Built right on the coast on the ruin of a netsman’s bothy, the cottage boasts spectacular views of the mountains of Eigg, Muck, Rum and the Cuillins of Skye as well as the green and turquoise waters of Fascadale bay.
The bay itself is stunning. Banks of rounded stones, cast up by countless storms, line the shore. At low tide a beach of pale sand, which gives the waters their colour, is exposed. This is where the boats landed their catch, to be stored in the ice house, which remains to this day.
In summer you can watch the sun setting behind the islands soundtracked by the gentle swell of water. The winter months are different but just as beautiful, full of crashing waves, swirling spindrift and the crackle of the woodburning stove.
The cottage has two twin rooms and one double, all of which have en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen has cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer.
All of our properties are supplied by private water sources, burns or springs. The water is tested by the local authority environmental health department each year and is perfectly safe to drink and to use for washing or cooking. Guests who may prefer the taste of processed water rather than the real thing are welcome to bring their own supplies of drinking water.
On occasion, this cottage is available to book for 3 days at a time. Please phone our estate office to check availability.
