With wide, open views out to the Isle of Rum, life in Sweeney's bothy is cosy, simple and completely relaxing. The bothy has everything you need - a wood burning stove, a small but well equipped kitchen, a super-comfy double bed, a table, an armchair and a library snug with an eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction, maps and books about Eigg. Sweeney's Bothy sits beneath the cliffs of Cleadale in the north east of the Isle of Eigg, a community owned island with spectacular landscapes and abundant wildlife. Climb to the top of the incredible and unique Sgurr of Eigg for truly fantastic views. Paddle or swim off the magical Singing Sands or in Laig Bay. Then return to Sweeney's, eat and sleep well. Perfection.
“For anyone looking to connect back to the simple life - Sweeny’s Bothy is the place! such a delight. Wonderful location. Everything is provided for to make your stay most memorable on Eigg! Loved the stove, you can get couried up into the reading corner - literally spend hours there! I went to Sweeny’s to get my head around a current Art project- I think I found a hidden gem, I’ll be back. Just being there helped my flow. Eigg is tranquil, with so much to see around ever corner. Sunsets and views where incredible. There is so much to find out about the island history, the library is a great extra to an already well thought out space. Did I mention the outdoor shower!! It’s great. A trip here to Sweeny’s will be brilliant in every way.”

“We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Mo-Dhachaidh. A spacious home which was perfect for our family of four. If you want to experience a rural getaway it is the perfect spot with stunning beaches, scenery and nature walks straight from your front door! The bungalow provided everything we needed for our weeks stay including an extremely well-equipped kitchen, BBQ, Wi-Fi, sky tv, washing machine, travel cot, powerful hairdryer and plenty of books to suit all ages for rainy days. Both Christine and Tracey made sure we had everything we needed and were very welcoming. We loved the walk over the hill to Bay MacNeil and to Ardnamurchan Point which we visited twice during our stay. The lighthouse tour is worth doing and we were lucky enough to see dolphins from the top! The beaches are fantastic with amazing rockpools to occupy children (and adults) for hours! The area is surrounded by nature – the deer visited us most days and we saw eagles on the ridge behind the house. There is a well-stocked shop in Kilchoan which is around four miles away but for a larger shop you can catch the ferry to Tobermory, Isle of Mull which is a pretty town with plenty of shops to browse and eateries. We had perfect weather during our stay so cooked outside most nights, but we did order a curry from Sanna Spice which was delivered to our door and was very tasty! At night you can watch the sunsets from the lounge window which are breath-taking. Portuairk is a very special part of the world and we will definitely be returning. ”
Wake to the morning call of Invercaimbe's resident Curlews and fall asleep after witnessing one of Arisaig's spectacular sunsets. Perched directly above the beach, Invercaimbe Croft House is a tastefully decorated, traditional croft house perfectly suited to both families and couples alike.
“We spent two weeks in the accommodation. It was just wonderful. The house is so great right on the beach and the space at the kitchen window is just a dream. It does not matter if the weather is dry and sunny, or the rain is whipping. You are protected behind the window and it feels almost like being outside. Pamela and her niece Paula were very friendly and helpful and responded promptly when we needed something. With the dog we could make beautiful beach walks directly from the house. The rooms are very nicely decorated and in the evening we heated the fireplace. It is really cozy there and the location is just spectacular. Pamela welcomed us with a basket of bread, wine and snacks and everywhere in the rooms there were fresh flowers in vases.”
