The Magic Bus, a cosy and unique getaway for the nature-loving eco-traveller looking for something cute and quirky.
On a southwest facing hillside with stunning views of Loch Duich and Loch Alsh below and surrounded by a hazel and birch woodland. Within walking distance of the village of Dornie which has places to eat and drink, a local shop and the famous Eilean Donan Castle, on the road to Skye.
Great if you enjoy an evening fire in nature, peace and tranquillity of the Scottish Highlands.

The space
(NOTE - Please check also our other accommodation, The Magic Hut, a newly built Shepherds Hut that is just as Magic and has a full kitchen and views of Eilean Donan Castle from the window!!!!)

The Magic Bus was a well travelled Mercedes 709 minibus before it became the stationary version it is now. It has a bright spacious, hand made interior. Its main area is light and functional with a raised doublebed area to the front of the bus.
The bus enjoys 180° of sea view over Loch Duich and the Isle of Skye in the distance. Weather permitting you can enjoy the sunset and a BBQ in the sitting area outside.
Inside you can keep warm even in the coldest of nights with the log burner making The Magic Bus the perfect romantic winter getaway.
Freshly baked bread from a nearby small village bakery, real coffee and fairy lights are just a few of the touches that add up to the Magic!
