We realise that run of the mill cottages or hotels may not be for everyone, so we are out and about spotting the unique, wonderful and truly bizarre!  From hobbit houses to yurts, we aim to bring you something very different!

Hostels are also a little different, and gone are the days of sharing a dorm with 16 walkers in need of a bath! Families and retirees are using bunkhouses more and more as the facilities are excellent, the experience unique and it can certainly be an adventure!

Go on – live a little, do something different and make some memories!

Eigg Time – 2 Unique and Quirky Bothys and a Shepherds Hut – Isle of Eigg

A trip to one of the Eigg Time properties is certainly going to be an experience! There’s cosy eco-cabin Sweeney’s Bothy for two, with an outside shower and no wifi – it’s just you, your books and a full wall of window looking out to sea. Then there’s the Shepherd’s Tin Hut for two, with its wood burning stove and clever space saving furniture for easy living. Then Laig Beach Bothy, perfect for a family of four – a luxury bothy right on the beach, with plenty of space, underfloor heating and wifi. The owner of the 3 properties picks you up from the ferry on arrival and takes you back – kicking and screaming…!
