Our Cabins

Above is a sneak preview of our forest cabins. It will be impossible to escape the views over the ever changing colours of the coastal scenery!

This year and in particular this month, we have been super busy getting the site ready for Rotunda to arrive and start the build of two custom designed cabins – we are very excited! Our ultimate wish is to provide a relaxed forest cabin feel that offers the best opportunity to take in the very special views from the forest and the best chance of seeing the wildlife pass by. Rotunda answered our brief perfectly from the very first designs and we can not wait to see the buildings come to life when they reach their special and secluded sites.

For now our cabins sleep 2 and are ideal for couples looking for a wilderness and wildlife experience. If you like to soak up exceptional views from your bath you will be able to do this too!

We had hoped to offer accommodation for families and solo travellers but sadly it wasn’t possible to do everything we wanted to do from the outset. Please do let us know if you are interested in other types of accommodation so we can keep you updated.

The circular cabins are based on the ancient wheelhouse design. There is evidence of these prehistoric wheelhouses from the Iron age all over the Western Isles. Just a short walk from the cabins you can see a fine example on Buaile Risary that is complete with cup marks too.

We will be opening for the summer, date tbc as we await all utilities being complete. In the mean time do let us know if you’re planning a visit or sign up below to get notified of when we’re ready to open.  Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments below.

Site visit from Phil Kay at Rotunda. Thumbs up were given for the ground preparation so far – the view from here is going to be amazing!

  2. Hi, I saw this through Karen Robertson’s post, I’m very interested and would love for you to send more details regarding this when your opening for bookings. Looks amazing x

    1. Hi Lorraine. Thank you so much for your interest. We will keep updates on our website and facebook and will be sure to contact you when we have a date we can open. Look forward to your visit!

  3. What a superb design! with an ability to appreciate the views through floor to ceiling windows makes me squeal with delight.

    Keep this spec of consideration in design and you will be sort out ferociously by those of us who love these landscapes, painters, artists, potters, novelists, musicians, songwriters, poets, inclusive of expected twitchers and countryside, island lovers aswell. Fabulous for other passions like trail running etc ..

    I love this.
    See you when you open!

    Very best wishes and kind regards

    1. Thank you Sally for your lovely message and kind words. It really was a must have that the views were a priority and there will likely be a few excited noises from us when we see through the windows in situ for the first time! We hope it will be a place of inspiration for everyone from a variety of backgrounds including creative and bird watchers. Thank you again and look forward to meeting you. Best wishes, Kathryn & Angus

    1. Hi Isabella, thank you for your comment. This is under consideration at the moment. We have had a lot of enquiries about this and depending on the flooring we may be able to welcome well behaved dogs. Very best, Kat & Angus

  4. These are the most amazing cabins I have seen. I love the design and they just seem to blend into the surroundings. I can not wait to see the finished lodge.

    1. Thank you very much Kay. We are getting there with a lot of final work being carried out early June. Looking forward to being able to take some pictures of them when they are complete and then post them soon!
