Holiday Rental House
This listing is for a one room rental with shared bathroom. We are located just 3 minutes walk from a beautiful isolated sandy shore where u can discover caves, shells & fresh water springs (when the tide is out) & walk a few miles to Coll beach (when it's very quiet, you may see salmon jumping) The peaceful 'big sky' environment is wonderful for outdoor activities, a great place to relax in the very fresh air. If you're lucky you may be awed to see the magic of the 'Northern Lights' (Aurora Borealis) In summer. You will have access to our two bathrooms, sitting room and are free to use the kitchen. Your bedroom is located next to the back porch, which provides a bit more privacy as no one else comes through there.

You will most likely meet my mother on arrival. PLEASE NOTE: Supplement for dogs are £10 per night. Please state in your booking message if you are are bringing a dog so I can adjust the quote :) A single fold out bed can be supplied for a third person. Extra person is £15 a night. We will send you detailed directions to the house a few days before you arrive. It is imperative that you have these on the day as GPS' take people to the wrong street and the village is like a maze. If you're traveling before staying with us and won't have the internet, please ask for the directions because you will get lost.More

We really enjoyed our stay! Clean and warm, with lots of snacks. Shared bathroom was not a problem, worth saving that little bit extra you'd spend on a hotel room. House is nicely decorated and close to a secluded beach. I'd highly recommend this room.

How to get there
Taxies from the airport will be around £17. Busses are quite complicated, you would need to take two different ones at different times to get to the house. I'd recommend asking me about what bus to take so you don't get lost. In most cases, my son can pick you up from the airport or ferry terminal for £10. If that is of interest to you, send us a message and we'll see what we can do. Mobile signal is poor at the house. E-mail is the best way to get in touch. The house phone works fine & the number is attached with the directions we sent. We appreciate if you ask any queries a few days before arrival and give us a rough time to expect you so we can look out for the phone if you need us. Regards
