Shepherd's Cottage has recently been beautifully refurbished after a long let and is now available for holidays. This romantic cottage is an off-grid, remote and private paradise - an ideal place to celebrate anniversaries or weddings.

This charming cottage has been completely renovated with tongue and groove interiors throughout. There is a spacious bathroom with a Victorian roll top bath and lashings of hot water, a large king size double bed and a comfortable sitting room with magnificent views.

The cottage is a 45 minute walk along the North Channel coastal path from the island jetty. It has a king size double bedroom and comfortable sitting room with magnificent views.

The cottage is electricity free with a fridge run on gas and lighting is by gas lamps (tuition will be given on arrival as to how to manage them). Heating and hot water is run from the gas stove, water is from a private spring (fresh peaty water is safe to drink).
