The space
Looking for more space?? There are 3 other listings for this property - you can rent an individual room or the whole house!!

Please note this is a 'Self Sustaining' ^Eco (economical) House to keep overheads to a minimum. This requires you to choose between the option of using either the provided clean covers, sheets and cases which you'll need to apply to the bed and bedding. Or if prefered for speed and simplicity the 'Eco Sleeping Bags with deluxe pillows' or a standard pillow and case. (everything is cleaned after each use)

There is a hand and bath towel for each guest. And bath mat for each booking. At the end of your stay, you are requested to please strip your bed and place the covers plus sheets and the towels and bath mat in their respective allocated laundry box.

Please note:
Guests staying in the 'Eco Lodge' also agree to run the 'Hetty Hoover' over the floors and to ensure that the bathroom and kitchen are clean ready for the next guest to enjoy as you have.
And for all the inner bins to be emptied into the appropriate outdoor bin before they vacate the property.

Guest access
You have use of the entire house and gardens / decking area, apart from the Attic room which remains in use by the proprietress. Although she will not be resident during your stay. There is also a bike suitable for a 9-12 year old and a stunt scooter! (outdoor table and seating available within the brick outhouse)

Other things to note
The 'breakfast included' is basic and just consists of cereals. If I am on Uist then milk will also be provided. If I am not then there will be a strong chance that Milk has been left by a previous guest or otherwise there is a supply of UHT within the cupboard that can be utilised.

During your stay
I will be available most times and live just a short walk away. Occasionally I split my time between Edinburgh, Inverness and Germany and hence the necessity for the house to be 'self-sustaining' and '^Economically efficiently managed'. There is no 'paid housekeeper' and so it is absolutely essential that you adhere to the condition of vacating the house on time and proactively leaving it in a clean and tidy, stripped condition ready for the next guests which could be arriving within the same hour of your departure. (please see the guest rules below)
