amenities, you can buy them in our island shop.
For guests that would like to stay connected, we provide free wifi access from the village hall for all our cottages.
The season opens at the end of March and closes at the end of October
