This is a relatively new
house, completed in 2001 on the site of an old crofter's cottage, which was last
occupied in about 1950. We rebuilt the ruined dwelling, the steading and the
dry-stane dyke which forms our front boundary. Our family and friends use it a
lot and it is let at other times (between March and November).
The Cottage has been designed to:-
Be useable by people of
nearly all abilities.
There is level access into the house. The ground floor comprises a porch, kitchen, living room,
bathroom and double bedroom. Upstairs are two twin bedrooms and a second bathroom. If any of your
party has a significant disability please check with us that the house will suit

as there are some hazards that you should be aware of. We have equipment for babies/children and also disabled or elderly people which is available

in sight of the sea. The dining area has 180 degree views up and down
